Tesla, there has been a debate since 2016
The CEO Elon Musk, just a few weeks ago, relaunched about assisted driving. The next Tesla, it will work”almost entirely in autonomous mode“. At the end of April Li Yunfeispokesperson for BYDand Tesla’s number one rival, took a hard time saying: “We think that driving technology completely autonomous independent of humans is far, far away and practically impossible“.

At the time, Tesla produced a video of a Model X which the director of the Autopilot program later declared to be false. All this does not seem to have weighed on the success of the Austin company. In this regard, the comment by Gianluca DiLoretopartner of Bain & Company responsible for the Automotive practice in Italy: “Thebuying cars like Tesla is not rational. It is not the car with which I have to make the commute from home to work. It’s an iconic purchase. In addition to having a clear conscience, because the car has no emissions, the customer feels cool because he has a product that many others don’t have. It is not comparable to having a Ferrari but it is only beautiful because it is Tesla. How it works matters up to a certain point. And that the product keeps all its promises is a detail that comes later”.
