  • Or hear me out.

    Its a car company with poor track record and little IP.

    The big car companies produce better more reliable vehicles with even the little things like physical controls being preferred.

    • Big car companies have a pretty bad track record as well. Ignoring the obviously bad brands, Toyota had that accelerator issue with the early Prius, Honda has had it's share of class action suits as well, mainly surrounding engine issues. Nissan, Hyundai/Kia, Fiat/Chrysler, and Mitsubishi are sitting in the back of the class eating glue. GM/Ford are coasting on pickup truck sales and mostly getting beaten out by Mercedes in the fleet vehicle department. Alpha Romeo is trying to sell cars in the US market for some reason, I'm not sure what kind of drugs they're on. German cars are still being sold to people with more money than sense. Volvo is probably not even close to the same company they once were. Then there's the VC money milking scam EV companies that pop up every once in awhile. I think the only one that has a chance is Rivian, but I think their sales are down quite a bit after other electric trucks like the Ford lightning have come out.

      Edit: I forgot about Mazda and Subaru, also with their share of issues.
