Another stated: “In this case I can sell my Tesla and get a German car (Audi, Porsche). The advantage of the charging network wouldn’t exist anymore.
“So I can take a better car quality and a better service network. And business leasing is even cheaper. It is a big mistake for further car selling.”
However, some have been appreciative of Musk’s utilitarian method, saying: “Wouldn’t it be nice if other EV makers would support the Supercharging network.
“Put some money into expanding the infrastructure and make it the base charging stations for all EVs.”
