I do agree though that the rest of the companies are late to the EV game, but I don't think that will cause them to fall behind to Tesla especially since Tesla plans to (or already has) open source everything.
I mean, you're correct, but does that make it better or worse?

Stop to consider it for a moment. Incumbent automakers have left so much demand on the table, that the uncorking of said demand eclipses the sales of every other car in the market (of the same type [sedan]).
