Tesla is at an advantage since they now sell their patented powertrain components to rivals and is focused on building the market to bring prices down for the average car buyer (Hurst, A). Audi "we delight customers worldwide" is more consumer based where it offers more luxury to the customers and have yet to evolve fully into the manufacturing of eco-friendly cars. Toyota aims to be the most successful car company like Tesla that is why they have also gone in electric cars and now severed ties with Tesla. Weaknesses Tesla has a lack of liquidity.

In the late 1960's, America began to see the influences of foreign vehicles. Prior to that, cars were bigger and less fuel efficient, allowing the Japanese to gain substantial market share with the smaller, more economical vehicles, and the need to react to this pressure was even greater at Ford.

Eco-friendly customers will be the easiest to reach as the cars are doing almost 0% harm to the environment. What separates Tesla from the other electric car manufacturers is that they are offering double the driving range, but also the style and quality that Tesla is known for. Tech savvy consumers are going to be amazed by this ever growing technology and they will have something that almost nobody has.
