Owners of the EV1 claimed that the car was amazing. Not only was it comfortable, but it was also saving the planet. Shortly after the release, GM lost faith in the electric car and got rid of them.

What does that tell us, Tesla may be having great challenges when it comes to resources and key capabilities? These include; The focus of Tesla Company is on a niche in the automotive industry, which is building and selling electric cars. To a company like General Motors, the electric cars line of business is considered a side business, hence it only needs to study the patterns of Tesla’s cars then build on of its kind that will take Tesla out of business (Debord, 2015).

There are two motors in question; they are the hybrid and electric motor. Since they are both still fairly new, the idea of knowing which to improve and which to terminate is a difficult decision. However, this is a good time to look at both motors in their semi mass production stage. Before we invest too much money into the wrong one. We will see how the hybrid takes the lead and the electric car is falling behind due to how the motors fuel is made, how much distance is really worth and how much good comes out of both motors.
Tesla’s supercharger network puts it ahead of the competition and creates an opportunity for increased revenue. Disadvantages: Negative Net Income: Perhaps the most obvious disadvantage is that traditional “value” investors are turned off by the company’s consistent negative net income, leaving nothing to return to shareholders in terms of dividends or share buybacks. Disconnected between technology and business model: The innovativeness of Tesla’s technology is not matched by the innovativeness of its business model. In fact, there is no change to the business model at all.

Government and Industry will always be resisting this idea because for them it doesn’t make any economical sense. All the infrastructure, and technology that was develop during the EV1 program could be implemented today, however we still are using petroleum burning vehicles, and developing hydrogen-burning cars. Paine’s film illustrates the struggle between the engineering team, and the management group.
You would also need to replace tires more frequently because of the increased weight of the hybrid cars. Plus, most mechanics do not know how to fix a hybrid car because they are not trained. Based on these disadvantages, the owner of the car may lose a lot of money just to help out the environment.
Tesla Motors holds a unique position in the automobile industry. When musk formulated his vision of Tesla Motors, he decided to defy the status quo and completely change the automobile industry. He noticed other automobile manufacturers were not producing electric cars as well as they could be produced, which led him to Tesla’s niche (Stringham, 2015, p. 87). According to Musk, “the single largest macro problem that humanity faces this century is solving the sustainable energy problem—that is, the sustainable production and
