"It really seems like Tesla is going to fulfill its mission and change the world. It’s going to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport by bringing compelling mass market electric cars to market as soon as possible. Already, Tesla has single-handedly made EVs viable in a way they never had been. And already, the majority of other car companies have followed suit and built an EV. If the Model 3 ends up being as great as they say it’s gonna be, there’s no doubt in my mind that electric cars will be the norm far earlier than they would have been. Which will, in turn, mean that 50 years from now, the atmosphere’s CO2 level will probably be lower than it would have been, cities will be less smoggy than they would have been, global temperatures will be lower than they would have been, the sad polar bear will eat seals again, and about 12 other positive effects that will legitimately affect our lives. Pretty down-the-middle definition of changing the world."
