In an interview with USA Today, Elon said some unnamed automakers have not only inquired about Tesla’s patents, but are going to use them. Time to look again at the TeslaMondo pie charts, which show the EV segment needs to grow if it expects to shoulder the burden of skepticism and justify expansion of EV infrastructure. Will patent-sharing dilute Tesla’s cachet? Nah. If Tesla just maintains its lead and continues to innovate, it’s going to vanguard a major subset of automobiles, akin to Toyota’s dominance in hybrids. So bring on the “me too” electric cars from GM et al. We all know the Beatles from the Monkees anyway.
