Tesla is unrivaled when it comes to producing electric cars in the United States. The clean-energy automaker is responsible for the majority of the new electric vehicle market share in America. It is difficult to be the best and even more difficult to remain the best in the eyes of consumers. Fisker could pose a serious threat to the Tesla Model 3.

Tesla may currently be a more popular electric car maker than Fisker, but affordability plays a big role in its market dominance. One of the many reasons the Toyota RAV4 is America’s most popular SUV is that it’s so affordable. Tesla models have been affordable at times thanks to the federal tax credits for electric cars, but their prices fluctuate.
Tesla cars prices have decreased and increased in short periods of time. Some of the basic models were sold out completely at times, leaving only the more expensive higher-end trim options. According to Car and Driver, the Fisker Pear EV will start at less than $30,000. That would make it more affordable than any Tesla Model on the market, including the Tesla Model 3. Federal tax incentives for electric cars could make Fisker more expensive.
The Tesla Model 3 is more expensive than most of its newer competitors. The electric vehicle space will become more competitive over time, and models such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Volkswagen ID. 4 is gaining strength. Tesla prices could hurt the company in the long run as more affordable alternatives become available.
Elon Musk says Tesla is not focusing on electric cars this year

While most automakers are scrambling to produce the most popular electric vehicle, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has other plans. Tesla has announced that it will focus on meeting existing demands before producing any new electric vehicles for its lineup. This may be due to the lack of materials for production as well as the long list of standby orders that consumers are waiting for.
Tesla also announced that the Tesla Bot is one of its main priorities through 2022. Elon believes that the robotics industry could become more influential than the automobile industry over time. Tesla’s shift in focus from electric cars to robots may annoy some potential consumers. Consider a high number of unfulfilled orders, and you’ll have the perfect conditions for another automaker to pounce on the number one spot and steal the number one spot from Tesla.
Fisker could become a much larger player in the electric vehicle space if the Fisker Pear EV becomes popular. If it offers enough range, it could eventually become more popular than the Tesla Model 3.

Unfortunately for the Tesla Model 3, there are plenty of electric vehicles other than the Fisker Pear EV that could take its place. The Volkswagen ID.4 is very popular in Europe, and this popularity may soon have a global impact. Ford Mustang Mach-E has won many awards, as well as the hearts of potential consumers.
The Tesla Model 3 could easily lose its place as one of the most popular electric cars in America. Will the Fisker Pear EV be the electric vehicle that takes the throne from Tesla thanks to its affordable price?
