I like Tesla, but not for the reasons you’re thinking. No, I’m not gonna carry the banner for the “EV Revolution,” and no, I don’t want a robo chauffeur to drive me around, and no, I don’t think Elon Musk is a billionaire dreamboat. Okay, maybe that last one holds some weight, but that’s not the point. I like Tesla because it’s not afraid to try something different, to forge a fresh path, to make mistakes. Tesla is a risk taker, and in an industry filled to the brim with plodding dinosaurs, the California-based automaker is a hairy mammal – small, quick, and a sign of things to come.
