You can wear your baseball hat backwards but you’ll never be as cool as a black guy

White boys can wear their baseball hats backwards but will never look as cool as a black boy. This comes to mind when looking at the new All Electric SUV vehicles coming from Europe. Jaguar I-PACE and Audi e-tron do what European luxury car makers do best adding nice design and finishing touches and comfort features. Yet they are missing on major issues like total connectivity, autopilot, enhanced navigation, over the air software updates etc. Not to speak that there is no significant network of charging stations European style in the U.S. yet. It is one thing to copy the Silicon Valley and another to be born and live there. Tesla invented it and is still well ahead in the game. Tesla is not perfect either (see my blog below “Tear down than wall ….”)  but my bet is on her for now.
