No. The build quality is bad, and legacy manufacturers have caught up with the technology. The only advantage right now is the charging network, and in two years time that will be gone.
It's just so weird to me that people keep talking about build quality. I can only assume that it comes from reviews of early production 3s, but I have ridiculously high standards & the Tesla's I have owned we're really put together well; with the current one being the best yet. I live in a family that drives the latest Cadillacs, Mercedes-Benz and BMW's. The Tesla's meet or beat these standards side by side.
As much as I like the Rivian, it is definitely showing early production growing pains with panel fit and the such that you saw years ago in the model 3.
Being in a car snob family, the wife's model Y gets examined a lot looking for these supposed quality defects. Anybody in my general region that is curious, is welcome to join in that search, but they just aren't there.
Then there is the Tech. Look, I have a number of EVs and non-EVs, and I like all of my cars and trucks. There is one standard, however, and that is that anytime I am one of the other vehicles I run into things that they do not do, or they do not do as well as the Tesla does. Nobody
is doing software as well as Tesla is (certainly not Ford lol), so just where do these comments come from?
