LeEco v/s Tesla, is the very first of its kind, all electric cars war. Tesla from the Valley and LeEco from China, have a lot to prove in 2016, let the hunger games begin. Shall we?
LeEco, the newly rebranded LeTV, from China is all set to take on Tesla. LeEco teased us with its own China made all-electric concept car, called LeSEE. It is a first all-electric competition to Elon Muk’s Tesla cars. It was a global event when Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, launched a new and affordable Model 3. So, this electric car battle is between LeSEE and Model 3.
LeSEE will be launched on 25th April at the Beijing Auto Show. But we all have seen Model 3 and know it will be a great and pocket-friendly car. Can LeEco, make a better electric car? Time only knows!
Shots have been firedt at the valley, by LeEco CEO, Jia Yueting, who challenged Tesla at the LeSEE unveiling event. He is also quoted saying,”Apple is outdated”.
LeEco like any other Chinese company is extremely ambitious. The concept car LeSEE looks like a copy of Tesla’s Model 3, but when you produce in China, cost of production is mminimal. Tesla has already pocketed immense preorders on the day it was unveiled. Can LeSEE do the same magic?
While Tesla is a hardcore electric car manufacturing and innovating company, LeEco, is majorly involved in media, smartphones and VR. It is interesting to see how these companies will bring it to the masses.
LeSEE the concept car EV will be manufactured with partnership and funding from Faraday Future and it will be launched officially with all specs and details in the Beijing Auto Show today.
Quoting the CEO, Yueting Jia, of LeEco,“At LeEco, we are realizing our vision of one ecosystem to provide a seamless, premium connected experience across all of our next-generation devices.”
Quoting the CEO, Elon Musk, of Tesla,“Model 3 orders at 180,000 in 24 hours. Selling price w avg option mix prob $42k, so ~$7.5B in a day. Future of electric cars looking bright!”
Yes, the future is bright as far as electric cars are concerned, be it LeSEE or Model 3, but looking at the global warming and environment woes, we better have these pollution free beasts soon.
Who are you supporting in this electric car battle LeEco v/s Tesla? Or are you neutral on the side of innovation that favours the world.
