I don't own the car or the stock, so I have no horse in this race, but these articles seem a bit weird to me.  Tesla has been touting a 35k price point for years, and has been getting publicly blasted for not reaching it.  Why would them finally getting there be a surprise to anyone, or some sign of trouble?

Tesla is lowering prices to head off oncoming competition.  In the next 2 years we will see if there is room for everyone to sell electric cars.

I've been looking at affordable electrics for my next car, and there seems to be decent competition. I think Tesla is definitely moving from being known as "the electric car" to "an electric car".

I'm curious to see if anyone else manages to reach the blindingly obvious conclusion that you'll have an easier time selling electric cars if you can point to a way to charge them quickly for long road trips.  You can take every other thing Tesla has done out of the equation-- people look at the Bolt and the long-range Leaf and other similar vehicles in the US and think "how the heck could I drive that on a road trip?"

Tesla has an answer.  They built their charging network out.  The nav system will plot your hops between them without any extra work.  Nobody else has a fast-charge network like that yet in the US, and so everybody else's vehicles, no matter how good or bad they are, are relegated to "second-car only" status.
