Companies catching up to Tesla?

2020 was a turning point in the Volkswagen Groupís electrification effort with sales of all-electric vehicles increasing by 214%, dwarfing plug-in hybrid sales.

VW sold 231,600 all-electric vehicles in 2020.

Volkswagen ID.3: 56,500 units
Audi e-tron: 47,300 units
Volkswagen e-Golf: 41,300 units
Volkswagen e-up!: 22,200 units
Porsche Taycan: 20,000 units

So not quite half of Tesla, but with the ID.4 coming out that should give them another bump in 2021.

e-up! is kind of an offensive name from a pronunciation POV.

Sounds like something you might say to a mule.
