It's all good news for Tesla as problems and setbacks plague its rivals. Tesla had record deliveries in the Q4 2019 while production of the Model Y in China is about to start. However, Volkswagen has postponed deliveries of the ID.3 to August due to software issues and Porsche presented a meager range for the Taycan. Furthermore, Daimler sold only 55 units of the Mercedes-Benz EQC in Germany. So, what does Juan Joya Borjas think of the situation?
If you have never heard of him, first check out what he has to say in the tweet below. We advise you to watch it when you can have the sound on. It is an inescapable part of a full experience.
What did you think of the analysis? If you are Spanish or you speak the language, you probably realised how what he said had nothing to do with the subtitles. That’s because it didn't: this is all a joke.
Juan Joya Borjas is a Spanish comedian known as “El Risitas,” or “Giggles.” This video became viral in 2015 because you laugh even if you do not understand a single word of Spanish. His laughter is contagious, and the footage has been used ever since to make fun of various subjects, from Formula 1 and Brexit to Tesla competition, as you have just seen.
Despite being a cheerful way of telling what is currently happening, we have to say we are glad to see legacy automakers trying to sell EVs. The problem is no Tesla-killers to date have not even scratched the surface of what the American EV company does or offers.
Many have tried to adapt their current cars to have electric powertrains. The few that conceived these cars from the ground up to be electric still develop and produce them in the same fashion as their combustion-engined products.
One of Tesla’s goals was to get other companies to sell EVs. That mission has been accomplished. Now, it patiently waits for these old legacy manufacturers to offer a vehicle that will not only have buyers but fans. So desirable that customers – many – will put deposits and wait for months, if not years, until they are presented. Until then, we suspect "El Risitas" will keep on laughing. Contagiously.
