Can You — Or Should You — Compare Tesla To The Model T Ford?

In recent years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of comparisons made between Tesla and its range of all-electric cars — and the very early Ford Motor Company, specifically its Model T Ford.

Indeed, with similar production ramp up to the Model T, it’s easy to conclude that the Tesla Model 3 is going to be just as revolutionary to the world as the Model T was. One comparison from Visual Captialist —  — even suggests that Tesla’s ramp up is similar to Ford’s Model T ramp up right down to the increase in routes Tesla customers can drive.

But can you really compare Tesla today to the early Model T Ford? And should you?

We think not — and explain why in the video above.
