As the history books prove, startup electric automakers traditionally fail in their goal of bringing a brand-new electric car to market. Even Tesla, the only automaker in half a century to succeed in making the transition from startup to mainstream automaker, has suffered its share of tough times.

Who will be lucky and who will not? Here are just five startup automakers we think are eager for a piece of Tesla’s pie — either directly or indirectly — as well as our verdict on who will succeed.
