Why can't other automakers besides Tesla make an EV with a 300+ mile range?

Simple . Electric cars have near zero maintenance. Rotate the tires once or twice a year, refill the wiper fluid, and replace wiper blades every year or so.

If you have a liquid cooled battery like the Chevy Bolt or Tesla you have to check and flush and fill if needed every 100k miles or so. This will eat into their bottom line since most of the profit from selling gas cars comes from the many years of oil changes, gasket replacements, tune ups, fuel injector cleaning, belt and hose replacements, on and on and on forever until it finally all falls apart.

Tesla has gathered so many millions of miles of data from their fleet of cars on the road they have a really good idea how long their electric motors should last. That's why they guarantee their new Tesla Semi truck for one million miles! 💫
