The Tesla Model 3 arguably set the EV bar. Now it's time for legacy brands to unleash the competition.

If there's an automaker that has the tools and resources to make a fantastic electric car to rival the Tesla Model 3, BMW should be on the list. In fact, its upcoming i4 is arguably the car to set a new car, so long as BMW actually pushes to make this happen. At this point, no other EV on the planet even comes close to the Model 3 in terms of sales. Added to this, none of the cars that have come to rival the Model 3 have really had any notable success.

Several Tesla competitors are coming soon. While we feel like we've been talking about upcoming Tesla rivals for years – that either never showed up or never really provided any true competition – times are finally changing. The Porsche Taycan has arrived and it's one of the most compelling EV entrants in years. We've also got electric vehicles to look forward to from Polestar (Volvo), BMW, Rivian, Ford, GM, and Volkswagen, just to name a few, though timelines are getting dicey due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the video above, DrivingElectric takes a brief look at the upcoming BMW i4 compared to the Tesla Model 3.
