The Model 3 is quicker, stops sooner, tackles the figure-eight faster, has more horsepower and torque, steers quicker, and uses a quarter of the energy than the BMW 330i.

They should really compare it to the 340i, the 330i is a lot cheaper if you ignore incentives.

That being said, it performs very well, especially in the 45-65 test, it will pass very rapidly.

Tesla knows they sell EVs by outperforming equivalently priced gassers. None of the other companies have figured that out yet.
Much higher performance for much less money? I don't know about that. This Giulia is slightly slower and $44k (long range Model 3 with luxury package starts at 49k)
I guess you are arguing Don that Tesla doesn't know how to sell EVs? Very few of these people take the cars to the track. They want the fastest from a stop light or a on ramp, with good overall handling while having a green image. The Model 3 is set to sell 10x Bolt EV volumes, even the 2-3x more expensive Model S sells as well as the Bollt EV does (and it is discounted 10 to 20%). If you want fast and cheap, buy a Dodge Charger/Challenger SRT8 or higher. BMWs are relatively slow for their price bracket too.
