I dont see how.They want to sell as many as possible. You and others want to buy as many as possible. the issue is production numbers. If production equalled global demand they would be everywhere. They aren't until production increases. You should know that.

Europe starts receiving the ID3 from mid next year - we have to wait another 2 years, which just so happens to coincide with the governments announced incentives.
