First the Volt, the Bolt and now the Toyota bZ4X.

But what makes this one different is the company has offered to buy back ALL the vehicles should an owner choose.

The media loves to use the 'Tesla Killer' moniker on everything but from the look of it, it's NOT SO EASY to build a bulletproof EV.

The bZ4X is NO Toyota Prius.

Is this just the beginning that will eventually END a real threat to Tesla's meteoric rise?

Here is a copy of the letter people are getting:
