I recently saw a PS2 the first time in real life. It does look nice (it was the top spec version with Íhlins brake calipers etc.) - though it's a much more massive car than the Model 3, with more or less the same space inside.
This is a concession to aesthetics. Why an AMG GTS is so small inside considering it's much wider than any 4 door sedan? All those curves take some space.

Of course, a lot of people is constrained by practical concerns, that's why the Skoda Octavia is a top seller. But there's a whole lot of other people who couldn't care less about practicality. I guess that's the point of luxury, being oblivious to the practical concerns of common-sense people.

Re: EV and PHEV corner

Rumors of Model Y shipments from China are persistent.

There are apparently no Q3 shipments of Model 3 LR coming at all - we will know when the first people get one (or the showroom models finally show up).

Some are well off and indulge, others leave out planting a tree and eat their seeds, more-or-less figuratively. Choices, choices :-)

That's an issue. The ships carrying the cars can be tracked but the final destination of the cars is known until last moment.

It's a multicultural country. No surprise every culture and even every family has a unique relationship with money. I better close with someone smarter than me, a wild haired guy from the XIX century:
