Tesla is probably the electric car company that has made the biggest splash, but the largest company to introduce an electric vehicle is probably Nissan with its Leaf or Ford with its Electric Transit Connect. However while Tesla has been pursuing the high end and working down. Nissan, Mitsubishi, and a host of companies producing neighborhood electric vehicles and small industrial vehicles have been working from the bottom up. Nissan has more than once repeated its commitment to electric vehicles and they seem to be building the manufacturing facilities to prove it.
If you look through the All electric offerings you will also find the Honda Fit ev, and the Ford Focus ev. Both of these vehicles, like the Transit Connect ev are electric drive train adaptations of petrol vehicles while Nissan and Tesla have designed the EV from the ground up like the older Chev. EV1.
Some of the electric car companies like Zap and Aptera have been bought out or received major funding from Chinese companies. http://cleantechnica.com/2012/05/22/aptera-electri...

Right now there aren't any because all the other have very limited range, and are really only good as second cars. The Tesla is a real car that just happens to be electric.

Many, many smaller EV builders have come and gone. Tesla's biggest competitor in the plug-in field is Fisker. However, Fisker's cars are plug-in hybrids that use gasoline in addition to plug-in electricity.
In addition to Fisker, here are some of the electric car makers that are still building cars (or planning to.)

Fisker is Tesla's main competitor
