QOTD: What’s Occurring With Tesla?


Mr. Man wrote this morning about Tesla and the way it seems that the corporate’s vehicles are being bought to rental fleets. As most of you understand, giant fleet gross sales are sometimes seen as a unfavourable mark on the well being of an organization and may also tank resale values.

Tesla costs* are additionally down, by giant quantities, throughout the board, as the corporate fell wanting estimated deliveries

*Apparently, CNN used the identical story from Reuters, however Reuters frames this as a Tesla being extra aggressive in the direction of rivals in its headline, whereas CNN’s headline is extra impartial. I might guess that the completely different framings come from every outlet having its personal editor(s) slapping on a headline on the story, and every outlet’s editor(s) having a distinct interpretation of the story.

Anyway — what is going on at Tesla? Is it Elon’s Twitter involvement? Is it simply that Tesla is being battered by the identical headwinds as the remainder of the trade? Is the corporate’s repute for poor high quality catching as much as it? Is it as a result of competitors from different OEMs is rising? One thing else? Some mixture of the above?

Hold forth beneath.
