RV_ Posted May 1 Report Share Posted May 1 (edited) For investors. Ford told the truth when Toyota, and most of the legacy car makers are hiding it, found they could not compete in manufacturing costs/price, never mind their dealership model middle men taking their additional cut when they can't even compete in margins. This thread is about what is happening now. Now I see why even PHEVs cost more than a Tesla with the old Li-Ion battery packs. This is the latest info available. But it ties together all the other info about their increased investment this year, as well as the reason for their price reduction this past month. As well as their surge to ramp up their battery factories and to strengthen their supply sources. If you are not going to watch the video and hate electric cars then fine. NO ONE IS TRYING TO GET YOU OR ANYONE TO BUY AN EV! But if you are an investor you may want to spend the under 14 minutes to watch this video from Australia: Why ARK Invest Predicts Tesla Stock Will Hit $2,000 By 2027 And this is in addition to Tesla battery news. Excerpt from today's news: "Cathie Wood, CEO of investment management firm ARK Invest, has long been bullish on Tesla. Wood recently explained why she thinks Tesla’s stock could hit at least $2,000 by 2027, representing “one of the most important investment opportunities of our lifetimes.” Wood expects Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta to someday support a fleet of robotaxis, noting that the autonomy business would be a key driver of her $2,000 expected value estimate on the stock. The news, as shared by ARK Invest and reported by CNBC, represents an increase from Wood’s previous target of $1,500 by 2026, predicted last June. In the recent note, Wood and Ark Invest predicted that Tesla’s robotaxis could bring in as much as $8 or $10 trillion of revenue by 2030. Tesla has remained one of Ark’s largest holdings for the flagship Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK), with a total 9.4 percent weighting. Along with Ark’s expected value of $2,000 per share, Wood also shared a bull case price target of $2,500, as well as a bear case price target of $1,400. The firm predicts that Tesla’s robotaxi business will contribute 67 percent of its expected enterprise value, and 64 percent of its expected EBITDA in 2027. Additionally, it expects that Tesla’s EVs will contribute 47 percent of revenues in the same year, albeit at “substantially lower margins than robotaxi revenue.” Source: https://cleantechnica.com/2023/04/29/why-ark-predicts-tesla-stock-to-hit-2000-by-2027/ More: Powerwall news - Mon, April 24, 2023 at 8:58 AM MDT - Tesla raises 2023 spending forecast as it races to ramp up output: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tesla-raises-2023-spending-forecast-145827659.html?utm_source=pocket_saves How Tesla Is Quietly Expanding Its Energy Storage Business Tesla overtakes Audi in global car sales, on track to beat BMW and Mercedes April 22, 2023 Tesla has overtaken German carmaker Audi in global sales for the first time in Q1 of 2023, selling 422,875 cars globally to beat Audi’s total of 415,700.

The German factory reached a production rate of 5,000 cars per week in March up from 3,000 in December after opening just over 12 month’s ago. Tesla’s German factory is experiencing incredible growth that could see it hit 10,000 cars per week by the end of this year. With Tesla’s staggering global production growth over the last four years set to continue this year, the EV maker on track to hit between 1.8 and 2 million cars in 2023. That’s up from 1.3 million in 2022. https://thedriven.io/2023/04/22/tesla-overtakes-audi-in-global-car-sales-on-track-to-beat-bmw-and-mercedes/ Most of the above is from this month and all are less than a year old.
