In the last week, Credit Suisse noted that Tesla has around 80% of shares of the U.S. market for EV (electric vehicle) but the company anticipates that the auto producer’s “exclusive position” with its Model 3 will encounter a serious challenge from Ford in 2020. In a note to investors, Dan Levy—Analyst at Credit Suisse—wrote, “For all the rivalry entering the market we are still in anticipation of the EV that will be a spot on competitive threat to Model 3, particularly in the U.S. Tesla has a scope for opportunities with a clear cutthroat lead.”
While a testimonial like this might be normal among Wall Street’s upbeat Tesla analysts, Credit Suisse is one of the firm’s skeptics. Credit Suisse had an emaciated rating on Tesla shares as the firm started covering the stock during June, with a price target of $200. That is over 40% below the stock’s close in the recent $346.11 per share. Levy said, “Yet to the degree, Tesla persists to fight back with the basic blocking and tackling of the automobile business (i.e., production, delivery logistics, and service), it jeopardizes not capitalizing on this opportunity.” He thinks the electric carmaker will soon deal with a key test as “the best in class,” since Ford is anticipated to publicize the Mach-E, which is a line of Mustang-inspired electric SUVs.
On a similar note, recently, Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated that Tesla will manufacture cars in Berlin. Less than 3 Weeks following starting trial manufacturing of cars in China, Tesla declared the site of its second facility outside the U.S.: Berlin. In a tweet, CEO Musk stated that the facility will manufacture batteries, vehicles, and powertrains “starting with the Model Y.” The industrial unit is also estimated to fabricate the Model 3, which is the company’s top-selling car.
