NTSB removes Tesla as a party in the investigation of fatal crash

We can't yet address the smaller battery packs, but CEO Elon Musk left a clue for buyers waiting for all-wheel drive models when he responded to reservation holder Brandon Ledford on Twitter. The current analyst consensus rating clocked at 3.2.The technical indicator does not lead us to believe the stock will see more gains/loss anytime soon. "We continue to encourage Tesla to take actions on the safety recommendations issued as a result of our investigation of the 2016 Williston, Florida, crash".

Speaking to this point, Tesla CEO Elon Musk many months ago claimed that Model 3 production would reach 20,000 units per month by the end of 2017, an ambitious goal Tesla didn't come anywhere close to achieving. "Tesla will be profitable & cash flow+ in Q3 & Q4, so obv no need to raise money".

According to Vertical Group analyst Gordon Johnson, Tesla's share price, now at around US$300 apiece, could nosedive to as little at US$84 by the end of next year as a flurry of competitors crowd the EV market.

The company has said the production rate for Model 3 will increase through the second quarter and that it will make 5,000 units a week in about three months.

Tesla has been kicked out of a group investigating a fatal accident involving one of its Model X electric cars, after allegedly "violating" an agreement not to release information about the crash.

The difficulty of keeping drivers in automated vehicles engaged - combined with the broader safety benefits of ensuring that drivers in traditional vehicles aren't peering at electronic devices or nodding off - is a growing safety concern that's spurred several auto companies, including GM and Subaru, to deploy infrared cameras in the cockpit trained on the driver to track head and eye movement. The NTSB chafed that Tesla improperly released incomplete data without authorization.

Not all investors bought Musk's ambitious projections. And during a CBS interview this week, Musk suggested that things are moving in the right direction.

"Last week, in a conversation with the NTSB, we were told that if we made additional statements before their 12-24 month investigative process is complete, we would no longer be a party to the investigation agreement".

"I'm sleeping on the factory floor, not because I think that's a fun place to sleep".

But not everyone is convinced. You might be caught in a "time shift." . He will give the first-ever look inside the Model 3 production line and explain why its production delays have been worse than expected.

Some California Chevrolet dealers have reported selling their own long-range EV, the Chevy Bolt, to customers who canceled Model 3 orders. There will be four more affordable, long-range EVs debuting in the USA this year, he noted, with an estimated 101 on the road by 2021. Musk took charge of production management himself last week in an effort to ramp up production. Hopefully, he can pull it off, because having Tesla around, if nothing else, has frightened other automakers into stepping up their electric vehicle game, and that's good for all of us.
