January 26th was the company’s worst day in 21 months. The 12% loss in stocks represents an $80 billion loss in market value.
SINCE THE YEAR’S START, TESLA’S MARKET CAPITALIZATION HAS FALLEN BY $210 BILLION.
The cause of the losses and slowed growth? According to Elon Musk…
Tesla’s competition in China.
BYD, backed by Warren Buffet, and other Chinese automobile makers have been giving Tesla a run for its money.
Musk has been cutting prices for Tesla vehicles to fight back against competition…
All while working on the launch of a new, cheaper vehicle model.
In the face of his car company’s losses, Elon has been keeping himself busy with his collection of businesses.
Just days after Tesla hit their worst performance…
