TESLA Stock Retreat On NHTSA Investigation

Tesla stock started lower the session after news that National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that it is investigating failures in 2012 through 2015 Tesla Model S. The Safety-agency has received 11 complaints about the screens the last 13 months in cars that have been in use from 3.9 to 6.3 years. If the screens fail, the Tesla cars will lose the rear camera display, causing low visibility.

Tesla stock continues the correction from all-time highs at 1027.48 that hit on June 10th. Analysts now expect that the car sales would plunge in the second quarter and the drop in demand will continue until the end of the year amid the coronavirus crisis.

Tesla valuation is extremely demanding at the current price as it is more than double than the valuation of Volkswagen, which sold 10 million vehicles in 2019; Tesla sold only 365,000 cars.

Tesla bulls betting on Cybertruck as a positive catalyst for 2022 and expect the announcement for the location of the new factory, with expectations pointing that the new factory would deliver 175k to 200k Cybertrucks.
