Tesla share: Morgan Stanley raises its price target

Morgan Stanley on Sunday raised its price target for Tesla to $ 1,200 from $ 900. In a note to customers, Adam Jonas highlights Tesla’s better-than-expected third quarter results, despite chip shortages.

Jonas says he expects Tesla manufacturing to step up a gear in the coming years as its Austin and Berlin factories come online.

“By 2030, we are increasing our unit forecast from 5.8 million to 8.1 million,” he wrote. This is due to the decline in ASPs and the significant expansion of factories worldwide, beyond Austin and Berlin, which we expect over the next decade, with India likely next to be ordered. of the day, ”he wrote.

However, many others have expressed doubts about Tesla’s expansion in India, given that country’s lack of infrastructure investment. The majority of Indian roads are unsuitable for Tesla driving.

Jonas also wrote that he expects the company “to invest cost savings and efficiencies in product pricing and capacity as leverage to drive revenue growth.” .

FSD deployment hits a major slowdown

Meanwhile, Tesla has had a bumpy rollout of its latest software update for fully autonomous driving. FSD 10.3 was supposed to be available on Friday for drivers with safety scores of 99/100 or better.

But on Saturday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the post would be delayed until Sunday, due to “regression in some left turns at traffic lights.”

Then on Sunday, when Tesla drivers flooded Twitter with even worse issues, including emergency braking for no apparent reason at high speeds on the freeway, Musk tweeted that the deployment would be halted.

He tweeted, “Seeing some issues with 10.3, so going back to 10.2 temporarily. However, some Tesla owners seemed to say the rollback was not to 10.2 but to a production version with no FSD beta at all.

On Monday morning, Musk tweeted that Tesla was deploying FSD Beta 10.3.1.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating 12 crashes in which Tesla vehicles with autopilot engaged collided with emergency vehicles at the crash scene.

Tesla partially responded to a request for information from the agency due on October 22. At the same time, Tesla has made a broad request for confidentiality, according to a letter sent to NHTSA.

If the request is granted, the public would be largely left in the dark about the agency’s investigation into the safety of Tesla’s autopilot. NHTSA asked Tesla why it hadn’t issued a recall when it learned of major issues that required a software update.
