Tesla Should Not Have Lowered the Price of Autopilot Says Musk

  • Tesla Model Y SUV to be unveiled at 8.30 am tomorrow Heres what is expected

Once-prolific Twitter user Musk has dramatically reduced his volume of tweets, according to the filing, which argued that stopping him from mentioning Tesla even in insignificant tweets would risk trampling on his free speech rights. This comes days after the company reversed course on its decision to close most of its retail stores. The original closure decision caused controversy due to potential job losses. Now, Tesla is doing a full "about face" and will reinstate its normal prices for its vehicles, with the exception of the base price Model 3, on Monday. No other reproduction or distribution is permitted without prior written consent.

Tesla has enormous expectations for its Model Y. Citing the fact that the midsized SUV segment is the most popular vehicle type in numerous major markets Tesla operates in, Musk believes the Model Y will be produced in higher volumes than the Model 3, he said during the company's fourth-quarter earnings call. The most basic understanding that we have of this auto right now is that it is an SUV-version of the Tesla Model 3.

Tesla Inc Chief Executive Elon Musk shot back against United States securities regulators on Monday, arguing in a filing that his recent tweet about the electric vehicle maker's production volume did not violate his fraud settlement and he can not be held in contempt. The company claims that its new V3 Supercharger, once rolled-out extensively, will cut down the amount of time spent by customers on charging their vehicle by half. Most units sold globally should be built here, but reports assert that Tesla will also build its baby electric SUV at a new Gigafactory in Shanghai, China for the local market.

Tesla is still testing the updated charging station with select owners, and is breaking ground on the first public V3 Supercharger location next month.

Since last week the company has started accepting orders for the Model 3 that costs $35,000. This includes payments for store leases, galleries and real estate overseas.

First and foremost, the Model Y will be based on the same platform as the Model 3 sedan. Pro-Tesla blog electrek called the business model changes a "chaotic situation", saying it was "either turning into what feels like an extremely poorly managed, haphazard transition or it is intentionally made that way to push out employees like some are suspecting". Musk wrote that Tesla "will make around 500k [cars] in 2019", even though Tesla forecast making a maximum of 400,000 cars this year just a few weeks before.
