Tesla’s $1.8B Bond Sale…Wait, I Though It Was $1.5B?

That news comes to us from Electrek, which has been reporting that Tesla’s less focused on the battery naming scheme for the more mainstream Model 3 and more on its actual range instead in order to appeal to a wider audience.

The electric vehicle maker revolves around constant iteration, but it also has to meet the expectations of customers who bought expensive add-ons assuming they’d eventually get full self-driving features.

Despite admitting his Gigafactory might not be able to keep up with supply, Musk has already confirmed a Model 3 Performance version will be available from mid-2018. That’s a significant slash compared with the Model S.

The e-car pioneer’s eventual goal is full Level 5 autonomy for all Tesla vehicles.

“Being in the public eye means having to explain yourself to so many people, so much of the time“, she wrote.

Heard also addressed the breakup in an Instagram post several days ago, saying that she and Musk “care deeply for one another and remain close”. It’s not clear if EVs follow exactly the same formula, and we’d expect some slush even between gasoline vehicles. So that if you buy it as soon as it crosses the line, it is nearly certain to show you a profit. “But I had the history of such movements to guide me”.

The debt pricing came amid a more than 1 percent drop this week in the iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG), which held gains of less than 1 percent for the year Friday, as geopolitical risks soured the appetite for risky assets.

We can easily imagine Tesla’s stock doubling in price over the next two-three years.

Tesla will need to raise more money in the future.

Tesla’s products have a captivating impact on consumers and shareholders alike. Tesla engenders optimism, freedom, defiance and a host of other emotions that in our view, other companies can not replicate. That roughly corresponds with when Tesla started to catch on as a baby name. Musk also said that he would be disappointed if they don’t bring the cost below $100 per kWh by the end of the decade. The session, which featured a gleaming blue Model 3 on display, was part of a four-day debt-marketing extravaganza, which included an invitation from Musk for investors to tour the company’s assembly plant.
