Tesla Model 3 demand ‘looks very strong into 2019 and beyond,’ says Wall St analyst



Tesla shares (NASDAQ:TSLA) are showing some signs of recovery on Wednesday, as the Model 3’s need received a favorable perspective from Wall Street. At a recent view, Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives stated that “underlying drivers” for the EV economy would probably encourage customers to buy Tesla’s most affordable electric sedan, despite the attention of other carmakers on larger vehicles such as SUVs.

“Demand for Tesla’s Model 3 midsize electric sedan appears very powerful into 2019 and outside,” the analyst wrote.

Ives noted that the strong need for its Model 3 will probably lessen the company’s need to boost funds again in the not too distant future. Tesla’s need for a capital raise was a significant point of concern for the company’s critics, and it’s been a particularly notable subject for Elon Musk as well. In his appearance at the Recode Decode podcast, for example, Musk said that he considers Tesla can remain cash-flow positive mainly by selling its vehicles such as the Model 3. As for the Wedbush Securities analyst,” he also anticipates Tesla to spend roughly $2.2 to 2.3 billion in the upcoming year.

Aside from the Model 3’s powerful need in 2019 and outside, Ives also highlighted that deliveries to Europe — a place that probably has a pent-up demand for the automobile — appear to be on schedule. The Wall Street analyst also said that China might well be a “big growth catalyst” after the company’s current cost adjustments that took effect in the nation.

The Tesla Model 3 has proven itself as a successful automobile in the United States and Canada. Over the duration of the calendar year, Tesla passed challenge after challenge as it ramped the production of the electric sedan. With Musk stating that it is not a significant deal for Tesla to generate 5,000 Model 3 a week at this point, though, the time appears to have finally come to start bringing the vehicle to additional niches.

This Q4, Tesla engaged in a somewhat assertive campaign boosting the Model 3 to Europe and Asia. In Europe alone, local press reports indicate that Tesla is currently preparing to send 3,000 Model 3 a week to the area starting February next year. Tesla has also begun laying the bases for its Model 3’s European autumn by starting the rollout of both Superchargers that are equipped with a Type two plug and a CCS plug. Images taken of these Superchargers indicate that they are marked specifically as “Model 3 Priority” stalls.

Back in China, Tesla is adopting an aggressive effort to push the Model 3 to its ever-growing electric vehicle industry. Just recently, Tesla adjusted the costs of its vehicles in China because of adjustments in export tariffs put on cars entering the Asian nation. Together with the cost adjustments in place, some of Tesla’s vehicles — particularly the Model 3 Performance — became competitively priced, even undercutting the costs of competitions such as the BMW M3.

As of writing, Tesla shares are currently trading up +.53% in $296.95.
