Not for long, I suspect the agreement with Panasonic is just a stop-gap.
Interesting how volatile this stock is - opinions seem to vary wildly on whether Tesla will survive. I think if they get through this year, they’ll be pretty difficult for established car makers to beat, mostly because of Musk’s attitude to established industrial practice (proven out at spacex) - it’s most definitely not business as usual, and is taking very big risks and will continue to do so, but I’d be surprised if Musk lets it fail at this point.
Tesla stock is on sale at the moment - down 12% in the last day
This is a really good question. I haven’t owned a car for decades - if you live in a large city there is little need, and the population will be moving to cities. I suspect other markets like China and India though will prove lucrative for some time with an emerging middle class, and of course everyone will use transport, it’s just a question of who owns it (perhaps car companies will eventually become transportation companies and lease out or even manage taxi fleets).
