  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Tesla has announced price cuts in Germany and Singapore, following recent reductions in China and the United States. According to Reuters, the company has lowered prices on its Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in Europe, with Germany experiencing a 4.5% to 8% price decrease, and Singapore seeing a cut of between 4.3% and 5%. Despite these reductions, Tesla remains the global leader in electric vehicle (EV) sales, with a 17% market share. In addition to its strong presence in the United States, Tesla's success in China has contributed to its market dominance. Chinese automaker BYD is the closest competitor, particularly in China, with Volkswagen and General Motors also vying for market share. Tesla's first-quarter results will be announced next week, and it will be interesting to see if the company addresses how these price cuts may impact its guidance. However, it is unlikely that Tesla will lower its expectation of delivering 1.8 million vehicles this year. The Norwegian market, seen as a pioneer in EV adoption, provides insights into the future of the industry. Chinese automakers are making significant strides in China, driven by incentives from the government. In Europe, consumers are opting for lower-priced options, including Chinese brands, which are gaining market share in countries like the UK.
  • Subtitles section
  • Tesla with yet another price cut this morning.
  • It's the focus of today's tech check.
  • Phil Lebeau is back, having talked about Boeing, now here to talk some Tesla.
  • Hey, Phil.
  • Hey, Carl, not a surprise that we're seeing more price cuts from Tesla.
  • We've already seen them in China and the U.S. They're two largest markets.
  • Now we are seeing them in other parts of the world.
  • According to Reuters, they have decided to cut prices on the Model 3 and the Model Y in Europe.
  • Germany in particular, 4.5% to 8% cut in the prices there.
  • Singapore, a cut of between 4.3% and 5%. Remember, in terms of global EV sales, Tesla still leads the market.
  • I get this question all the time from people saying, well, yeah, they lead here in the U.S., but what about around the world?
  • Their strength in China, along with the U.S., helps them get 17% market share.
  • There you see BYD nipping at their heels, particularly in China, but also expanding in Europe.
  • And then VW and GM. As you take a look at shares of Tesla, keep in mind, we hear from them after the bell next Wednesday.
  • That is when they report their Q1 results.
  • Interesting to see whether or not they will say anything about how these price cuts might impact their guidance, though I don't think we're going to see them lower their guidance from the expectation of delivering 1.8 million vehicles this year.
  • Phil, I wonder, I thought of you because Adam Jonas and Morgan Stanley did a piece this week where he looked at the Norway market, which is, in their view, about a dozen years ahead of us in terms of EVs.
  • And one of the arguments they made was that, yeah, Tesla's made a lot of inroads into a more mature environment, but those Chinese automakers also are making a stand.
  • You know, the Chinese automakers are extremely aggressive, obviously, in their home market, and they've got some advantages there in terms of incentives from the government.
  • Then you look at what's happening in Europe.
  • I've talked with people who are active within the auto market in Europe, and they make a point of saying you would think that people would say, well, boy, I'm going to buy Tesla or I'm going to buy a European brand in terms of an electric vehicle,
  • Not a Chinese brand.
  • Uh-uh.
  • If the price is low, those consumers are no different than anywhere else.
  • And especially in the U.K., that's where you're seeing the Chinese automakers become very aggressive, and it's impacting sales.
  • They are picking up market share, not a lot, but they are starting to pick up market share.
