Meanwhile, Elon Musk, who will be stepping down as company chairman (but remain as CEO) following a US$20 million (RM83.2 million) fine by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), has over 23.1 million followers on Twitter.

On the business side of things, Tesla has recently secured a land in China to build its first Gigafactory outside of US soil. The 860,000 square metre plot of real estate costs US$2 billion (RM8.32 billion), and the facility is reportedly capable of producing 500,000 Tesla cars annually.

      Hello Not Toyota Fan,

      If this is true, “Tesla can’t even deliver on schedule. “ Are you saying buyers have to be dumb enough to place an order and can’t cancel? Demand and supply, it’s just basic economics.

      Please look up online Tesla (TSLA) is the most “shorted” stock. It means people makes money when stock goes down.

      I believe in climate change, unlike current administration in US. Electric vehicle is the most viable option at this time. Hydrogen is heavily invested by Toyota but the technology is not there yet.

      Even you are not a believer, do you really like the smell of exhaust when you start your car every morning?
