    Tesla calls claims of unintended acceleration in NHTSA petition 'completely false'

    Tesla also questions the validity of the petition, noting that it was submitted by a Tesla short-seller. Last week, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration said it would review a defect petition that cited 127 consumer complaints of alleged unintended acceleration of Tesla electric vehicles that may have contributed to or caused 110 crashes and 52 injuries.

    Tesla Slams Acceleration Petition Brought by ‘Short Seller’

    (Bloomberg) -- Tesla Inc. fired back against a petition filed with U.S. regulators, saying in a blog post Monday that it’s “completely false and was brought by a Tesla short seller.”The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is evaluating allegations that Tesla Inc. vehicles contain a defect that can cause sudden unintended acceleration, according to a notice posted on the agency’s website last week. The review was prompted by a petition asking the agency to open a defect investigation of some 500,000 Tesla vehicles over the alleged flaw. The petition cited 127 consumer complaints to the agency and claims of 110 crashes.The Palo Alto, California-based maker of electric vehicles said it investigates every incident where a driver “alleges to us that their vehicle accelerated contrary to their input.” In every case where Tesla had the vehicle’s data, it confirmed the car operated as designed, the carmaker said.“The car accelerates if, and only if, the driver told it to do so, and it slows or stops when the driver applies the brake,” Tesla said in the post.NHTSA, after a technical review, can either deny the petition or grant it and open a formal probe of the alleged issue. Any member of the public can petition NHTSA for a defect investigation, and many have been rejected by the agency.In October, NHTSA said it would evaluate a separate petition alleging that Tesla updated battery management software in response to a potential defect that could lead to fires.\--With assistance from Ryan Beene.To contact the reporter on this story: Dana Hull in San Francisco at dhull12@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Craig Trudell at ctrudell1@bloomberg.net, Pierre Paulden, Jonathan RoederFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Tesla moves a step closer to opening first European factory with German property deal

    U.S. electric car pioneer Tesla has agreed to buy a property on the outskirts of Berlin, bringing it a step closer to opening its first European factory, local authorities said on Sunday. The U.S. carmaker last November announced plans to build a giant factory in Gruenheide, in the eastern German state of Brandenburg, giving it the coveted "Made in Germany" label just as local rivals prepare to launch competing models. Tesla's board of directors approved a purchase agreement with the state of Brandenburg on Saturday to acquire a 300-hectare property, Brandenburg government spokesman Florian Engels said in a statement.

    Tax breaks for college tuition and medical expenses just came back from the dead — read this before filing your taxes

    The new legislation retroactively resurrects and/or extends a bunch of individual and business federal income tax breaks, which we will call the extenders. As its name indicates, the Act also includes a bevy of federal tax relief provisions for disaster victims. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) set the threshold for itemized medical expense deductions at 7.5% of adjusted gross income (AGI) for 2017 and 2018.

    Tesla Hits All-Time High Before Being Downgraded: Where to Now?

    What is the most shorted stock on Wall Street, you ask? Just beating out Apple for the top spot, it is Elon Musk’s Tesla (TSLA). $14.5 billion have been borrowed by investors in order to bet against the electric car manufacturer, apparently.The news is not very surprising as Tesla is one of the most polarizing companies out there. Hardly ever out of the headlines, most Wall Street observers have an opinion on what the future holds for the automobile industry disruptor.Earlier this week, Tesla notched an all-time high, closing Tuesday’s session at $537.92. The figure rounds out an extraordinary six months that has seen Tesla leave behind 2019’s initial troubles and virtually double its share price since the start of October. So, where is Tesla headed? This week, analysts have been throwing the hat in, offering takes on the electric vehicle company from all possible angles, with the most recent rating being a downgrade. In this article, we’ll take a look at three different ratings from the analysts.The SellRunning with the bears is Morgan Stanley’s Adam Jonas. Today, the 4-star analyst downgraded his rating on TSLA from Hold to Underweight, although he did raise his price target from $250 to $360. The new target implies downside of 29%. (To watch Jonas’ track record, click here)While acknowledging Tesla’s delivery beats and the progress of the company’s massive production facilities in China, Jonas believes Tesla’s recent surge is unsustainable. Jonas said, “Near-term momentum and sentiment around the stock is admittedly very strong, but we ultimately question the sustainability of the momentum… We believe the current share price discounts a fully ramped up China, Berlin and Model Y."The HoldSitting in the middle seat of the Tesla debate is Deutsche Bank’s Emmanuel Rosner. Rosner highlights Tesla’s recent 4Q19 vehicle delivery figures which beat consensus expectations across the board; In the fourth quarter, Tesla delivered 112,000 units, exceeding the Street’s estimate of 106,000 and totaling 367,000 for the whole year. The number is within the boundary of the company’s yearly guidance, which called for between 360,000 – 400,000 units. It also provides a 50% increase over 2018 figures.Rosner said, “We believe this new solid quarter of deliveries could further put to rest investor concerns around softening demand for Tesla’s product. While bears will likely argue 4Q deliveries benefited from strong purchases ahead of tax credits expiring in various countries, Tesla is just about to start deliveries of locally made Model 3s in the very large China market, at an attractive price point.”Bearing this in mind, Rosner kept his Hold rating on Tesla as is but bumped his price target up to $455 from the previous target of $290. The target, though, still implies downside of 11% over the next year. (To watch Rosner’s track record, click here)The Buy After Tesla’s stock hit a high point, is it time to sell? Not according to Jefferies’ Philippe Houchois, who believes Tesla is likely to start turning a profit this year and, therefore, selling at the present valuation will be a mistake. Houchois argues that present consensus estimates are “reasonable and conservative”, with Tesla standing to gain not only from car sales but also from products such as power storage and third-party battery sales. The company’s upcoming Q4 report in which it will lay out its financial plans for more factories and other capital-heavy costs will be “critical”, adds the analyst.So, what does it mean? It means Houchois kept his Buy rating but increased his price target to $600. The new target implies upside of 18%. (To watch Houchois’ track record, click here)The View from the StreetWhat does the rest of the Street make of Tesla’s prospects, then? 7 Buys, 7 Holds and 12 Sell ratings coalesce into a Hold consensus rating. The bears currently have the momentum, though, as the average price target comes in at $364.69 and indicates potential downside of 29%.

    'You're stealing our water': Germans protest against Tesla gigafactory

    Around 250 Germans on Saturday protested in the outskirts of Berlin where electric car startup Tesla is planning to build a gigafactory, saying its construction will endanger water supply and wildlife in the area. The U.S. carmaker announced plans last November to build its first European car factory in Gruenheide, in the eastern state of Brandenburg. Politicians, unions and industry groups have welcomed the move, saying it will bring jobs to the region, but environmental concerns drove hundreds of locals to the streets on Saturday.
