Is Goldman Sachs turning bullish on Tesla Motors?

with No Comments

According to Goldman, challengers have, for the most part, fallen woefully short of the Tesla S Sedan

Goldman Sachs has generated a chart that looks at purchase price and driving range for a number of EVs (see below).

Tesla_Golman_Sachs_Report_150331The only car projected to have a greater driving range then the S is the Audi Q8 e-tron and it will not be available until 2017.

The two EVs that promise to deliver good driving range (200 miles) at an affordable price ($35,000) are the Chevrolet Bolt and the Tesla Model 3.  Both cars are expected to be available in 2017.

This report is interesting because over the past 2 years Goldman Sachs has written a number of reports that have been somewhat negative about Tesla and bearish on its stock price.

What are your thoughts on Tesla and its competitors in the EV space?

  1. Is Tesla the clear leader today?
  2. Will the Audi Q8 be effective competition for the Tesla X SUV (see below)?
  3. Given the choice of a Chevy Bolt or a Tesla Model 3, which one would you buy?
