Elon Musk still does not understand that every time he opens his mouth he damages Tesla. This time, in addition to the comments of Musk, the launch of the new electric Mercedes-Benz negatively affected the evaluation of Tesla values


"SAN FRANCISCO — Tesla's stock and bond prices dropped on Wednesday after Chief Executive Elon Musk renewed an attack on a British caver whom he had previously insulted on social media, and a day after Mercedes unveiled a challenge to the electric car maker.
The stock dropped 2.8 percent to $280.74, the lowest level since late May, following a 4.2 percent decline on Tuesday after Mercedes introduced its fully electric EQC crossover in Stockholm.
The $1.8 billion high-yield bond Tesla issued a year ago hit a record low price on Wednesday. It also became more expensive to insure Tesla's bonds against default."

Re: 2021 Mercedes Benz EQC

Yes I too believe the traditional sedans that we've known for decades are on life support. However, isn't this new EQC just a raised sedan? So many of these "coupe" CUV/SUVs that are so popular today look like a sedan IMHO. I just don't get the attraction. (sorry Germany...)

Higher seating position, (usually) more cargo room and/or larger cargo openings (hatch/liftgate vs. trunk lid).

The reality is, we're just going back to the 30s where everything was a 2 box form, and it'll be this way for a while before it likely swings back (barring AV takeovers).....the whole what's old is new thing.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior
