Tesla Stock Price Rose Despite Expected Weak EV Deliveries

On Monday, Tesla shares increased despite its June-quarter deliveries, which are anticipated to drop, making it its second consecutive decline.

The company rose by 6.05% to $209.86 apiece on July 01. However, it is expected to fall in the premarket session by -0.87% to $208.03 per share.

While it faces stiff competition in China and weak demand amid affordability concerns, its electric vehicle (EV) deliveries will likely slump.

In May, Tesla’s sales in Europe dropped 36.00%. The weak data was driven by waning EV subsidies and low demand from fleet operators.

According to reports, the automaker aims to appease some European leasing firms following its repeated retail price cuts. The continuous slashes damaged their fleet’s value, slowed service, and caused expensive repairs to affect their corporate customers.

Moreover, the Elon Musk-owned firm has been trailing behind in providing new designs to the market.

Tesla started its Cybertrucks deliveries late last year without Musk’s expectations of its mass production until 2025. Also, the EV maker let go of its objective to deliver 20 million vehicles by 2030, touting its 50.00% long-term annual growth target

Meanwhile, Wells Fargo included the company in its Tactical Ideas list, which compiles stocks that potentially have a significant upside soon. However, it was rated as underweight in the list.

BYD Reports EV Sales Jump, Closing the Gap with Tesla

China’s BYD announced a 21.00% increase in second-quarter EV sales, almost reaching Tesla. In the first quarter, it returned the title of the top EV vendor globally to its US rival.

Analysts say the Chinese company’s sales are around 12,000 vehicles less than the Musk-owned firm’s expected deliveries.

On the other hand, Barclays predicted an 11.00% decline in Tesla’s Q2 EV shipments.

Additionally, BYD maintained stable growth in EV sales, while startups like Nio reported significant growth, with over double its vehicle deliveries.
