This is part one of a two-part series on what a difference a year makes. We will discuss the significant difference that a year can make in the automotive industry, particularly for Tesla in terms of their valuation, status, buyer confidence, and customer satisfaction.
In part one of this series, we will be focusing on Tesla and Elon Musk. As we are only a few weeks into the new year of 2023, there are already significant developments happening in the industry, particularly with Tesla. The company is showing signs of erosion, both in terms of value and market share, as well as the overall positive perception it once held in the electric vehicle (EV) market.
It is important to acknowledge the major impact that Tesla and Elon Musk have had on making EVs viable and popular. Tesla has been the global market leader since its inception, selling roughly 1.3 million units last year alone. They currently hold a 65% market share, which would be unheard of for any other brand in the car industry. However, as more and more EV models become available, the market share for Tesla is starting to erode.
Companies such as Ford, Hyundai, and Kia are making their mark in the EV market, and their market share is increasing. In just two years, Tesla’s market share has dropped from nearly 80% to 65%. This is a significant 21% drop, and projections show that this trend will continue as more and more EV options become available.
Another notable development in the industry is Tesla’s recent decision to slash prices on their models. This is unusual, as Tesla has traditionally sold their vehicles at full sticker price. This change in strategy is similar to Apple’s decision to slash prices on the iPhone 15 years after its initial release, and it may indicate that Tesla is struggling to maintain its dominant position in the EV market.
The developments in the EV market, particularly with Tesla, reveal the ever-changing nature of the industry. As more options become available, the market share and value of companies will continue to shift. It will be interesting to see how these changes will affect the industry as a whole in the coming months and years. Stay tuned for part two of this series where we will delve deeper into these developments and their implications for the industry.
