Elon Musk: There is not a demand problem for the Tesla Model 3

Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s opening comments at the annual shareholder’s meeting went straight to a question that has been looming over the automaker since it reported wider-than-expected losses and a one-third drop in deliveries in the first quarter: demand.

“We get this question a lot. I want to be clear, there is not a demand problem,” Musk said.

But he didn’t stop there. Musk quickly added that sales have far exceeded production. “Production has been pretty good,” Musk said. “So Tesla has a decent shot at a record quarter on every level — if not, it’s going to be very close.”

Tesla reported in April that it delivered 63,000 of its electric vehicles in the first quarter of the year, nearly a one-third drop from the previous quarter. Tesla cautioned, at the time, that it expected first-quarter profits would be negatively impacted by lower than expected delivery volumes and several pricing adjustments.

And that proved out, when just a few weeks later Tesla reported wider than expected loss of $702 million, or $4.10 a share.

Tesla blamed the striking difference in numbers on its efforts to increase deliveries of its Model 3 electric car in Europe and China, which was fraught with challenges and caused delays.

But the losses and lower delivery number prompted widespread speculation that Tesla had what looked like a demand issue, a problem it had never experienced before.

Musk tried to quell those concerns during the shareholder’s meeting Tuesday in Mountain View, Calif. He said that 90% of the new orders are coming from non-reservation holders and that 63% of its trade-ins are from non-premium categories. “Which means people are trading up to buy the Model 3,” he added.

Elon Musk calls it ‘financially insane’ to buy a car that isn’t an EV capable of full self-driving

During the Tesla Annual Shareholder Meeting that took place on Tuesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk didn’t mince words when he talked about what he thinks of the value proposition of traditional fossil fuel vehicles. He called it “financially insane” to buy any car that isn’t an electric car capable of full autonomy — which, conveniently, currently is the type of vehicle that only Tesla claims to sell.

Musk reiterated a claim he’s made previously about Tesla vehicles, that all of its cars manufactured since October 2016 have everything they need to become fully autonomous — with those built before the release of its new autonomous in-car computer earlier this year needing only a computer swap, replacing the new Tesla-built computer for the Nvidia ones they shipped with.

The Tesla CEO also reiterated his claim from earlier this year that there will be 1 million robotaxis on the road as of next year, noting that it’s easy to arrive at that number if you consider that it includes all Teslas, including Model X, Model S and Model 3 sold between October 2016 and today.

Regarding Tesla’s progress with self-driving, Musk noted that by end of year, Tesla hopes to deliver autonomy such that while you’ll still have to supervise the driving in-car, it’ll get you from your garage to your workplace without intervention. He said that by next year, their goal is the same thing but without requiring supervision, and then some time after that, pending regulatory cooperation, they’ll be able to do full autonomy without anyone on board.

Musk ended this musing with a colorful metaphor, likening buying a car that’s powered by traditional fossil fuel and without any path to self-driving to someone today “riding a horse and using a flip phone.”

States are looking to jam T-Mobile and Sprint’s proposed $26.5 billion merger

A number of  states have filed a lawsuit to block the proposed $26.5 billion merger of T-Mobile and Sprint.

The lawsuitm, filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that the merger of Sprint and T-Mobile would be anti-competitive and drive up costs for consumers.

“When it comes to corporate power, bigger isn’t always better,� said James, in a statement. “The T-Mobile and Sprint merger would not only cause irreparable harm to mobile subscribers nationwide by cutting access to affordable, reliable wireless service for millions of Americans, but would particularly affect lower-income and minority communities here in New York and in urban areas across the country.�

T-Mobile and Sprint represent the third and fourth largest carriers in the country behind Verizon Wireless (which owns TechCrunch) and AT&T.

While prices for mobile services have fallen by 28 percent over the last decade, the attorneys general fear that greater consolidation would diminish customer competition.

Sprint and T-Mobile have not yet responded to a request for comment.

In the past, the two companies have argued that their combined networks would enable a faster and better rollout of 5G wireless services — the new high-speed networks that every mobile operator are touting as the next big technological advancement.

Indeed, the U.S. and China are currently in a bit of a race for dominance in 5G connectivity. The competition is at the heart of trade disputes and the blacklisting of China’s telecom and technology giant Huawei within the U.S.

Critics contend that the merger would create another mobile behemoth whose prices could prove to be less competitive — and unfair trade-off for increased connectivity in the eyes of lawmakers.

There’s another reason why plaintiffs are hoping to halt the merger in its tracks and that’s the impact it could have on employment.

The consolidation of Sprint and T-Mobile would undoubtedly shutter hundreds of retail locations and slash service and repair jobs around the country — a primary source of employment for hundreds of Americans.

“CWA applauds the Attorneys General and especially General Letitia James’ leadership in taking decisive action today to prevent T-Mobile and Sprint from gaining anti-competitive power at the expense of workers, customers, and communities,” added Chris Shelton, president of the Communications Workers of America (CWA), in a statement. “Reducing the number of national wireless carriers from four to three would mean higher prices for consumers, job loss for retail wireless workers, and downward pressure on all wireless workers’ wages. The states’ action today is a welcome development for American workers and consumers, and a reminder that regulators must take labor market concerns seriously when evaluating mergers.â€�

T-Mobile, a subsidiary of the German telecommunications company, Deutsche Telekom, currently has more than 79 million subscribers, while the SoftBank Group-owned Sprint Corp. currently has more than 54 million subscribers.
