Despite the fact that the company “shot” with the new “affordable” Model 3, sales of electric cars are falling. This is due to overpriced, and significantly affects the company itself, which had to reduce staff.

Tesla company is again at the hearing. At this time, information became available on the reduction of 65% of employees from the car delivery unit. Of the 230 people in the staff left 80 employees. Information already confirmed by the employees of this department. Analysts are confident that this is due to the fall in demand for the new model, despite the fact that 145,610 Model 3 copies for 2018 have already been sold.

When the model was announced, a price tag of $ 35,000 was promised for the base modification, but there is still no such price. Therefore, the majority of potential customers, as well as those who have made a preliminary order, are waiting for the cheapest version, the rest have already bought their car. So far, there is no official information on the timing of the arrival of the model in the most accessible version, but it is expected that it will be presented in the summer.

If the company manages to fulfill its promise, it will solve most of its financial problems and ensure a sharp increase in stocks. In the meantime, Tesla is again in danger of bankruptcy due to the necessary loan payment.

Meanwhile, Tesla began the first deliveries of Model 3 to Europe. The first batch of electric cars from the “affordable” segment came on the ship from California to the Belgian port of Zeebrugge. Another delivery is expected soon.
