UBS analysts: Tesla Model 3 is unprofitableAugust 27, 2018
Just a week ago we reported that the American company Tesla significantly increased the production of electric cars Model 3, on which it makes a bid. But, analysts write, in the production of this model, the company suffers losses.
According to the analytical portal Consumeraffairs with reference to the report of analysts of the investment bank UBS, the California company suffers losses in the amount of $ 5,900 with each sold Tesla Model 3. It’s just an electric car in the basic modification, the cost of which in the US is 35,000 dollars. It is also reported that in general, if we take into account the more expensive equipment, Tesla earns no more than 30% of its value for Model 3.
As for the quality of production, it is below the average: the owners of Model 3 can detect too large gaps between the interior elements, missing bolts, as well as poorly made welds. As for noise insulation, it is rated as “acceptable”. Do not add bonuses to the piggy bank and the fact that at the moment most of the service stations will not be able to competently service this car.
It is also interesting to see how difficult the owners of Model 3. According to analysts, the car breaks the door handles and there are problems with the onboard computer. As a result of which the Model 3 may be completely unable to move.
However, as a result, the model got a good rating, and UBS analysts are sure that thanks to it Tesla is ahead of other manufacturers of electric cars – Chevrolet and BMW.
However, despite the emerging troubles, the owners of Model 3 receive a high level of satisfaction from its operation.
