Electric vehicle industry leader Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) finally rebounded from its earnings report on Monday, as the stock rose 4.69% during Thursday trading. The rise comes on some analyst upgrades including key remarks from Morgan Stanley which reiterated its overweight rating with a $900 price target. Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas mused that Tesla now has such strong pricing power in the industry, that it could theoretically introduce vehicles as cheap as $20,000 by the year 2023, which would boost its market share even more.
NIO price prediction
Nio’s domestic rival XPeng (NYSE:XPEV) recently released a refreshed version of its popular compact SUV, the G3. This was the first electric vehicle ever released by XPeng, and is a direct competitor to Nio’s new ES3 vehicle, Li Auto’s (NASDAQ:LI) Li Xiang ONE, and of course the Tesla Model Y. Nio’s ES3 joins the ES6 and ES8 versions, which are larger, but rounds out Nio’s lineup as the domestic leader in electric SUVs.
