What’s going on? Are there any fundamental reasons for such an increase in price? Analysts point out that on one hand, Elon Musk got “more civilized”. He restrained from provocative tweets that where always fuelling Tesla shorters. He also focused more on controlling the company’s costs (operating costs down 7% in 2019), as well as fixed the company’s pricing. First, the popular-democratic side of Elon Musk pressured selling Tesla Model 3 to the mass customer for $35,000. Recently the company pivoted to focus on the high-end version costing $70,000.
