Tesla Motors’ Model S Deliveries In USA

During the first quarter of 2013, Tesla delivered 4,750 Model S vehicles in the United States. The company is outperforming sales of German luxury cars  such as Mercedes and BMW.

According to Kallo, Gen III is within sight despite the absence of a great technological breakthrough and emphasized that it prevailed in a majority of the bear cases.

In a note to investors, Kallo wrote, “Based on its technology foundation, Tesla has emerged as the electric leader and continues to build its brand-value. We think Model S accolades, go-to market strategy, and infrastructure rollout boost brand value.”

He also noted that Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has a leading position within the industry in terms of battery costs. He expects the price to reduce further as innovations in lithium-ion technology become widespread.

He projected that demand for the company’s Model S vehicle will double. He estimates that Tesla’s production for the Model S and Model X vehicles will increase from 40,000-50,000 units to around 80,000 to 100,000 units early next year.

Kallo maintained its outperform rating for shares of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) and raised its price target to $118.
