Die Verhandlungen, wann und wie Tesla sein Werk in Kalifornien wieder hochfahren darf, dauerten Firmenchef Musk offenbar zu lange. Seit heute läuft die Produktion wieder – entgegen aller Corona-Verbote.
FREMONT, Calif. — Tesla’s Elon Musk is in a showdown with California officials over the reopening of a major factory, one of the most prominent examples of a powerful business defying health orders that require all but essential activities to cease.
Musk continued to ramp up production at the company’s Fremont facilities Tuesday, where the company produces its Model 3 and Model Y electric vehicles.
„If somebody wants to stay in their house, that’s great and they should be able to,“ he said. „But to say they cannot leave their house and that they will be arrested if they do: that’s fascist. That is not democratic; this is not freedom. Give people back their goddamn freedom.“
“The expansion of shelter-in-place, or as we call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes, against all their constitutional rights, is, in my opinion, breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong, and not why people came to America and built this country,” Musk said. “What the fuck!”
Die „Crew Dragon“ der Raumfahrtfirma von Tech-Milliardär Elon Musk brachte zudem 180 Kilogramm Nachschub zur ISS.
„Over 150 engineers completed internships at factories in Europe, the UK, and Russia. They are working here in Kazakhstan, and we have created our third space system of scientific and technological importance. If all goes well, we will launch two satellites on a Falcon 9 launch vehicle in California on November 19. Alongside this, we will test all the developments of our engineers and designers in space,“ Marat Nurgorzhin said at the Digital Bridge International Innovation Forum in Astana.
Funds run by BlackRock Inc voted in favor of a recent shareholder proposal that would have required Tesla Inc to replace Elon Musk with an independent chairman.

The Fast Money traders discuss Tesla’s huge reversal today, ending the session higher after being down as much as 5 percent.
In August alone the entrepreneur has become the subject of an SEC investigation, made a dubious Twitter announcement about taking his company Tesla private, and gave a teary interview to the New York Times, causing Tesla shares to plummet.
Now it looks like the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund, the main candidate to take Tesla private, might actually invest in a Tesla rival instead.
(13-8.2018) I left the July 31st meeting with no question that a deal with the Saudi sovereign fund could be closed, and that it was just a matter of getting the process moving. This is why I referred to “funding secured” in the August 7th announcement.
(13.8.2018) However, Mr Musk said the managing director of the Saudi fund has expressed support since his tweets.
In the course of just under two weeks, J.P. Morgan’s Tesla analyst Ryan Brinkman increased his price target for Tesla from $195 to $308 and then reversed course back to $195 this morning, all while keeping an underweight rating.
Tesla has also claimed that its cars have a crash rate 3.7 times lower than average, but as we’ll see there’s little reason to think that has anything to do with Autopilot.
