Tesla Beats Volkswagen and Becomes #2 Most Valuable Car Manufacturer

Tesla beats Germany’s Volkswagen to become the world’s second most valuable car manufacturer behind Japan’s Toyota, as of the meteoric rise in the U.S. electric car maker’s shares reshuffles the worldwide market.

Tesla’s inventory has over doubled in worth in the last three months, with its market capitalization piercing $100 billion Wednesday, a first for a listed U.S. auto manufacturer.

During the rally, its value has leapfrogged extra established global competitors: Honda, BMW, General Motors, and Daimler. On Wednesday, it eclipsed VW’s $99.4 billion value.

The current positive aspects have been fueled by a shock third-quarter profit, progress at a new manufacturing facility in China, and higher-than-anticipated automotive deliveries within the fourth quarter.

Many investors stay skeptical that Tesla can consistently ship profit, money flow, and development.

However, the gains mark growing confidence amongst investors about the way forward for electric automobiles and Tesla’s shift from a niche automotive maker into a worldwide chief in cleaner vehicles.
