Tesla slides on murky outlook for fixing Model 3 production woes



New York (AFP) Nov 1, 2017
Tesla shares skidded Wednesday after offering only a murky timetable for fixing production "bottlenecks" for its Model 3, the vehicle aimed at broadening the appeal of the electric carmaker. Shares in Tesla, a longtime favorite of Wall Street, sank 4.7 percent in after-hours trade to $306.00 following its quarterly update, which also showed its net loss nearly doubled to $619 million - its largest deficit ever. Tesla has been under pressure to ramp up production of the Model 3, which at $35,000 ... read more
