Editor's Welcome 

In this week's news Tesla announced a new leasing program via US Bank that lowers lease payments by up to 25% compared to Tesla's previous leasing program and Elon tweeted to counter some FUD against Tesla's sales/demand numbers (see below). Remember, Tesla's Q3 earnings is next week on Nov 5th.

Wall Street Journal's misleading articles starts drama

The volatility around TSLA continued this week as the Wall Street Journal claimed "Through September, Tesla sold 10,335 Model S sedans in its home market, down 26% compared with the same period in 2013. The U.S. decline has come even as the company’s U.S. production increased 10% during the same period, according to WardsAuto."

Elon Musk tweeted to counter the WSJ's claim. Elon noted, "Article in @WSJ re Tesla sales is incorrect. September was a record high WW and up 65% year-over-year in North America." "Also, lease price improvement is due to US Bank deal. It is not a discount. Revenue to Tesla is unchanged."
