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."
