Tesla announces new lower-cost Model 3; 4Q vehicle deliveries seen very strong says Morgan Stanley
Friday, 19 October 2018 Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk announced the release of a lower cost Model 3 while an investment bank said fourth quarter deliveries will probably run at a strong clip. Musk said the company will begin selling the mid-range version of the Tesla Model 3 at a price of $45,000, before savings knock it down to about $31,000, the company claimed. Costs $35k after federal & state tax rebates in California, but true cost of ownership is closer to $31k after gas savings — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 18, 2018 Tesla has the potential to issue an "extremely strong" guidance for vehicle deliveries in the fourth quarter of the year, a report by investment bank Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) said. Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas forecast in a research note to clients a 20% sequential improvement in Model 3 deliveries and sees them being heavily weighted to top-of-the-line mix. Given his understanding that the vast majority of Model 3 production is dual-motor, Jonas added that he would not be surprised to see average transaction prices for the Model 3 to approach $60,000 per unit or more.

He also believes Tesla will use the momentum to potentially tap the equity market and continues to forecast a $2.5 billion equity capital raise in 4Q. Jonas kept an Equal Weight rating on Tesla shares with a $291 price target. Tesla shares rose 1.17% in Friday's premarket to $267, having closed on Thursday 2.9% lower at $263.91.
