Berlin Tesla Plant Plagued By Slow Sales, Staffing Shortages… “Complete Chaos”!

Is Tesla falling apart? Elon Musk’s dream company is becoming everything except sweet…

Electric cars are the technology of the future and by 2030, combustion engine cars won’t even be sold in some countries, we are told.

Reality collides with dream

Yet, the inconvenient economic and technical realities of electric cars refuse to go away: they’re expensive to acquire, maintain and operate, are harmful to the environment, difficult to recycle, have limited range and they are far from being CO2 neutral. In some regions, the CO2 breakeven point comes after the car’s lifetime expires.

So it’s little wonder Tesla is struggling with layoffs at its Berlin Gigafactory and sales are falling worldwide, reports Germany’s online Blackout News here.

According to an employee, there’s “complete chaos” at the Berlin plant, low motivation due to the poor working conditions, and 5,880 vacancies because of the plant’s difficulty attracting skilled workers.

Slow sales, large discounts

Moreover, Tesla sales figures are collapsing in China and other places globally. Already the company is offering customers in Germany high discounts to get rid of its growing stockpile of unsold cars.

“Tesla is offering a discount of up to 5,000 euros on the list price of existing vehicles on its website,” reports Blackout News “In addition, buyers are also to be allowed to fill up with free electricity for 10,000 kilometers at Tesla’s fast-charging stations.” The woes even lead Blackout News to speculate: “End of the Tesla hype in sight?”

Tesla stock loses

Tesla share price has “plummeted drastically in recent weeks due to the poor sales prospects” and Mr. Musk himself “has repeatedly sold his own Tesla shares worth billions.”

Others speculate that Musk’s acquisition of Twitter also may have rubbed a number of his customers the wrong way: Tesla drivers aren’t fans of free speech.

PS: HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY! Keep speaking up! Now more than ever is not the time to relent. The flawed bedrock of our enemies is cracking everywhere.

    Don’t forget my fellow modern moron slaves that the GOAL of the Secular Ruling Families & Billionaires is to PROTECT their Planet, and so in order to do that they need to reduce the number of vehicles that the herds of modern moron slaves have/use.

    A good solution to this is to BAN ICE vehicles and only sell costly EV’s that many will never be able to afford.

    Simple and without a direct focus on that one GOAL!

    I read that this plant is new and never fully functional. Elon announced this plant in November 2019.
    That was poor timing on host of things.

    I doubt Putin’s War was predictable at that point, but all the other issues with EVs have long been reported here and elsewhere.
    All that is surprising is the rapidity of the chaos.

    You’re a little slow on the draw Phil. ICE vehicles WILL be phased out; but they won’t be replaced by EVs (Tesla or otherwise) , for the reasons you mentioned.

    People will be forced to subscribe to erratic transport services, but mostly “travel on demand” will be a mode of the past. This is the face of “Net Zero Emissions”…. better known as the New Dark Ages.

    Wen permitted, 21st century serfs can walk or pedal from their landed estates. But these will be of dwindling numbers.

        NOT ALLOWED!

        They also shit and fart too much so BAD for net zero.
        And also they could be used to replace COW MEAT… Nah, forget horses.

    Alibaba manufactures a smaller truck that uses batteries to make it go. It is shipped in a box with square steel tubing to protect the electric vehicle. You have to piece some of the parts after you receive the vehicle and remove the box.

    It is called Chang Li Explorer.

    It has a range of 100 kilometers and the battery charges in 8 hours and more. It is an ideal vehicle for running errands near where you live. The EV does not cost an arm and a leg.

    The cost is 2000 dollars plus shipping and handling from China.

    Tesla can’t compete with that kind of EV.

      Those Chinese clown cars are fancy gold carts
      They are not legal on the streets in the US.
      Tesla is not competing with fancy golf carts

    Tesla’s share price has been in fantasyland for years. How could a company with a turnover the same as the profit made by General Motors be worth many times more? With lots of ‘green’ funds needing to buy stocks the demand was there – in addition to the virtue signallers – but ESG funds have lost 22% in 2022.

      What is really nuts is that Tesla has split it’s stock twice and so todays $123 US price is really 123 X 15 = 1845 and that is indeed “fantasy land” … wish I had bot some 😉 Note the peak of Tesla was 6,100 splits removed … just nuts.
      Tesla (TSLA) has 2 splits in our Tesla stock split history database. The first split for TSLA took place on August 31, 2020. This was a 5 for 1 split, meaning for each share of TSLA owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 5 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 5000 share position following the split. TSLA’s second split took place on August 25, 2022. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of TSLA owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 5000 share position pre-split, became a 15000 share position following the split.

        The TSLA stock price is irrelevant for the current condition of the company.
        Meanwhile, the stock sells at 33x trailing twelve months earnings.

        Ford is 5x.
        GM is 6x
        Toyota is 10x

        Tesla delivered 405,278 vehicles in the fourth quarter. That was a new record, but it was 6% below analysts’ estimates of 431,117.

        Elon Musk, by opposing censorship at Twitter, has upset his potential leftist Tesla customers. Leftists love censorship of opposing viewpoints.

        Tesla reliability (via Consumer Reports) was always bad, and now other manufacturers are offering new EV models too, hopefully more reliable than Teslas.

        Tesla has more competition now (if you really want an EV). And a lot more competition coming for 2026 models launched in late 2005.

    The mass manufacturers are now in on the act, they’ve got not just a decade or so, of experience in manufacturing vehicles, but a century.
    Plus, the cheapest Tesla in the UK sets us back £38k!
    A VW ID3, just squeaks inside £30k. Still a big chunk of change for most, but why spend 8 grand more?
