The research also acknowledges the role of Tesla’s unique products towards the impressive market cap. According to the report: “Tesla cars have contributed to its high market capitalisation. Its business model in recent years is said to have been attractive to investors.

”The company has transformed from regularly missing delivery targets and production milestones to over-delivering on various fronts.”

Tesla’s market dominance is, however, said to be challenged by traditional automakers which are setting up battery-car outlets.
