Hertz and Tesla deal is not confirmed yet
Elon Musk tweeted that the order isn't finalized yet
There is still no signed deal between Tesla and Hertz, who would have ordered 100,000 electric cars. This is what Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter last night.
Last week, Bloomberg reported, based on sources, that the US car rental company Hertz ordered 100,000 electric cars from Tesla as the first step in an ambitious plan to renew its fleet of rental cars. The order is the largest ever for electric cars and would account for 4.2 billion in sales for Tesla, Bloomberg wrote.
The Tesla stock went up. Last week, the stock thundered through the limit of $ 1,000 and a stock market value of $ 1,000 billion. The stock climbed another 8.5 percent to $ 1,209 on Monday, increasing its market capitalization by a sloppy $ 100 billion.
Top man Elon Musk responded to a tweet last night on Twitter with a steeply rising daily chart of the stock with the text ” your’e welcome!”, to be added. “If this is based on Hertz, I would like to stress that no contract has been signed yet.”
“Tesla is facing much more demand than production can handle, so we will only sell cars to Hertz at the same margins as consumers.”
“The Hertz deal has no effect on our figures,” said Musk.
