Is the "new force" of car building an opponent of Tesla?
New energy electric vehicle manufacturers became a big hit in the secondary market in November.
In the United States, news of Biden’s victory came, and the Dow Jones Industrials Index hit 30,000 points, the first time in history. In particular, the investors of electric car manufacturers are excited because he proposed several policies aimed at accelerating the transition to electric cars during his campaign, including providing operating funds for 500,000 charging piles and taxation to buyers Credits and funding for research and development.
From this, Tesla has made the most profit. Since December, since the S&P 500 Index Committee decided to include Tesla in the closely watched index, stock prices have surged and currency volumes have increased significantly.
On the western coast of the Pacific, the State Council announced in early November that the sales of electric, plug-in hybrid and hydrogen vehicles in China would increase from 5% to about 20% by 2025. The blueprint of the Chinese Society of Automotive Engineers and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is more optimistic. By 2035, hybrid and new energy will account for half of the total sales of new cars.
With this good news, we can often see in the US stock market that the stock prices of the “new forces” making cars go hand in hand with Tesla. In the past month, have new energy sources pet child Tesla's performance was not as good to Wei, Xiao-Peng and ideal car , the "new forces" minimum share price nearly doubled, soaring more than 220% is the highest, while Tesla's increase was only 35%.
Although Weilai Automobile was short-selling by Citron after the announcement of the financial report, this did not affect Weilai's actual performance in the secondary market. What surprised the author is that Tesla, which once relied on pioneering spirit and bright future, has fallen behind in the industry it dominates. Compared to its Chinese counterparts, Tesla is underestimated.
Tesla is better than Weilai in terms of growth and profitability. When we choose to invest in the electric car industry, isn't we pursuing growth? Some people may say that Tesla's profits are currently generated through the sale of regulatory credits, but this is indeed not something Chinese electric car manufacturers like.
From another data point of view, the price-to-sales ratio of the "new forces" in the past twelve months has exceeded 30 times, while Tesla's P/E ratio is only 18 times. Most importantly, Tesla is generating billions of dollars in cash from its operations, and the "new forces" are still in the process of burning money.
But now the "new forces" have a way to defeat Tesla, that is, the capital behind it. As the leader, Weilai has a 16.3% stake in Tencent Holdings; Alibaba has a 14% stake in Xiaopeng, and Meituan is the second largest shareholder of Ideal Auto.
In addition, the support of government agencies is also an incentive for the rapid development of new energy vehicles. Weilai has Hefei, Xiaopeng has Guangzhou and so on.
Even so, we can only think that the "new forces" may have a stronger growth rate, but the bottleneck lies in technology, and most of this technology is owned or even monopolized by Tesla. With a strong brand awareness, Tesla's economies of scale and technology ensure that its profits exceed its competitors.
Of course, Tesla also has problems. "It has become a Chinese company" is the direction that Tesla is currently discussing more, and Musk may lose control of Tesla in China.
The matter of building a car has changed. Since 2014, building a car has become the most desirable thing for entrepreneurs. Not only are successful entrepreneurs working hard to start their second and third ventures, but countless "grassroots" teams have also begun to move around, as if the threshold of building a car was suddenly pulled to non-existent. But facts have proved that there are indeed barriers to building cars, and it limits most players. Li Bin, the founder and chairman of Weilai Automobile , once said that an electric car company needs at least 20 billion yuan to reach mass production. Xiaopeng Motors Chairman He Xiaopeng also sighed: "It used to be an exaggeration to see others making cars. I jumped in and realized that 20 billion is not enough to spend.” In the end, the new car-building forces ran out of three first-tier players, but at the same time it also made people realize how difficult it is for a new company to build cars. People's attit
The news of the newly redesigned 2021 Tesla Model S was suddenly mentioned by Musk at the beginning of the year. Everyone was pleased with the Model S that had not been updated for a long time. However, when the pictures came to light later, everyone found that the change didn't feel much, and there was almost no change in appearance. Tony teachers just repaired it and it was over. However, after the interior was exposed, everyone found that it seemed like a new generation without looking at the exterior, which was shocking. Many people still don't believe that this is the real car, so today Musk will give you an official announcement. Currently the fastest mass-produced electric car Today, Tesla officially released Model S Plaid, and it was also a delivery ceremony. Excited Musk specifically brushed a track out of the Fremont factory , and then drove directly to the stage. Two days ago, Musk just announced the cancellation of the Plaid+ version. The reason was that
New energy is the trend of automobiles, and the sinking market is the vast world of new energy automobiles. However, for many new energy vehicle brands, there is still a long and rugged mountain road to go before they truly reach the "willows and flowers in another village". New energy vehicles are accelerating toward the sinking market, looking for new incremental space. However, for more new energy vehicle brands, how to break the dilemma of low prices in the sinking market, increase the added value of products, and obtain more profits in addition to the increase in sales are long-term problems that need to be faced. On the other hand, after Baidu , Xiaomi also intends to enter the game. Traditional car companies continue to launch new new energy brands, and more and more players are entering the game. In 2020, the power of new cars will usher in strong growth, and Tesla will also achieve sales of over 100,000 vehicles in the Chinese market. Many high-end brand new
