Tesla’s extremely anticipated Battery Day, which has confronted a number of delays since its reveal a yr in the past, is lastly going down at 16:30 ET on Monday 21 September 2020.
CEO Elon Musk has promised that the occasion will likely be ‘big’, with ‘mind blowing’ battery know-how to be unveiled.
Under, we take a look at what analysts say traders can anticipate throughout the inaugural show-and-tell.
Battery Day: What are analysts saying?
Morgan Stanley analysts, who rated the Tesla stock ‘equal weight’ alongside a goal price of $272 a share – representing a draw back of 38.5% from 18 September 2020’s closing price of $442, mentioned their most important expectations embrace:
‘We are prepared for Tesla to target Terawatt scale battery capacity plans. Currently, we forecast Tesla to produce 439 GwH of batteries for their in-house production and 3rd party supply (combined) by 2030, accounting for just over a 26% share of the global EV battery market. Will Tesla target 1TwH by 2035?’
2. Greater battery manufacturing/manufacturing effectivity
‘With Maxwell, there would be theoretically a 16x production capacity increase by skipping the wet toxic chemicals to create the cathode, which then has to be dried and baked-off and needs a lot of floor space and ovens to meet that process.’
3. A doubling of vitality density
‘Battery density using the DBE system shows greater than 300 Wh/kg with a path to over 500 Wh/kg. By comparison, Tesla’s most advanced (2170) battery today is around 247 Wh/kg.’
The analysts additional famous that this suggests a possible 20% enlargement of present highest density, including that this might result in automobiles with considerably extra vary – and will doubtlessly push Tesla Model Three to about 400 miles per cost.
4. Improved battery life
‘Battery life also shows improved durability with almost 2x improvement as Elon Musk recently stated “…the car battery pack is around 3-to-5,000 miles, but the newly designed pack that will go into production for next year is design[ed] explicitly for a million miles of operation with minimum maintenance…’’
5. Goodbye Cobalt?
‘Tesla has been spending a great deal of effort on researching new chemistries themselves to reduce and remove cobalt from the mix.’

6. Decrease batter cell value
‘The prevailing view is that battery cell cost can decline at a compound rate of 6% to 7% from just over a $100/KwH level today. Could Tesla communicate plans to potentially double this rate of deflation or to target $50/KwH or less by mid or latter this decade?’
7. Tesla might emerge as a full-stack battery competitor
‘Overall, the market appears to be leaning towards Tesla being a faster moving partner with scale that expands the market for all, and investors are likely looking to reengage on existing battery makers post-battery day.’
Tesla is ‘trading at twice of its worth’, says investor
In the meantime, Ross Gerber, President and CEO of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Funding Administration, advised IG that he’s ‘expecting some big breakthroughs’ from the Tesla stock round Battery Day.
The self-proclaimed ‘long-term Tesla investor’ mentioned that whereas Tesla is a ‘high risk investment’, it’s now a ‘highly valued higher risk investment’.
When requested why the stock is so divisive between bulls and bears, Gerber mentioned that’s as a result of ‘Tesla is disrupting the energy and auto industry, and many of the analysts and people on Wall Street have been cosy with energy and autos for their entire careers’.
‘And these are huge trillion dollar industries that are being disrupted and basically destroyed by Tesla. So a lot of what you are seeing is pushback from the forces who don’t need to see Tesla achieve success,’ he added.
Nonetheless, Gerber admitted that Tesla is now ‘trading at about twice of what I think it’s worth’.
‘Now, it might be warranted but we’re in a bubble and we’re at the beginning stages of this bubble. And once they start to pull some of this back, the bubble bursts very quickly. So I caution tech investors when buying high priced technology stocks,’ he mentioned.
