Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Toyota Drops Tesla Stock

  • Toyota Sold All Its Tesla Stock, And Plans To Ignite 2020 Games By Flying Car
  • Toyota has seemingly surrendered its entire stake in Tesla Motors Inc., concluding the two companies’ more than half-decade relationship.
  • A Toyota spokeswoman told Bloomberg that the sale signified the end of the companies’ dealings (at least for the present), which kicked off and into high gear in 2010.
  • As Bloomberg reported, Toyota bought into Tesla’s eco-driven operation for $50 million that year, and even sold its own disused factory in California to the younger automaker.
  • On May 31 Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a statement that he was getting serious about factory safety. The statement sounded like a heartfelt appeal for everyone to improve safety at the state-of-the-art Tesla automobile factory in Fremont, California.
  • Unfortunately, the statement was issued after it was made public that Tesla’s safety rates from 2014 to 2016 were poor.
  • Although some manufacturers voluntarily release this safety information, Tesla had not done so for the 2014-2016 period.
  • Now, Tesla has voluntarily released data for the first quarter of 2017, showing an improvement in the safety record that is now better than industry average.
