Elon Musk thinks Tesla (TSLA) can reach $4 trillion valuation

Elon Musk believes that Tesla (TSLA) can reach a $4 trillion valuation if they “knock the ball out of the park” a few times.

The CEO has often commented on the potential market capitalization of Tesla.

Most famously, he said that Tesla could be worth more than Apple and Saudi Aramco combined back in October 2022.

However, Tesla’s stock is down 4% since Musk made that comment last year. The NASDAQ is up 20% over the same period:

Lately, the stock has been frustrating Tesla investors with a 17% drop over just the last month.

Recently, Ron Baron, hedge fund manager and long-time Tesla investor, went on MarketWatch to reiterate his vision that Tesla would become a $4 trillion company.

He believes that Tesla will achieve that by becoming a battery company:

“In the case of Tesla, we are convinced that people cannot do what they’re doing and that, ultimately, it’s not just going to be a car company and it’s not just going to be a battery company. All the other car companies, which 50 years ago, elected to become much more profitable and outsource supplies and compute to other people. We’re going to be like Intel was inside of computers. This is going to be Tesla inside of cars. All the cars are going to be using Tesla autonomous driving. No one else can possibly compete.”

Musk commented on the idea that Tesla could become a $4 trillion company – agreeing, but adding that it would need to “knock the ball out of the park several times”:

“We do need to knock the ball out of the park several times to achieve that value, but I think we can.”

Tesla is currently valued at over $600 million.

Electrek’s Take

$4 trillion sounds ridiculous, and it very well might be, but most people said the same thing about Tesla being worth $100 billion, and it is worth $600 billion today.

But see, here’s the thing…

What holds Tesla back more than anything is Musk yammering about what could happen, and then it doesn’t. At some point even the hopeful lose hope. Try talking about what you WILL do. Then DO it.

Broken promises are not a good look. Talking big and then failing is something that’s supposed to be left behind in childhood. The mature are better at keeping their word.

As for knocking it out of the park, Tesla has certainly done it with the Model Y. The vehicle is as big of a success as it gets.

I assume that Musk means that Tesla will have to do that again with the next-generation vehicles and Full Self-Driving.

Those are big ifs.
