Tesla has had a difficult start to the year, with its stock market performance well below expectations, a situation that is unlikely to improve because of its delivery figures. Analysts, including Ben Callow of Robert W. Barrett, are forecasting a fall in sales for the second quarter running, despite a slight recovery from a traditionally weak first quarter. This trend is prompting experts to lower their estimates for the company for the rest of the year, especially after Tesla posted results well below analysts' forecasts.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk's repeated commitment to the development of robo-taxis, promising for the past five years that Tesla cars would soon be capable of operating entirely autonomously, has yet to materialise. This unfulfilled promise is fuelling scepticism about Tesla's ability to produce a fully autonomous vehicle, despite the high expectations placed on the technology.
