Shares of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) were up 1% premarket to trade at $1500 extending yesterday’s gains on news that the EV manufacturer was planning to open new stores and sales centres.
The move is a stark departure from the company’s earlier plans to shutter all of the company’s current stores and shift entirely to online sales as outlined by Elon Musk slightly over a year ago.
Elektrek, which reported on the above change in strategy, also added that Tesla could make a smaller Cybertruck for Europe citing Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO.
