These ludicrously high valuations for Tesla based on a lack of anything tangible (in comparison to proper companies like Toyota or VWG with loads of cars on the road) just seem wrong to me, kind of like bitcoin. An over-inflated bubble.

You're probably right.

Tesla do have a range of other products that they could capitalise on - charging network for one, home energy solutions another.

Not sure it's worth that much difference though.

Now I've said that Tesla market cap will double!

A couple of weeks out of date certainly, but Tesla is still bizarrely high. All about anticipated earnings of course.

Tesla has an operating margin about twice that of VW/Ford etc despite much lower volumes. Given their sales growth and ambitions (pickups, smaller vehicles etc), and almost total lack of debt now, it’s pretty reasonable

Plus the infrastructure. I know a couple of Tesla owners.
They like the cars but can see their weaknesses and are open that others maybe just as good. But the charging network, that’s the bit that adds added value right now vs others.
