Shave huge sums of money

Tesla is having a strong year in 2023, with its stock price nearly doubling over the past year, according to Bloomberg.

However, the company has now seen its heaviest start to the new year on record.

Bloomberg wrote last week that the electric car maker's market value has fallen by more than $94 billion, equivalent to 971 billion kroner, so far this year.

At the time of writing, the company was valued at just over $651 billion, equivalent to NOK 6,810 billion.

The decline in value comes after, among other things, a slowdown in the growth of demand for electric vehicles.

Tesla first warned of slowing demand for electric vehicles in its third-quarter results report last year, Bloomberg writes.
