Musk and Tesla – level 1

05-04-2024 07:00

A study says that fewer people in the US want a Tesla car now. One reason is Elon Musk.

Elon Musk is the boss of Tesla. Some people do not like him. People do not agree with things which he says. Tesla sells well in the past. But it may change soon. People are not so much interested in Tesla these days. For many people, Tesla is Elon Musk. They now think about buying cars from other companies like Mercedes, BMW, and Audi.

Experts say that Musk hurts Tesla’s sales. The company has also problems with money and with carmakers from China.

Difficult words: hurt (to have a bad impact on someone or something), sale (when a company sells things).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What could be causing the decrease in interest for Tesla cars and how is Elon Musk's influence playing a role in this shift?
