Tesla's cheap EV plans will likely be stuck in 'Tesla time'

Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk felt especially ambitious in the EV maker's first-quarter earnings call, weighing in on Tesla's timeline for an affordable EV and the outlook for developing its robotaxi service. Many on Wall Street are skeptical about Tesla's re-focusing on next-gen products while engaging in a price war in China through price cuts on its vehicles.

Tesla missed its first-quarter earnings estimates, posting $21.3 billion in revenue and adjusted gains of $0.45 per share.

Autoblog Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore joins Yahoo Finance to lay out the criticisms Tesla is facing after its most recent earnings, calling investments into robotaxis "the graveyard of where automakers go to, maybe not die, but waste a lot of money." Migliore also points out how efficiently and effectively traditional automakers would be at rolling out an affordable electric vehicle in the time that it takes for Tesla to develop and release its own.
