In a note dated August 13, Credit Suisse analyst Daniel Galves initiated coverage of Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) with an Outperform rating and a $324.93.

"Electric vehicles are inherently better than Internal Combustion (ICE) vehicles," said Galves. "If Tesla can get to cost-parity with ICE and still offer $1,400-$2,500 per year fuel savings to the consumer, it won't be a fair fight."

Galves believes Tesla is in fact on the road to cost parity. He noted that the Gigafactory is a "major step" in that direction and says battery costs for the Model S and X could come down to the $10,000-11,000 level with the battery costs for the Model 3 as low as $7,500.
