Since the beginning of the year, Tesla shares have only known one direction: up. While the share started at EUR 575.80 per share on the first trading day of the new year, it has increased in value by more than 20 percent over the course of the week. Despite the price slump at the beginning of December, the carmaker is continuing its stock market success of 2020. In the past year, the papers of the electric car pioneer rose by 700 percent.

The latest rise in the share price is also making the assets of Group boss Elon Musk continue to grow. According to Bloomberg, it had risen by about $ 150 billion by 2020.
