Tesla officially has a higher valuation than Toyota, Volkswagen, and Honda combined thanks to a significant surge in the electric automaker’s stock price over the past week.
Toyota, Volkswagen, and Honda currently sit at the second, third, and fourth-most valuable automakers in the world, respectively. However, while the three companies are among the largest car companies in the world, their valuation combined has fallen behind that of Tesla’s, which has gained nearly $400 in value in just one week.
Tesla has been a leader in transitioning the massive worldwide automotive industry to a sustainable, electric-based, sector that is both fun and great for the environment. After the Model 3 was released in 2017, Tesla was officially recognized as a mass-market car company that offered premium, sustainable vehicles that most families could afford to purchase.
