Tesla now has the largest market cap in the automotive industry.

During yesterday’s trading session, Tesla broke new records. For the first time ever, the company's stock price exceeded $1,000, and ended the day at $1,025.05, after it gained more than 9%. 

The price surged after Elon Musk decided to urge the production of the electric freight truck – Tesla Semi. The decision comes after some investors became interested in one of Tesla’s competitors.

Now, Tesla became the most valuable automaker in the world, with a market cap of $190 billion. 

The competitor that triggered the change is supposed to be Nikola Corp., an Arizona-based electric-truck that had its IPO last week. The newly emerged company doubled its share price since trading publicly.

But the success was shadowed by the fact that six of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19. No one knows exactly the number of positive checked employees because the company doesn't conduct regular tests.

Since the beginning of the year, Tesla stock went up more than 140%. USA30 lost 5%, and USA500 fell by 1%.
