For all the justified worries about Tesla's finances, they remain in a pretty good competitive spot in the electric vehicle market — for now.

The big picture: The chart above, via this new Cox Automotive report on the U.S. EV market, shows how the Silicon Valley company dominates the market for pure electric vehicle sales.

  • "Without Tesla, EV market share is stagnant, yet almost 100 electrified models are coming soon," the report notes.
  • Among a survey of people "considering" an EV purchase, Tesla dominates in brand awareness at 81%.

It's not the only recent data showing Tesla's strength in the EV market.

  • Bloomberg breaks down new info from the California New Car Dealers Association.
  • "Tesla registrations surged to 40,085 in the first half, giving it 4.2% market share in the biggest U.S. state by population," they report.

President Trump tweeted on Friday that his administration is "going a different way" with coronavirus aid after negotiations with congressional Democrats stalled again, suggesting he will use an executive order to address stimulus spending.

What he's saying: "Pelosi and Schumer only interested in Bailout Money for poorly run Democrat cities and states. Nothing to do with China Virus! Want one trillion dollars. No interest. We are going a different way!" Trump tweeted.
