Morgan Stanley thinks the decision by Tesla Motors (TSLA) to drop the short-range version of the Model S is the right move for the automaker. Though it's a minor blow to the concept of mass market EV adoption, consolidating production around demand makes sense. Only 4% of Model S customers selected the 40kWh battery option.
