Moody's upgraded Tesla's long-term corporate family rating, citing a swiftly expanding presence in the U.S., Europe, and China.

Tesla, on its part, said in early January it could start Model Y production at Austin over the next seven to ten days, according to analysis from Wedbush Securities. The Austin site will be key to meet demand for Model Ys, which are predicted to have a massive year in 2022.
