In this latest edition of "Charged,"  we look at some analysts' notes, news and activity in the electric vehicle and clean energy space.

EV MARKET SHARE IN U.S., EUROPE

Tesla's (TSLA) hold on the electric vehicle market is showing early signs of slipping, as major competitors push rival models in their race to catch up to Elon Musk's attempt to build an electric-car future, The Wall Street Journal's Rebecca Elliott said this week. In the U.S., Ford's (F) electric SUV, the Mustang Mach-E, has started eating into Tesla's market share, while in Europe, Volkswagen (VWAGY) surpassed Musk's company to become the top-selling all-electric car maker there last year, Elliott reported, citing new market data. In other markets, including Asia, Tesla's market shares has held steady or grown, Elliott noted.

MODEL S PLAID PLUS RESERVATIONS

After having updated its online configurator to change pricing on several models on Wednesday, Tesla has now updated the Model S online configurator again to change the delivery timeline for the new Model S Plaid Plus, pushing the estimated delivery date out to "mid-2022," according to Electrek's Fred Lambert.

NEW BATTERIES

LG Chem is looking to provide EV maker Tesla with "advanced battery cells" in 2023, wrote Hyunjoo Jin of Reuters. Additionally, LG is considering production facilities in the U.S. and Europe, Reuters added, citing sources. "LG plans to produce 4680 cells at its new U.S. factory. They plan to build a new 4680 cell line to supply Tesla's Giga Berlin in Europe," said a source for the story.
