According to the latest Tesla earnings call, the automaker made a $3.3 billion profit in the first quarter of 2022, despite manufacturing difficulties and supply chain issues in China. The company has managed to turn that $3.3 billion profit on over $18.7 billion in revenue.
Tesla earnings call shows that the company crushes Q1 expectations
Compared to last year Tesla experienced a 81% year-on-year increase compared to the $10.4 billion of Q1 2021.
In Q4 2021, Tesla sold $679 million worth of emission credit to other carmakers, compared to $314 million in credit sales. The company generates this income by selling these credits to manufacturers of fewer “clean” automobiles than the US and EU governments demand.
Tesla has credited sales in the past, allowing the automaker to make a profit while its vehicle manufacturing business struggled. Without accounting for emission credit sales, the company said that its manufacture and energy sales sector was profitable for the first time last summer.
Tesla earnings call shows that the company had a record-breaking fourth quarter. The firm built two new factories in Germany on March 22nd and Austin, Texas, on April 8th, while also being compelled to close its Shanghai facility for several weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The costs of establishing those two factories, as well as trying to keep its Chinese factory open, were expected to suppressing Tesla’s results this quarter.
Tesla began producing in Berlin last month, and it started delivering Model Y cars from Texas in April, according to the company. Later this year, Tesla will manufacture structural battery packs with 4680 cells in Texas alongside the usual 2170-cell packs.
This was an *exceptionally* difficult quarter due to supply chain interruptions & China zero Covid policy.
Outstanding work by Tesla team & key suppliers saved the day.
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 2, 2022
Tesla earnings call of Q1 2022 shows that the company follows a strong quarter for delivery and manufacturing. Tesla informed investors that it delivered 310,048 vehicles to clients in the first quarter of this year. CEO Elon Musk called it “exceptionally difficult” to overcome the world’s supply chain difficulties and the factory closure in Shanghai during COVID case rises. Despite that, Musk stated on the call that Tesla would be able to increase production and produce 1.5 million cars this year.
Tesla has managed to delived 295,324 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles out of which 14,724 were Model S and Model X. Deliveries grew modestly from the previous quarter’s 308,600 deliveries and exceeded Tesla’s 184,800 shipments in the first quarter of 2021, which was a 68% percent YoY increase.
The firm’s profit margin per car has continued to climb, reaching a high of 32.9 percent in Q1 2022, up from 26.5 percent in Q1 2021. The firm says it improved the average selling price of its vehicles and expanded the number of cars it delivered.
How sales will be affected after the offer from Elon Musk to buy Twitter?
Tesla navigated the worldwide supply chain problem better than its competition, delivering record volumes and profits for several quarters. By sourcing different chips and adapting software on the fly, the firm was able to avoid similar problems as other global automakers.
There’s also an offer from Elon Musk to buy Twitter for $41 billion. It’s unclear how Musk’s hostile takeover efforts might affect Tesla or its shareholders, but it’s been bad timing given Tesla’s still numerous important milestones this year.
