(1) Net income - Going bonkers!
Tesla reported more than $3.30 Billion in Net income. That is a record number only just beating Q1. Tesla however guided towards deliveries of 400k+ next quarter meaning Net income is also likely to increase by $1-1.5 billion!
(2,3) Free Cash Flow - Money Machine?
Tesla is now reportedly making vehicles on average for only $30k per vehicle (remember, no marketing spend either!). Average selling prices for Tesla vehicles did decrease slightly but they’re still up year over year. This shows that there is enough demand for Tesla to raise prices such that they can absorb rising inflation.
You can see that Tesla’s Average Selling Price (ASP) is down QoQ from $56k to $53.5k per vehicle. ASP Is still up Year Over Year however.
(4,5) What happened with revenue?
Tesla revenue grew a healthy 56%! Year over Year! Whilst in the mean time, the Operational Expenditure roseonly 2% YoY (see below) showing that Tesla is generating significant operating leverage and continually improving production to become more efficient.
(6,7) But but… the competition?
The ‘competition’ is shipping vehicles without key security features, like Ford shipping vehicles without chips controlling non-safety critical features. Not only this, but Ford and other OEM’s are at the mercy of dealerships, Tesla doesn’t have this ridiculously outdated model and is achieving higher profit because of it. You know something else that competitors can’t say?
Why would anyone want a non-Tesla EV? Or even a non Tesla vehicle in general?
“If (you) care about having the latest technology, much lower cost of ownership than an ICE vehicle, little maintenance and best in class safety, then an EV is the way to go (specifically a Tesla). “ Respected Twitter analyst Sawyer Merritt said
And that isn’t even taking into account that Tesla’s tend to APPRECIATE after having bought them..
“Tesla’s hold their value better than almost any major auto makers vehicles.” said Merrit.
OK, so buying a Tesla and having the cars value go up is insane right. But it gets crazier.
Let me tell you something REALLY crazy.
These cars are increasing in profitability, Tesla is continually making more money on each vehicle they produce over time.
You can see the significant production advantage Tesla has compared to its ‘competition’ that is significantly lagging behind in the following comparison chart, courtsey of Finchart.co
