Tesla reports quarterly results

Highlights of the Tesla Q2 2022 results include:

What else did Tesla report?

Elon Musk’s Tesla produced 258,580 vehicles in quarter two, up 25% year on year but down from 15% in the previous quarter. Of these vehicles, 254,695 were delivered.

The company made “significant progress” in the second quarter. However, there were also challenges, including shutdowns, global supply chain disruptions, and labour shortages.

Shanghai was shut down for most of the quarter, limiting production. However, to end the quarter, Tesla achieved record monthly production in Shanghai.

In the US, the Fremont Factory produced record vehicle numbers in the second quarter.

New factories in Berlin-Brandenburg and Austin ramped up in the quarter. In one week, Tesla managed to produce more than 1,000 vehicles at the Berlin gigafactory.

Energy storage deployments fell 11% year on year, while solar distribution jumped 25% year on year.

Tesla converted 75% of its bitcoin purchases into fiat currency, adding $936 million to the cash balance sheet.

What’s ahead?

In what could spell good news for the Tesla share price, the company said recent upgrades in Shanghai will lift the production rate from this factory in the future.

In Europe, Tesla can see the production rate increasing through the year.

In the US, Tesla sees opportunity to boost production rates. For example, in Texas, the company can now produce vehicles with either structural batteries or legacy battery. Tesla added:

The next generation of 4680 battery cell machinery has been installed in Texas and is in the process of commissioning. Factory output in Texas continues to grow.

Overall, Tesla is planning to boost manufacturing as “quickly as possible”. The company is forecasting it can achieve a 50% increase in the average annual growth rate of vehicle deliveries.

Commenting on the overall outlook, Tesla said:

We have sufficient liquidity to fund our product roadmap, long-term capacity expansion plans and other expenses.

The pace of production ramps in Austin and Berlin-Brandenburg will be influenced by the successful introduction of many new product and manufacturing technologies in new locations and ongoing supply chain related challenges.
