Tesla’s Revenue Grows But Profit Margins Decline

Tesla reveals a 42% jump in revenue, but in conjunction with declining car profit margins

Tesla stock rose slightly following the release of second-quarter results, as the electric vehicle maker earned $2.27 per share on an adjusted basis, beating analyst estimates of $1.81 per share, as for revenues, it amounted to 16.93 billion dollars, but it failed to reach the level of expectations of 17.1 billion dollars.

Gross profit margins reached 27.9%, down from 32.9% during the previous quarter and 28.4% during the same quarter a year ago, as they were affected by inflation and fierce competition for battery cells and other parts used in electric vehicles, and the automotive revenue of $14.6 billion made up total revenue, plus $1.47 billion from services and other revenue streams for the company, and energy division revenue was $866 million.

Regulatory corporate credit income reached $344 million, which is a decrease of about $10 million, or 3%, compared to the same period in 2021. Read more [Weak Deliveries in Tesla in The Second Quarter].
