Cash reserves continue to grow
As of December 31, 2022, Tesla held cash and cash equivalents of $22.2 billion, up 25% from $17.7 billion as of December 31, 2021, and up from $21.1 billion at the end of the third quarter $1.1 billion. The increase in Tesla’s cash and cash equivalents was largely due to free cash flow of $1.4 billion, partially offset by the repayment of $497 million in debt.
In the fourth quarter of 2022 and the whole year of 2022, Tesla’s performance will hit a record high. In the fourth quarter, Tesla’s revenue, operating profit and net profit all set new records. In 2022, Tesla’s overall revenue will reach US$81.5 billion, a year-on-year increase of 51%; net profit will double year-on-year to US$12.6 billion.
Entering 2023, due to the uncertainties of the macroeconomic situation, especially the rising interest rate will still have an impact on Tesla’s performance in the short term, but the Tesla team has become accustomed to challenges. In the near term, Tesla will accelerate its cost reduction plans and increase productivity while continuing to focus on the next phase of the roadmap.
In any case, Tesla is well positioned to navigate short-term uncertainty while focusing on long-term efforts in autonomy, electrification, and energy solutions. Tesla insists on cost control and innovation, and the company believes in its ability to overcome challenges and ultimately achieve long-term success.
In the fourth quarter of 2022, Tesla will set a new record for the output of each of its car factories. While vehicle deliveries in the third month accounted for 74% of the quarter’s total deliveries in the second quarter, that number dropped to 64% in the third quarter and 51% in the fourth quarter. Tesla is working to reduce the proportion of vehicles delivered in the third month of each quarter, which helps to reduce costs.
At the new factory in Austin, USA, as of the end of the fourth quarter, the production of Model Y exceeded 3,000 vehicles per week. In the fourth quarter, Tesla was able to produce 4,680 batteries in-house each week, enough to assemble 1,000 battery packs. In addition, the Tesla electric truck Semi started trial production in the fourth quarter and made the first deliveries in December.
In China, as the Shanghai factory has successfully operated at full capacity for several months, there will be no further explosive growth in production in the near future. In fact, the Shanghai plant remains Tesla’s main export hub, supplying vehicles to most markets outside of North America.
In Europe, as of the end of the fourth quarter, the production of Model Y at the Berlin plant exceeded 3,000 vehicles per week.
– Autopilot and FSD: Tesla has released the FSD beta to all owners of the FSD kit in the US and Canada. For Tesla, this is an important milestone. Consumers in both markets can now access FSD beta features by purchasing or subscribing.
–Car software: Through the built-in camera in the vehicle, Tesla owners can now directly use Zoom to participate in video conferences directly on the car’s touchscreen. In addition, Tesla also built Apple Music into the media player. On the latest version of Model S/X, people can also take advantage of the powerful built-in gaming device to play various games.
——Battery: In a period of macroeconomic uncertainty, Tesla is focused on reducing vehicle costs and increasing cost-effectiveness by improving functionality and reliability.
— Charging facilities: Tesla’s charging infrastructure is growing faster than its stores and service centers. As of the end of the fourth quarter, Tesla has 764 stores and service centers, 4678 super charging stations (42419 charging piles). The number of stores and service centers increased by 19% year-on-year, and the number of charging stations increased by 35% year-on-year.
In 2022, Tesla’s overall revenue will reach US$81.5 billion, an increase of 51% compared with US$53.8 billion in the previous year; net profit attributable to Tesla’s common shareholders will be US$12.6 billion, a year-on-year increase of 128%.
Tesla said it plans to expand production capacity as soon as possible. In the next few years, the company expects to achieve a 50% average annual growth target for electric vehicle deliveries. In some years, Tesla’s deliveries may grow faster, sometimes slower, depending on many factors. Looking ahead to 2023, Tesla expects to deliver 1.8 million vehicles.
