Tesla shares rose 7% in premarket trading Thursday after the electric car manufacturer exceeded Wall Street expectations for the first quarter of 2022 with record revenue, vehicle deliveries, and operating income.
By switching materials and continue concentrating on production, the corporation basically defeated inflation. In premarket trading on Thursday, shares gained 6.9 percent to $1,044.45. In regular trading on Wednesday, before the earnings were disclosed, the stock sank roughly 5%.

During the quarter, Tesla highlighted persistent supply chain problems that hindered its ability to run facilities at full capacity, including chip shortages, Covid-19 outbreaks, and multiple-fold price hikes in some raw materials owing to inflation.
Vehicle manufacturing commenced in March at the Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg utilizing nonstructural packs with 2170 cells. According to the business, Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg will be able to construct Model Ys utilizing both structural packs with 4680 cells and non-structural packs with 2170 cells.
Tesla began shipping Model Y automobiles from its new production in Austin, Texas, in April, as well as the first vehicles with 4680 in-house manufactured cells, single-piece front body castings, and structural battery packs. The business anticipates that Gigafactory Texas will be able to create Model Ys utilizing both structural packs with 4680 cells and non-structural packs with 2170 cells later this year.
Tesla expects current quarter deliveries to be unchanged when compared to the first three months of the year, despite the multi-week suspension of its Shanghai gigafactory, which produced almost half of the group’s vehicles last year, due to China’s ‘zero Covid’ crackdown. The full-year delivery target is 1.47 million units.
“I’d want to congratulate Tesla staff for their hard work, but I’d also like to thank our suppliers who have really gone the additional mile,” Musk said on a conference call with investors late Wednesday. “We have a great supplier group, and I’d want to express my deepest gratitude to the suppliers who have worked tirelessly to guarantee that Tesla can keep the facilities going.”
We are expanding extremely quickly year over year and remain optimistic of achieving 50% yearly increase for the foreseeable future for essentially several years, Musk remarked. The future has a lot of promise. I’ve never felt more positive or thrilled about Tesla’s future than I do today.
