Tesla to Manufacture Model Y in 2020 in New Facility

Tesla to Manufacture Model Y in 2020 in New Facility

The earnings report started optimistically enough, with Elon Musk forecasting an end to Tesla's cash-burning days after blazing through another $1 billion last quarter.

Musk assured investors that there wouldn't be any more delays for the Model 3.

Tesla struggled to produce the mass-market Model 3 electric auto during the quarter, falling short of production estimates. In the future, all Gigafactories will include vehicle production.

For personal guess ROI is usually expressed as a percentage and is typically used for taking any financial decisions, for the objective of comparing a Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)'s profitability or to compare the efficiency of different investments, hence, TSLA return on investment (ROI) is -6.50%.

Tesla reported a record loss of $709.6 million (roughly Rs. 4,700 crores), or $4.19 (roughly Rs. 280) per share, for the first quarter ended March 31, compared with a loss of $330.3 million, or $2.04 per share, a year earlier.

Musk cut off analysts' queries about the company's capital requirements and whether it was retaining Model 3 reservation holders, calling the questions "so dry" and "not cool".

Musk now expects to be able to make 5,000 cars' worth a week before installing an automation system from its German manufacturing unit Grohmann. Hitting a successful production cycle for the Model 3 is crucial for Tesla to establish itself as a serious, profitable mass market carmaker.

In addition to updating its Model 3 production targets, Tesla also gave quarterly results that came in better than had been expected.

It's not every day we get to see people debating more on the production issues of a carmaker than on the auto models rolling off assembly lines.

Tesla Inc. has had only two profitable quarters in its almost eight years as a public company.

"But investors are getting more and more anxious, the hype is starting to wear off for them and Tesla needs to find solutions quickly".

"I'm feeling quite confident about hitting positive cash flow in Q3".

Automotive revenue rose only 1 percent from the prior quarter to $2.74 billion (roughly Rs. 18,300 crores). The business was $710 million (£523 million) in the red in the first quarter and burned its way through $700 million in cash. "All they get are more unfulfilled statements and claims".

"We're going to YouTube", said Musk, directing the operator to stop taking analysts' calls.

Following its Q4 earnings information update, many executives have quit the company, such as Tesla's Autopilot leader Jim Keller, its Chief Accounting Officer Eric Branderiz, but Tesla is sure to bounce back, and soon.
