Tesla’s net income (GAAP) for Q3 2022 reached $3.3 billion, with automotive gross margins holding steady at 27.9%, exactly where it stood in the second quarter of 2022.
During the same period last year, Tesla reported $1.62 billion in profits.
Automotive revenue came in at $18.69 billion, an increase of 55% from a year ago.
Tesla reiterated previous guidance in its shareholder deck on Wednesday, saying: “Over a multi-year horizon, we expect to achieve 50% annual growth in vehicle deliveries.”
The company reiterated that deliveries of its Semi electric heavy duty truck will begin in December. The product was first announced in Dec. 2017. It offered no firm timeline for the start of production of its Cybertruck pickup, saying only that it would be produced in Texas after the ramp-up of Model Y production there.
The company previously reported that its deliveries for the quarter ending September 30 reached 343,000 and vehicle production reached 365,000. Deliveries are the closest approximation of sales reported by Tesla. Shares have dipped more than 17% since that weekend report on October 2.
