Tesla Makes Money (Including From Selling Cars)

Bitcoin and emissions credits helped it set a quarterly earnings record.

Tesla, the emission credits and crypto company

The electric carmaker posted record quarterly earnings yesterday, beating Wall Street forecasts. But a closer look shows that its core business you know, making vehicles wasn뭪 the only story, and that might be why the company뭩 stock fell in aftermarket trading.

Tesla reported a quarterly profit of $438 million, its highest ever. But financial maneuvers flattered this number:

뷪esla뭩 $1.5 billion purchase of Bitcoin, and subsequent sale of a chunk of its holdings, led to a $101 million accounting boost. Bitcoin 뱒o far has proven to be a good decision, Zach Kirkhorn, Tesla뭩 C.F.O. (no, we뭨e not using his other title), told analysts yesterday, adding that the company would continue to invest in crypto as a place to park excess cash. (The company뭩 holdings will also grow as customers start buying cars with Bitcoin.)


뷪esla also made $518 million from selling emissions credits to other carmakers, up from $354 million a year ago. This has been a steady, high-margin side hustle for Tesla as it ramps up auto production.


The business of selling cars is headed in the right direction, but faces supply problems. Vehicle deliveries came to 184,000, ahead of expectations, even as sales of Model S and X cars fell ahead of lineup revamps. But Elon Musk, Tesla뭩 C.E.O. (or, fine, 밫echnoking, if we must), conceded that problems in sourcing components notably, the global shortage of computer chips had led to 뱒ome of the most difficult supply-chain challenges that we뭭e ever experienced. The real pinch may come in the second quarter, so it뭩 a good thing that Tesla has so many other businesses to fall back on.



Safety issues could be a bigger, long-term risk. Tesla is still dealing with an investigation into a fatal crash in Texas this month involving one of its vehicles, in which the police say no one was behind the wheel. Tesla뭩 chief engineer cited new evidence yesterday that potentially contradicts that claim. And the company is trying to put out a P.R. crisis in China, after the state news media accused it of 밷eing arrogant in its handling of a customer뭩 complaints about her car뭩 brakes.

븪The main line in the sand now for the bulls and bears is not the near-term chip shortage, Dan Ives of Wedbush wrote in a research note this morning. More important to Tesla뭩 finances is its ability to grow in China, he wrote, which could account for 40 percent of its deliveries by next year.
