YOUR NEXT CAR WILL BE A VOLT:
Tesla's Explosive Revenue Suggests a Bright Future (Kevin Bullis, February 20, 2013, Technology Review)
Posted by Orrin Judd at February 20, 2013 7:41 PMTesla announced today that its revenues have jumped by 500 percent and that it's now making enough cars per week to deliver 20,000 of the vehicles by the end of this year. It also said it expects to make a small profit next quarter. Based on its gross margins, it seems that Tesla is now actually making its cars for less than it's selling them for, rather than losing money on every one it makes, as had been the case previously. Improved productivity and lower costs for parts are helping.
