Tesla published its financial results for the first quarter of 2023. Although they fell short of Wall Street’s expectations – they expected $23,617 million and the company reported $23,300 million – they surprise with their huge profit per car sold: 19.3%. A huge figure, much higher than any other car manufacturer. And it attracts attention, first of all, because of the price reduction that they announced in early January.

While Tesla’s gross revenue was significantly higher compared to the first quarter of 2022 – $18.756 million vs. $23.329 million – net income is down 24%.
