Despite the global chip crisis and problems in supply chains, US electric car maker Tesla made more profits in 2021 than at any time in any fiscal year. The bottom line is that the group posted a profit of $5.5 billion on Wednesday, up 665 percent from a year earlier. Sales rose 71 percent to $53.8 billion.
The leading e-car company delivered 936,000 good cars in 2021, an increase of 87 percent. Tesla has not set a specific sales target for 2022; In the long term, the company is aiming for annual growth rates of around 50 percent.
No new car models 2022
But since there are still supply chain issues, CEO Elon Musk has put some pressure on the brakes. “We will not introduce any new car models this year,” the businessman said in a video conference with analysts. It doesn’t make sense because there is still a shortage of ingredients.
According to Musk, the start of production of the “Cybertruck” electric truck, which was actually planned last year, will likely be delayed until 2023. To expand manufacturing, Tesla is also heavily reliant on its first European plant in Grünheide, near Berlin, and a new American car plant in Austin, Texas. (SDA)
