Tesla explained that supply chain issues are expected to continue to affect the company and its ability to produce electric vehicles for the remainder of this year. Failure has been a constant problem in recent years due to the implementation of various pandemic blockades in different countries. Embora has already realized that the problems of abstinence could start to subside in 2022, more recent increases and world events have raised new concerns.
The technology depot was particularly affected by the escape with everything from smartphones to electric vehicles. More recently, demand in the electric vehicle market has come under pressure due to higher gas costs. In Tesla’s case, the rise in gasoline prices resulted in a significant increase in orders in the Model line of the company’s electric vehicles. Another direct effect seems to be the various price increases that Tesla has recently implemented.
Tesla’s last quarter earnings report confirmed strong production and delivery numbers during the first three months of 2022. However, the company also explained the impact of the shutdown and took the opportunity to say the situation didn’t really exist. According to Tesla, despite the impact of global supply chain pressures in the first quarter, the company also experienced disruptions in transportation, labor and general manufacturing. All this resulted in “limiting our ability to run our factories at full capacity† After explaining how their factories “operating under capacity for several quarters,“Tesla, That’s It”it is likely that it will continue until the rest of 2022†
Despite announcing lingering issues likely to affect Tesla’s production for the remainder of 2022, he has seen better overall. The lack of chips and GPUs seems to be slowly improving, making it a bit easier to get a graphics card and other devices. Similarly, Tesla also announced a third quarter for the company. During the first quarter, Tesla proposed to build 305,407 vehicles and deliver a total of 310,048. Embora Tesla built slightly more (305,840), delivered less (308,600) in the fourth quarter of 2021. More importantly, production in the first quarter of 2022 increased significantly compared to the first quarter of 2021 (180,338).
Obviously, Tesla is careful to warn that the rest of the year may not see the kind of prosperity many can expect, as a lot of internal and external pressures make it tough, but certainly everything. The recent COVID-19 spikes in China, for example, created new pressures, forcing companies to… Tesla implementing small orthodox measures to ensure that permanent production is affected as little as possible.
