  • Tesla's Moment of Truth: Can They Maintain Margins?
    In a recent interview, Wedbush analyst Dan Ives discusses the current situation of Tesla and the implications of their price cuts. Tesla has reduced prices multiple times, which has stimulated demand, particularly in China. However, Ives emphasizes that the critical factor for Tesla's success lies in their ability to maintain their margins.
    Margins have been a key strength for Tesla, with their profitability outperforming other players in the industry. But as prices continue to decrease, there are concerns about whether Tesla can sustain its high margins. Ives, on the other hand, remains optimistic, citing the scale of Tesla's operations in China as a determining factor. He believes that if Tesla can reduce battery costs not only in China but globally, it will give them more flexibility to cut overall costs and maintain margins.
    Another important consideration is logistics. As Tesla continues to expand its presence worldwide, the company can benefit from economies of scale in terms of transportation and delivery. This, coupled with the expected growth in demand for electric vehicles, could lead to stable margins for Tesla in the long run.
    However, there are questions about the correlation between price cuts and delivery numbers. Despite reducing prices, it appears that Tesla's delivery numbers have not increased correspondingly. This raises doubts about the true level of demand for Tesla's vehicles.
    Ives acknowledges that the electric vehicle market is undergoing a transition, and it is crucial for Tesla to solidify its customer base. With fierce competition in the industry, Tesla needs to ensure customer loyalty and satisfaction to secure its market position. By consistently offering competitive pricing and maintaining their quality standards, Tesla can strengthen its relationship with existing customers and attract new ones.
    In conclusion, Tesla's moment of truth lies in its ability to maintain margins while stimulating demand through price cuts. The success of their strategy will depend on factors such as reducing battery costs, leveraging economies of scale, and strengthening customer relationships. Only time will reveal whether Tesla can flex its muscles and maintain its position as a leader in the electric vehicle industry.

  • Look, it's the moment of truth because ultimately they've cut prices.
  • Demand's been stimulated.
  • We've seen that especially in China.
  • It's all about margins.
  • I mean, margins is really going to be the story or can they maintain that 20 percent margins in the Senate?
  • If they are, and we believe they will, it's a flex the muscles moment for Musk in terms of the arms race.
  • How do you believe that they will?
  • Now, granted their margins are better than everybody else by leaps and bounds in the space, but why do you believe that margins are going to hold up as prices seemingly continue to come down?
  • It's really the scale that we see in China.
  • I think that's important.
  • Battery cost, ultimately, I mean, that's the golden goose because if you're able to cut battery costs, not just in China, but just globally, that gives them more flexibility to cut costs.
  • Logistics has come down.
  • Look, we believe this is really the start of what's going to be a narrative where they're able to cut prices.
  • That stabilizes margins stable.
  • And then demand, we're looking at 35, 40 percent growth in this macro.
  • I know, but even though they're cutting prices and they're doing so with such regularity, it seems it's not like their delivery numbers have increased in kind.
  • So what does that say about the demand that you say is still so great?
  • It's a great point.
  • I think right now, obviously, we're going through a transition in the EV space.
  • I think for Musk and Tesla, it's about putting really an iron fence around their install base.
  • I believe this is really what's going to lead to the next phase, which is just a massive sort of tidal wave of EV adoption.
  • But given what we see in the 313 area code and given what's happened in Europe, they need to ultimately be cost competitive.
  • And that's what they're doing.
  • 1.8 million vehicles is the guide for 23, right?
  • Yeah.
  • How confident are you that they're going to at least meet that?
  • Oh, I think for the first time now, there's more upside potential than downside.
  • You know, as me and you've talked about for really the last year and a half, it was death by a thousand cuts, continue to cut.
  • Now, finally, it feels like that demand story is at the point where you actually start to see that ultimately tick up, not down, which is the narrative.
  • Are you concerned that they'll cut prices again if they have to?
  • I mean, you talk about China, the market in China right now is more competitive than it's ever been, arguably, and only getting more so, right?
  • Yeah, it's a price war that's essentially happened, NIO, Xping and others.
  • But I think for Tesla, I mean, this is it's a game of thrones battle because you're seeing massive market share potential gains that they're ultimately looking to lock in.
  • And it's not the time to sit there with hubris from a price perspective because they do, as you talk about, they have that flexibility because of the margin structure and they're able to do this.
  • And I view this as really a moment of truth quarter for Musk and Tesla.
  • I know, but at what point do you worry about those margins if they continue on the path of cutting prices?
  • I mean, eventually something's got to give, right?
  • I mean, what number to you from a margin standpoint would be worrisome?
  • I think if you got into margins that were in the teens rather than what's really been the low to mid 20s, that's sort of the five alarm fire.
  • I think right now we could buy maybe see more price cuts called two, three, 4% type price cuts.
  • But then that's it.
  • I think they finally now have sort of laid the ground for what's going to be the story.
  • That's why this is a very important conference call, as you talk about in terms of Musk talking about the price cuts and what the margin trajectory looks like going forward.
