Besides Tesla’s achievements in vehicle production and deliveries, the Tesla Energy department also did well in Q3 2020. Tesla saw a massive growth of 111% QoQ & 33% YoY in Solar and a surge of 81% QoQ & 59% YoY in energy storage deployment. Major thanks to one of the world’s largest energy projects Tesla is doing in Moss Landing, Calfornia.

Fiat Chrysler’s regulatory credits had their fair share in Q3 2020 profits. Tesla sold $379M in regulatory credits added to the revenue, this is almost double the number of credits compared to last year’s.

The growth of Tesla Energy with 57 MW of solar and 759 MWh of energy storage added $579M into Tesla’s revenue stream. This is over-delivery from even the most bullish estimates, Tesla is just crushing the best of expectations even.

Tesla’s gross automotive gross margins excluding regulatory credits stood at 23.7%. This is a 5% point increase compared to Q2 2020 — again a tremendous achievement by Tesla. Although Q2 was plagued by the COVID-19 situation, Tesla’s gross margin even grew past Q1 2020’s figure of 20.0% ex regulatory credits.

Rob Maurer of the Tesla Daily podcast analyzed the Tesla Q3 2020 numbers in much detail in his episode titled Why Tesla Dominated Q3.
