Moody’s Rating Agency upgrades Tesla and expects 1.4M vehicles delivered this year

The Ratings Agency, Moody’s, upgraded Tesla Inc’s debt rating by two notches to Ba1 from Ba3 on Monday maintaining its expectations that the company will keep its position as the leading battery EV manufacturer.

Moody’s affirmed in a note that Tesla’s outlook remains positive and the company will continue to increase its scale rapidly and improve its profitability notably. A more competitive offering of battery electric vehicles by other automakers could start to exert some pressure on the company’s margins in 2023. – Moody’s added.


Earlier this month, Tesla announced that deliveried 308,600 vehicles in Q4, setting a new record during the last Quarter. In 2021, Tesla delivered a total of 936,172 vehicles in 2021, crushing all the expectations. 

During Q4 2020, the company delivered about 181,000 vehicles and Wall Street was looking for about 176,000 vehicles to be delivered at the time of the release. The result was about a 3% beat versus expectations. This quarter, Wall Street expectations were on 275,000 units, which means Tesla beat by more than 12%.


Moody’s expect that Tesla will deliver nearly 1.4 million vehicles in 2022, up from about 936,000 in 2021.

Tesla will have the Earnings Call next Wednesday after the Closing Bell with product updates being expected from Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk.
