Slide 3

In the second quarter of 2021, we broke new and notable records. We produced and delivered over 200,000 vehicles, achieved an operating margin of 11.0% and exceeded $1B of GAAP net income for the first time in our history. Supply chain challenges, in particular global semiconductor shortages and port congestion, continued to be present in Q2. The Tesla team, including supply chain, software development and our factories, worked extremely hard to keep production running as close to full capacity as possible. With global vehicle demand at record levels, component supply will have a strong influence on the rate of our delivery growth for the rest of this year.  We successfully launched Tesla Vision in Q2, which was mainly possible due to our ability to use data from over a million Tesla vehicles to source a large, diverse and accurate dataset. Solving full autonomy is a difficult engineering challenge in which we continue to believe can only be solved through the collection of large, real-world datasets and cutting-edge AI.  Public sentiment and support for electric vehicles seems to be at a never-before-seen inflection point. We continue to work hard to drive down costs and increase our rate of production to make electric vehicles accessible to as many people as possible.   Operating cash flow less capex (free cash flow) of $619M in Q2 Net debt and finance lease repayments of $1.6B in Q2 In total, $912M decrease in our cash and cash equivalents in Q2 to $16.2B Cash Record vehicle production and deliveries in Q2 Successful launch of FSD subscription in July Started delivering the new Model S to customers Profitability $1.3B GAAP operating income; 11.0% operating margin in Q2 $1.1B GAAP net income; $1.6B non-GAAP net income (ex-SBC1) in Q2 28.4% GAAP Automotive gross margin (25.8% ex-credits) in Q2 Operations S U M M A R Y H I G H L I G H T S 3 (1) SBC = stock-based compensation

F I N A N C I A L   S U M M A R Y Revenue Profitability Cash Total revenue grew 98% YoY in Q2. This was primarily achieved through substantial growth in vehicle deliveries, as well as growth in other parts of the business. At the same time, vehicle ASP1 declined by 2% YoY as Model S and Model X deliveries were reduced in Q2 due to the product updates and as lower ASP China-made vehicles became a larger percentage of our mix.   Our operating income improved in Q2 compared to the same period last year to $1.3B, resulting in an 11.0% operating margin. This profit level was reached while incurring SBC expense attributable to the 2018 CEO award of $176M in Q2, driven by a new operational milestone becoming probable.  Operating income increased YoY mainly due to volume growth and cost reduction. Positive impacts were partially offset by growth in operating expenses including increased SBC, Model S/X ramp (negative margin in Q2), additional supply chain costs, lower regulatory credit revenue, Bitcoin-related impairment of $23M and other items. Quarter-end cash and cash equivalents decreased to $16.2B in Q2, driven mainly by net debt and finance lease repayments of $1.6B, partially offset by free cash flow of $619M. 5 (1) ASP = average selling price

Days of supply is calculated by dividing new car ending inventory by the relevant quarter’s deliveries and using 75 trading days (aligned with Automotive News definition). In Q2 2021, we began including mobile service vehicles dedicated to tire repair in our mobile service fleet total. Prior period totals have been adjusted to reflect this change. 6 O P E R A T I O N A L   S U M M A R Y (Unaudited)

V E H I C L E   C A P A C I T Y Global demand continues to be robust, and we are producing at the limits of available parts supply. While we saw ongoing semiconductor supply challenges in Q2, we were able to further grow our production. US: California and Texas Production ramp of Model S progressed over the course of Q2, and we expect it will continue to increase throughout the rest of the year. Given strong U.S. demand, the majority of all Model 3/Y production was delivered in North America. Buildout of Gigafactory Texas continued to progress in Q2 with commissioning having begun in some areas of the factory. China: Shanghai While we experienced minor interruptions due to supply chain challenges and factory upgrades, production in Shanghai remained strong. Per our planned roadmap, we recently introduced a standard range version of Model Y in China, which starts at ¥276,000 post incentives. Due to strong U.S. demand and global average cost optimization, we have completed the transition of Gigafactory Shanghai as the primary vehicle export hub. Europe: Berlin-Brandenburg While our global production lines continue to run as fast as possible, European demand remains well above supply, resulting in growing wait times for delivery. We continue installing equipment, have begun testing tools and are working as quickly as possible toward starting production in Berlin, while growing import volumes in the interim. 7 Installed capacity ≠ current production rate and there may be limitations discovered as production rates approach capacity. Production rates depend on a variety of factors, including equipment uptime, component supply, downtime related to factory upgrades, regulatory considerations and other factors.

C O R E   T E C H N O L O G Y Autopilot and Full Self Driving (FSD) After selling over a million vehicles equipped with radar, we have collected enough data to start removing it in some regions. The removal of radar, which is enabled by our collection of a vast dataset of corner cases, allows us to focus on vision and increase the pace of improvement. Our first customers downloaded FSD V9 Beta in July, prompting strong positive feedback from current users. Vehicle Software Our team has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to react quickly and mitigate disruptions to manufacturing caused by semiconductor shortages. Our electrical and firmware engineering teams remain hard at work designing, developing and validating 19 new variants of controllers in response to ongoing semiconductor shortages. Battery and Powertrain We have successfully validated performance and lifetime of our 4680 cells produced at our Kato facility in California. We are nearing the end of manufacturing validation at Kato: field quality and yield are at viable levels and our focus is now on improving the 10% of manufacturing processes that currently bottleneck production output. While substantial progress has been made, we still have work ahead of us before we can achieve volume production. Internal crash testing of our structural pack architecture with a single-piece front casting has been successful. View from vehicle cameras 8 What the vehicle sees (FSD V9 Beta)

O T H E R H I G H L I G H T S Energy Storage Energy storage deployments more than tripled YoY in Q2, driven mainly by recognition of several Megapack projects. Energy storage deployments can vary meaningfully quarter to quarter depending on the timing of specific project milestones. Powerwall remained exceptionally popular as deployments nearly doubled YoY. Energy storage production continues to be held back by supply chain challenges as our backlog remains long. Solar Retrofit and Solar Roof Solar deployments reached 85 MW in Q2, more than tripling YoY. Additionally, cash/loan solar deployments more than quadrupled YoY. Solar Roof deployments grew substantially both YoY as well as sequentially in Q2. Thus far, our solar + storage product remains very popular, and we continue to improve efficiency of our install crews. Services and Other Gross margin of the Services & Other business reached nearly breakeven in Q2, the best result in four years. This improvement was driven mainly by strong performance in used vehicles as well as our continued focus on cost efficiency. 9 Tesla Energy Storage deployments in GWh (can vary meaningfully) Tesla Energy Storage deployments in GWh (TTM)

O U T L O O K Volume Cash Profit Product We plan to grow our manufacturing capacity as quickly as possible. Over a multi-year horizon, we expect to achieve 50% average annual growth in vehicle deliveries. In some years we may grow faster, which we expect to be the case in 2021. The rate of growth will depend on our equipment capacity, operational efficiency, and the capacity and stability of the supply chain. We have sufficient liquidity to fund our product roadmap, long-term capacity expansion plans and other expenses. We expect our operating margin will continue to grow over time, continuing to reach industry-leading levels with capacity expansion and localization plans underway. We believe we remain on track to build our first Model Y vehicles in Berlin and Austin in 2021. The pace of the respective production ramps will be influenced by the successful introduction of many new product and manufacturing technologies, ongoing supply-chain related challenges and regional permitting. To better focus on these factories, and due to the limited availability of battery cells and global supply chain challenges, we have shifted the launch of the Semi truck program to 2022. We are also making progress on the industrialization of Cybertruck, which is currently planned for Austin production subsequent to Model Y. 10
