- Results. Third consecutive quarter of benefits
Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, called the order for US citizens to confine themselves to their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic "fascist" and "forced incarceration". This was stated during the presentation of the financial results for the first quarter of 2020.
For the third consecutive quarter, Tesla had benefits, $ 16 million in the first quarter of 2020, after registering revenues of 5,985 million in the period, 32% more than between January and March 2019. It is the first time that it has made a profit at the start of the year.
Musk launched a furious criticism of the measures taken by the US authorities , as well as those of the majority of the countries of the world, especially the confinement of the population to slow down the spread of the new coronavirus.
"We only have two automobile plants in the US, one in Shanghai and one in the Bay Area (Fremont), which is the one that produces most of our cars. The extent of the confinement or what we should call the forced incarceration of the population in their homes against all their constitutional rights, and to break the liberties of the people in a horrible way "
"It is not why people came to the United States or built this country. It is a scandal. It will create a lot of damage, not only to Tesla but to many companies. Tesla will overcome it but many other companies will not be able to. Everything that people have built throughout its life it is being destroyed, "continued the South African-born billionaire. "I think people are going to be very angry about this. If someone wants to be in their house, they should be allowed to be in their house. But to say that they cannot leave their houses, and that they will be arrested if they do, that is fascist. "
