Tesla — now the highest valued automaker — has released its financial results for Q2 of 2020, continuing on its profitability trend for the fourth consecutive quarter.

Over the second quarter, Tesla made a whopping $6 billion USD in revenue, with a net income of $104 million USD, both crushing previous expectations and putting it on track to be listed on S&P 500 market index alongside other giants such as 3M, Alphabet, and Ford. The earnings translated to a profit of $0.50 USD per share despite the increasingly turbulent economy, and Tesla’s stock price went up another 7 percent in after-hours trading following the publishing of the report.

Aside from its financial results, Tesla also announced that it would be building a new Gigafactory in Texas, just 15 minutes outside of Austin “right on the Colorado River,” Musk said during an earnings call. “We’re gonna have a boardwalk where there will be a hiking, biking trail,” he added. “It’s gonna basically be an ecological paradise — birds in the trees, butterflies, fish in the stream. And it’ll be open to the public as well.” The new factory is expected to produce the Model 3 and Model Y as well as the upcoming Cybertruck and Tesla semi for the Eastern half of North America, while the Gigafactory in California will soon begin production on the Tesla Roadster.
