During the Q1 2022 earnings call, Elon Musk and Tesla CFO Zachary Kirkhorn explained that the company’s current vehicle prices considered supply chain price changes. As such, Tesla’s current vehicle prices reflect the rising prices of raw materials

As Musk pointed out, the vehicles ordered today will be delivered in the future. However, raw material prices are constantly increasing. Tesla CFO Zachary Kirkhorn explained this further during the Q1 2022 earnings call. 

“And so, to Elon’s point, what we’re trying to do here because it is quite an unprecedented situation of raw material movement and all of these various lags and all this uncertainty around renegotiating contracts is we’re trying to anticipate where things will go and make sure that the pricing that we have in place at the time that the raw material costs increases hit us, that they align, and that the company can remain financially healthy in various scenarios as we look out over the next four quarters,” elaborated Kirkhorn.
