Tesla’s recently posted 10-K filing has revealed something quite interesting about the company’s plans for the near future. Amidst the pursuit of its ambitious goal of ramping to 20 million vehicles per year by the end of the decade, Tesla has noted that it is planning to spend between $6 billion to $8 billion this year.

And in 2024 and 2025, Tesla is expecting to raise its capital expenditures to between $7 billion and $9 billion. For comparison, Tesla’s capital expenditures reached $7.16 billion last year and $6.48 billion in 2021. With this in mind, it would definitely appear that Tesla is setting up a notable ramp in the coming years. 

Tesla explained its intentions to raise its capital expenditures in the coming years in the following section of the 10-K filing. 

“We are simultaneously ramping new products, ramping manufacturing facilities on three continents and piloting the development and manufacture of new battery cell technologies, and the pace of our capital spend may vary depending on overall priority among projects, the pace at which we meet milestones, production adjustments to and among our various products, increased capital efficiencies and the addition of new projects. 

“Owing and subject to the foregoing as well as the pipeline of announced projects under development, all other continuing infrastructure growth and varying levels of inflation, we currently expect our capital expenditures to be between $6.00 to $8.00 billion in 2023 and between $7.00 to $9.00 billion in each of the following two fiscal years,” Tesla wrote. 

Tesla’s comments about its increasing capital expenditures could be perceived as bullish news for the company. The EV maker, after all, has only gotten better at managing its growth and investments. This suggests that its $6 billion to $8 billion capital expenditures this year would likely go a long way toward the ramp of the company’s numerous projects. 

The next years will be particularly busy for Tesla, as the company will be starting the production of the Cybertruck. The Tesla Semi is expected to see a ramp to 50,000 units per year by 2024 as well. Tesla is also expected to launch new products such as the Optimus humanoid robot, an affordable car, a dedicated Robotaxi, and a “Robovan,” among others.
