The directors state that “the company’s own success remains dependent on the overall success of the vehicles at a global level”.

The price for the Model Y ranges from €44,990 to €57,990, while the price range for the Model 3 goes from €40,990 to €55,890.

The firm’s cost of sales last year increased by 107% from €64.84m to €133.68m.

The company recorded operating profits of €2.12m last year and interest payments of €145,042 reduced profits to a pre-tax profits of €1.98m.
