2.Cost And Margin Metrics
2.1 Tesla's Gross Margins Stood At Over 23% In 2018, Versus ~16% For BMW
Tesla's gross margins are slightly ahead of BMW's, likely due to its focus on more premium vehicles and relatively lower complexity of electric drivetrains vs. internal combustion engines.
Note: we are adding back R&D expenses to BMW's reported gross margins, as the company considers R&D a part of direct costs.

2.2 Tesla Still Manufacturers Less Vehicles Per Employee Compared To BMW
We estimate that Tesla produces under 7 vehicles per year, per full time employee, compared to 20 vehicles per employee for BMW. However, greater automation on the Model 3 has helped Tesla improve this metric over 2018 and it is likely to rise significantly over 2019 as well.
Note: We estimate full time employees for Tesla's automotive operation by reducing an estimated 12k employees which work in its solar business.
