Tesla took in $35.7 billion in the first half of 2022 compared to BYD’s $21.8 billion. The difference in terms of profit is even more notable.

Tesla sells higher-priced “premium” products that offer a larger gross margin, while BYD often competes in more cutthroat affordable car categories. Both companies have amazing strategies but are Tesla smarter?
