According to Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) it expects to report a first-quarter profit on both a net and adjusted basis after its stronger-than-expected sales of the Model S sedan, Reuters reported. Model S sales exceeded 4,750 units during the quarter, which is higher than the 4,500 Tesla had forecast, the company stated on Monday. In January, Tesla stated that it would be profitable in the first quarter when expenses related to non-cash options and warrants were excluded, and it added that the small battery option for the Model S would not enter production because of low demand.
