Luminar (NASDAQ:LAZR) stock is up on Wednesday as investors look to Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) as its savior during its latest earnings report.

The lidar company’s earnings report for the first quarter of 2024 notes that electric vehicle maker (EV) Tesla is its largest customer. That resulted in Tesla orders making up more than $2 million, or roughly 10%, of the company’s revenue.

While the details of the relationship between Luminar and Tesla haven’t been revealed, the two companies have been working together since 2021. That’s despite Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk claiming that lidar is a crutch for self-driving vehicles.

Investors will also note that Luminar’s net loss for Q1 2024 was $125.7 million. That’s better than its net loss of $146.7 million reported in the same period of the year prior.
