Tesla reports biggest-ever quarterly loss

Musk space car is in deep trouble

Once at that production rate, Tesla could begin to generate sustained positive operating income "at some point in 2018", Musk said.

Much attention from analysts and the public has been focused on the Model 3.

But late on Tuesday (local time), Mr Musk confirmed the final firing of the rocket's upper stage put his vehicle on a more distant trajectory than anticipated. The goal was to end its reliance on Russian Federation in 2017.

"He appears to be more eager to sell hats and flamethrowers rather than meeting previously stated production targets for Tesla vehicles", Thibault wrote in a note to investors. So in order to convert young Tesla evangelists into Tesla customers, the company had to make a auto that was affordable to those whose salaries and savings accounts didn't justify the steep price tag of a Model S or X.

'Demonstration missions like this one typically carry steel or concrete blocks as mass simulators, but SpaceX decided it would be more worthwhile to launch something fun and without irreplaceable sentimental value: a red Roadster for the red planet'.

The company suggests the pod could hold around six people, billing it as a hub for "significant lunar business development". To that end, Musk said that he's been generally happy about how the company's work on its neural nets for autonomous driving have been progressing. Tesla did not break out numbers for the Model X deliveries.

The Model 3 is "the key element" to Tesla's long-term financial stability, said Autotrader executive publisher Karl Brauer. For example, he said, the company has almost completed an automated battery module assembly line which will speed production at its Nevada battery factory.

The new date depends on when the reservation was placed and what model was ordered. The question looming large for Wall Street: Just how long can Tesla go before it returns to the equity or debt markets?

The agreement will allow Tesla to set up a factory in China without having to partner with a local manufacturer, a first for any global automaker. The goal, as Musk has said, is nothing less than full self-driving mode in nearly all circumstances. The Shanghai facility is expected to roll out the first cars by 2020.

But it was also a year of manufacturing setbacks that Musk said, last quarter, had put the Model 3 "deep in production hell".

His expectations for Model Y, which hasn't yet been unveiled, are enormous. Tesla tends to set ambitious goals that it isn't always able to achieve. The company sold 28,425 of those vehicles in the fourth quarter.

Musk, who also runs the electric vehicle company Tesla, is sending his Roadster into a long solar orbit stretching out to Mars.

Capital expenditures will continue to rise in 2018, to expand output at the Gigafactory battery plant in Nevada and continued investment in production capacity at Tesla's Fremont, California, plant, the company said.

Tesla posted its biggest-ever quarterly loss, but the loss was not as wide as analysts were expecting, and revenue just topped targets. Global automakers from Ford Motor Co to Volkswagen AG are cumulatively investing $90 billion in electrification over the next five years, with luxury models from Audi and Tata Motors Ltd's Jaguar due to hit showrooms this summer. The EV maker blamed high costs related to Model 3 production for the steep losses. The company also managed to burn far less cash in the fourth quarter, trimming it to $276.8 million in the quarter, compared with $1.42 billion in the third quarter and $969.8 million a year ago, he said.

Tesla has suffered losses in eight of the last nine quarters.

The company has been spending heavily as it rolls out the next generation of electric cars, the Model 3 sedan, a semi truck and other products. The company has received more than 400,000 pre-orders for the Model 3.
