“We are excited about 2017, as we expect to see significant advances across our transport, energy generation and storage product lines. Most notably, the Model 3 and solar roof launches are on track for the second half of the year. However, since even a couple week shift in timing could have a meaningful impact on total deliveries and installs, we are focusing our guidance on the first half of the year,” said CEO Elon Musk.

“We expect to invest between $2 billion and $2.5 billion in capital expenditures ahead of the start of Model 3 production. We continue to focus on capital efficiency while also investing in battery cell, pack and energy storage production at Gigafactory 1. Tesla continues to execute against its mission of accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy, and we look forward to hitting the 2017 milestones that are critical to our long-term plan.”

Tesla's stock traded recently at $277.79, up about 1.6 percent after hours.
