Over time, air firmware and software updates that support additional features.
As of the end of 2019, our products and services have produced certain vehicle decorations for China in our Geely factory Shanghai, in addition, our team has expertise in light materials, considering the impact of quality on mileage, this is a very important feature of electric vehicles.
The Model S and Model X are made of lightweight aluminum body and chassis, with a variety of materials and production methods to help optimize the weight of the vehicle.
In addition, we have designed a Model 3 for mixed materials, which is both light and safe, and at the same time increases the cost
The effectiveness of this qualitymarket vehicle.
We are designing Model Y on the Model 3 platform and expect that Model Y will share about 75% of the components with Model 3, which we expect will reduce the production cost and time of Model Y cars.
Sales and marketing we continue to build a Tesla Supercharger network in North America, Europe, Asia and other markets to facilitate our customers, including supporting the long-term
Distance travel and ownership of the city.
Our Supercharger network is a strategic corporate initiative designed to provide fast charging solutions accessible to the public and remove barriers to wider adoption of electric vehicles due to perceived limited vehicle ranges
Tesla supercharger is an industrial grade high speed charger that charges much faster than other charging options, and we continue to develop our technology to provide us with faster charging time at a lower cost.
In order to meet the growing demand, the supercharger station usually has six to thirty superchargers and strategically follows
Driving routes and dense city centers allow Tesla owners to enjoy fast, reliable and ubiquitous charging through convenient, minimal stops.
It is free to use the Supercharger network, or a competitive fee is required.

Board systems with cellular connections allow us to diagnose and remedy many problems before looking at the vehicle.
When maintenance or service is required, the customer can arrange the service by contacting our Tesla service center, or our mobile service technicians can perform a series of services from the customer\'s home or other remote location.
Financial services certain items in our current financing projects outside North America provide customers with a resale value guarantee under which, these customers can choose to sell their vehicles to US on a predetermined future date, usually at the end of the term of the applicable loan or financing plan, for the pre-
Determined resale value.
In some markets, we also provide vehicle repurchase guarantees to financial institutions, which may require us

Geely factory 1 is being manufactured in stages.
Tesla, Panasonic and other partners are currently completing part of production.
Our current plan is to continue to expand the Gigabit plant in the next few years, so that its capacity greatly exceeds the capacity of about 500,000 vehicles per year announced when we first started developing, in addition, we have also increased our ability to make energy storage products.
We also announced that we may manufacture the Y-type at Gigafactory 1 and we intend to produce it in bulk by the end of 2020.
As a manufacturer, we have to make our own government plans, incentives and regulations for solar systems.
Proof that our vehicle meets all applicable FMVSS as well as NHTSA Bumper Standards or exemption before the vehicle can be imported or sold in the United StatesS.
Many FMVSS are suitable for our vehicles such as collision-
Requirements for adaptability, collision avoidance and requirements for electric vehicles.
We also need to comply with other federal laws administered by NHTSA, including CAFE standards, anti-theft bill requirements, consumer information labeling requirements, warranty claims early warning reporting requirements, on-site reporting, death and injury reports and Foreign recalls, as well as owner\'s manual requirements.

The production of risk factors and Model 3 may compromise our business prospects. The future business depends to a large extent on our plans to manufacture, sell and sell Model 3 cars. We offer these products at a lower price and we produce them in a much higher quantity than the S or X vehicles.
We started producing Model 3 in July 2017 and started delivering it to our customers, and since then our productivity has stabilized.
Certain trimming of Model 3 we have limited experience in manufacturing vehicles because we have recently achieved a large number and we expect Model 3 to grow further and succeed, we need to implement and improve efficiency and cost.
Effective manufacturing capabilities, processes and supply chains are necessary to support this quantity, including at the Geely plant in Shanghai.
We have adopted a higher degree of automation in the manufacturing process of Model 3 than before, and continue to implement additional automation.
In some cases, we have temporarily reduced the level of automation and introduced half of it.
Automated or manual processes that require additional labor costs.
As we continue to ramp up the production of the Tesla plant and start the initial phase of the production of Model 3 at the Shanghai-based processing plant, there may also be additional bottlenecks that we have to address quickly and pay the price --
Effective way.
In addition, our Model 3 production plan usually requires significant investment in cash and management resources, as we further advance our ramp and start production in new locations such as China in the future, we expect some additional resources to be deployed.
We will be able to maintain and further expand our
Mass production of Model 3 at Tesla factory without exceeding our estimated cost and our expected schedule;
We will be able to continue to expand Gigafactory 1 in a timely manner to produce high quality lithium-
The ion batteries will be integrated into the battery modules, finished battery packs and drive unit assemblies of Model 3, in part to support production in China, as the level of local procurement and manufacturing is gradually increasing, allows us to sell all the costs of Model 3 at the target gross profit margin;
We will be able to build and start production at more facilities in the future, such as the Geely factory in Shanghai, to support our Model 3 international ramp based on our estimated cost and schedule;
The equipment and process we have selected for Model 3 production will be able to accurately manufacture a large number of Model 3 vehicles within specified design tolerances and high quality;
We will be able to maintain suppliers of necessary components in accordance with the terms and conditions we can accept, and we will be able to obtain high
Provide high quality components in a timely and necessary quantity to support high
Mass production;
We will be able to attract, recruit, hire, train and retain skilled staff to run high on our plans
Batch production facilities supporting Model 3, including Tesla factory, gigabit factory 1 and gigabit factory Shanghai.
While we improve the production level of vehicles, we also need to continue to increase the sales and delivery of vehicles significantly.
While we have a plan to sell and deliver an increased number of vehicles, however, our experience in selling, selling and delivering higher volumes of vehicles is limited. we may face difficulties in achieving sales and delivery targets in both existing and expanded new markets, for example, in Europe and China, we will launch the Model 3 for the first time in 2019.
In particular, for the first time we target Model 3, a large population with a wide range of potential customers, where we have limited experience forecasting demand and pricing products.
When we produce many variations (
Including regional version)
According to our expectations of Model 3, if our forecast is inaccurate, according to the limitations of the vehicle production line and the long lead time for purchasing certain parts, we may not be able to generate sales that match the particular vehicle we have the ability to produce.

And concerns about our ability to survive in the future.
We rely on our suppliers, most of which are single
SOURCE suppliers, and the necessary components that these suppliers are unable to deliver our products at our schedule and at the price, quality level and quantity we can accept, or that we are unable to effectively manage them, it may have a significant adverse effect on our financial position and operational results.
Due to their failure to provide components that meet our quality control standards, we have also made a replacement.
Loss of any single or limited source supplier or disruption in the supply of components from these suppliers may result in changes in product design and delays in the delivery of products to customers, this can damage our relationship with our customers and lead to negative publicity, damage to our brand and material and adversely affected business, prospects, financial position and operating results.
For example, we may encounter some problems or delays to improve the localization level in China by local sourcing and manufacturing in our Geely factory Shanghai.
In addition, as our car production scale increases, we need to accurately predict, purchase, warehouse and transport to our manufacturing facilities components in a higher quantity.
If we are unable to accurately match the time and quantity of component purchases to our actual needs, or we are unable to successfully implement automation, inventory management, and other systems to accommodate the growing complexity of the supply chain, unexpected production disruptions, storage, transportation and writing can happen to us --
This may have a significant adverse effect on our financial position and operational results.
Future problems or delays in expanding gigabit Plant 1 or increasing operations there may have a negative impact on the production and profitability of our products, such as Model 3 and our energy storage products.
When we started to produce Model 3 in Shanghai, we partially supported the production of vehicles at the Shanghai Geely factory.
If we can\'t expand the scale of our business operations, in the process of our rapid development, including in the international community, we may not be able to effectively manage future growth and adapt to new conditions to successfully sell and serve our products.
Provide adequate sales, delivery, service and supercharger facilities in a timely manner, and our products and operations meet local requirements, local infrastructure, systems and processes required, and start the initial phase of the production of Model 3 at Shanghai Geely factory, cost increase, supply interruption or material shortage, especially lithium-
Ion batteries can damage our business.
Increased cost or reduced availability of materials used in batteries;
Due to quality problems or recalls from battery manufacturers, battery supply is interrupted, or any problems that may arise with batteries manufactured at our own facilities;
And the yen\'s exchange rate against the United States. S.
Dollars for our batteries.
Battery purchases for Model S and Model X and some raw materials for batteries used in Model 3 and energy storage products are currently denominated in yen.
The market we operate in is very competitive and our competition in these industries may not be successful.
We are currently facing competition from new and mature domestic and international competitors and expect to face competition from others in the future, including from companies with new technologies.
We plan to achieve sustained growth and demand by expanding and optimizing our retail, service and vehicle charging business, which will require a large amount of cash investment and management resources, and may not be able to meet expectations for additional sales, installation or service of our products or availability of publicly charged solutions.
In addition, the increasing number of Tesla cars will require us to continue to significantly increase the number of Supercharger stations and connectors around the world.
If we are not able to do this in a timely manner, our customers may not be satisfied, which may adversely affect our vehicle sales.
To bring our products in line with various international regulations and safety requirements as well as charging and other power infrastructure, to organize local operating entities, to establish, configure and manage the difficulties of foreign operations and to attract the challenges of customers, tax, regulations and licensing requirements of foreign governments, our ability to enforce contractual rights;
Trade restrictions, customs regulations, tariffs and price or foreign exchange controls, and foreign preferences for domestic products.
For example, in China, which is a key market for us, some products, such as cars made in the United StatesS.
Bound by the government\'s recent increase in tariffs.
Although this increase has been temporarily suspended, the tariff may remain unchanged for an uncertain period of time, further increase and/or cause consumers to delay or choose another car brand with lower or no tariffs in the future.
In addition, recently we have increased import taxes on certain parts used in products from China, which may increase our costs and have a negative impact on our operating results.
Our vehicles and energy storage products take advantage of lithium
Ion batteries that are observed to catch fire or spray smoke and flame, these events raise concerns that future events may lead to more concerns about batteries used in automotive applications.
Unavailability, reduction or cancellation or adverse decisions of the US government and economic incentivesS.
Foreign countries that support the development and adoption of electric vehicles, energy storage products or solar energy may have some impact on our product and service needs.
We have failed to achieve the expected benefits of our significant investment and commitment in photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing, including if we fail to comply with the terms of our agreement with the New York State University Research Foundation on our Gigafactory 2, may have a negative impact on our business.
During these 10 years, the state of New York\'s comprehensive capital, operating expenses, cost of goods sales and other costs
Within one year of completion of all construction and related infrastructure, arrival of manufacturing equipment and receipt of certain licenses and other specific items in Gigafactory 2.
If we fail in any year, our concept of compensation for all employees reflects the origin of our business and emphasizes fairness --
Based on rewards and benefits in order to align their incentives with long-term
Long-term interests of our shareholders
Each of our current equity incentive plans and employee stock purchase plans provides for a \"evergreen\" clause that allows our board of directors to increase annually under the prescribed limits, the number of shares-
Based on the rewards that our personnel may grant and the shares of our common stock.
These plans are currently due in December 2019 and we need to extend them or develop new plans in order to continue to compensate employees after they are due, which requires approval from our shareholders.
In addition, there is no guarantee that these plans will be extended or that future plans will contain evergreen terms, which means that we must seek and obtain approval from shareholders on a regular basis, in order to increase the number of awards that may be awarded in the future and the shares purchased under these plans.
If we are unable to obtain shareholder approval and compensate our personnel in accordance with our compensation philosophy, our ability to retain and hire qualified personnel will be negatively affected.
Any unauthorized control or manipulation of our product systems can lead to loss of confidence in us and our products and harm our business.
We have been the subject of such reports in the past.
Our products and services are subject to changing substantive regulations that we do not comply with can seriously compromise the results of our business and operations.
We may choose or be forced to carry out product recalls or take other similar actions, which may adversely affect our brand image and financial performance.
If our warranty reserve is not sufficient to cover future warranty claims for our products, our business, prospects, financial position and results of operations may be materially adversely affected.
The warranty reserve includes our management\'s best estimate of the estimated cost of repairing or replacing items during the warranty period.
These estimates are based on the following actual claims
Date and estimate of the nature, frequency and cost of future claims.
These estimates are uncertain in themselves, and our history or expected experience will change as well. In particular, regarding products such as Model 3 and solar roof that we have recently introduced and/or products that we expect to produce much more than in the past, may lead to significant changes in our warranty reserves in the future. Long-
The ability of the regular debt obligation to pay the principal and interest on a regular basis at maturity, or to make payment or repurchase requirements for our convertible notes, or to refinance our debt as per our needs or wishes, depending on how we perform in the future, it depends on the economic, financial, competitive and other factors that we cannot control.
Our business may not continue to generate sufficient cash flow from operations in the future to meet the losses of our existing liabilities and any future liabilities that we may generate and to make the necessary capital expenditures.
If we cannot generate such cash flow, we may need to adopt one or more alternatives, such as reducing or delaying investment or capital expenditure, selling assets, refinance or obtain additional equity capital on terms that may be onerous or highly diluted.
Our ability to refinance existing or future debt will depend on the capital market and our financial position at that time.
In addition, legal, regulatory or agreements that govern our future debt may limit our ability to pay.
We may not be able to participate in these activities on ideal conditions or at all, which may result in default of our existing or future debt, and have a significant adverse impact on our business, operational results and financial position.
Our premium secured assets, based on the revolving credit agreement, generate additional debt or issue guarantees, set a lien, buy back shares or make other restricted payments, and make certain voluntary advances to specific debts.
In addition, in some cases, we need to comply with a fixed fee coverage rate.
Due to these financing, our operations and prospects may have a negative impact on our main source of liquidation. Our current or future car manufacturing costs, any significant uncertainty or new significant strategic investments or refinancing of our significant consolidated debt, even if the terms of these debts do not require this.
We need sufficient funds to fund our ongoing operations, ramp vehicle production, continuing R & D projects, building sales, delivery and service centers, building and deploying supercars at gigaffactory 2 in Shanghai-Ji processing plant build and start production of Model 3, and invest in the tools and manufacturing capital needed to introduce new cars. if we can\'t raise extra funds when needed, the results of our financial operations, business and prospects may be adversely affected.
In addition, we use funds from third parties
Allow our customers to access our solar energy system with little or no upfront cost.
The availability of this financing depends on many factors, including the confidence of investors in the solar industry, the quality and combination of our customer contracts, any regulatory changes that affect our existing customer contract economy, legal changes (
Including tax law)
Risks or government incentives related to these financing, and our ability to compete with other renewable energy companies for a limited number of potential investors.
Moreover, while interest rates remain low, they have risen in recent times.
If the rate of return required by investors increases due to an increase in interest rates, this will reduce the present value of the potential customer payment stream, so our financing structure increases our capital costs.
If we can\'t make a third offer-

Management\'s Discussion and Analysis of the financial situation and results of operation mode 3 is the best --
Sales of advanced vehicles in the US in 2018.
The vehicle that the Model 3 customer deals to US continues to indicate that there is a broader addressable market for the vehicle compared to the existing owner of mid-
Size of the premium sedan.
In addition, because we only provide long-termrange, mid-
So far, we believe that with the introduction of cheaper variants, we will see an increase in demand, for example, the basic price we intend to offer in the future is $35,000, and additional financing options.
We started producing Model 3 for Europe and China in January 2019 and we think each model has a larger medium size
A bigger market for luxury cars than North America, we have so far delivered the Model 3 sedan exclusively.
We also believe that in terms of battery and power system technology, we have an advantage over our competitors because of the EPA-
It is expected that the rated range per kWh will be better than other electric vehicles that will be launched in the near future, and we have the ability to pass through the superthe-
Air software update.
We are producing variants (
Including regional version)
However, according to our demand for Model 3, our production capacity is limited and the lead time associated with purchasing certain parts is very long.
If our Model 3 demand expectations prove inaccurate, or we have encountered delays in introducing additional variants of the plan, including when we start offering Model 3 in new markets, we may not be able to produce sales in a timely manner that match the particular vehicle we have the ability to produce.
We may also be affected by trade policies, political uncertainties and the economic cycle, which are related to the geographical regions where we operate.
Car sales in the automotive industry are also often cyclical in many markets, which may cause us to face greater volatility in expanding and adjusting our operations and retail strategies.
In addition, the federal tax credit for purchasing qualified electric vehicles in the United StatesS.
The price of any Tesla car delivered in the first or second quarter of 2019 is reduced to $3,750 and will be further reduced to $1,875 per Tesla car delivered in 2019 or the fourth quarter, each Tesla car delivered thereafter was $0.
We believe in this stage.
May pull some of the vehicle demand into 2018 and may produce a similar pull
Forward on 2019, before every further reduction in the federal tax credit.
In the long run, we do not expect to have a meaningful impact on our sales in the USS.
Because we believe that even without incentives, each of our models offers compelling advice.
Globally, we are also working to, in some cases, have started, increase the value proposition and affordability of the products we offer to our customers, and provide other financing over time
For example, we intend to introduce rental options for Model 3.
Advance certain pruning of Model 3 for our customers-
Infrastructure remains a top priority.
Delivery of vehicles and related logistics to customers is a challenge during 2018, but we continue to improve these processes to maximize customer satisfaction, including the purchase of our own carshauling trucks.
We are also expanding our service capabilities for a fast-growing fleet of customers, including increasing our service locations and mobile service fleet to expand the service to two-
Transfer operations in the service center as needed and optimize our parts distribution network.
To increase the convenience of our customers, we have also updated the Tesla mobile app to schedule service appointments.
With further growth in Tesla car sales, we plan to continue to open new Tesla retail stores, service centers and body stores around the world, and plan to continue to expand our mobile service fleet.
We also plan to continue to significantly increase the number of Superchargers and destination charging connectors worldwide and develop our Supercharger technology to achieve faster charging times while reducing related costs.
However, in order to deliver more and more vehicles, we must stabilize and maintain our delivery and logistics model, and we have limited experience in this area, especially in markets outside North America.
In addition, if we encounter unexpected reliability problems with our growing customer vehicles (especially Model 3), it may put a burden on our service capabilities.
On March 2018, our shareholders approved a new 10-
Elon Musk\'s annual CEO performance award depends on achieving market value and operational milestones (

So we may have a lot of extracash stock-
Compensation fees based on the duration of the award, as each operational milestone is likely to be attributed.
We offer a resale value guarantee or similar purchase
Feedback the terms to certain customers who purchase vehicles and finance vehicles through one of our designated commercial bank partners.
We also provide certain rental partners with resale value guarantees related to car sales.
At present, the two projects are only available in certain international markets. .
We also offer leasing services through leasing partners in certain jurisdictions.
We are at risk of residual value through our exclusive financing entity and leasing partner leasing.
In addition, for leases provided directly from our exclusive financing entity, we take the credit risk of our customers.
We plan to continue to expand our financing products, including our leasing financing options and funding sources that support them, and support the overall financing needs of our customers.
If we are unable to arrange such options for our customers under attractive terms, our sales, financial results and cash flow may be negatively affected.

Therefore, we confirm the settlement and legal costs of $30.
The year ended December 31, 2018 was 1 million per cent.
By the end of 2018, these expenses had been basically paid.
Under the income tax 2019, we will continue to use our increasing experience and lessons from past and present product ramps to do so at the level of capital efficiency spent per dollar, we expect this to be much higher than the historical level.
For example, based on our experience using ramping Model 3 at the Tesla plant, we expect that the capital expenditure of the Model 3 manufacturing capacity unit in Shanghai, Geely plant, will be lower than our production line in Fremont.
Similarly, based on such experience and the substantial commonality of components between Model Y and Model 3 that we expect, we believe that the production speed of type Y will be significantly faster than that of type 3, the cost per unit of manufacturing capacity will be lower than the Type 3 in Fremont.
Taking into account the new product pipeline currently planned, as well as the new product pipeline that is consistent with our current strategy of using our partners to manufacture batteries, and considering all other infrastructure growth and expansion in gigafuto1, we currently estimate that capital spending in Shanghai will be between $2. 5 to $3.
In the next two fiscal years, billions a year.
In addition, we expect that the cash we generate from our core business is usually enough to cover our future capital expenditures and pay us close

25% convertible senior notes due on March 1, 2019)
Although we may choose to seek other financing channels.

As always, we constantly assess our capital expenditure needs and may decide that it is best to raise more to fund the rapid growth of our business.
At least enough liquidity in the next 12 months.
A large part of our future spending is to fund our growth, and we can adjust our capital and operating expenses through the operations department, includes future body shops, mobile service fleets and supercharger networks for our products, retail and service locations. Long-
