4 Things You Need to Know About Tesla Motors Inc.

Shares of electric-vehicle maker Tesla Motors Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA  )  were down today ahead of the release of its first-quarter-earnings report tomorrow. On today's "Stock of the Day", Motley Fool analyst Blake Bos takes a look at the current conversation about Tesla, and points out what investors should be watching for. 

Wall Street is focused on Tesla's financials, and analysts are looking for adjusted EPS of $0.074, revenue of just over $706 million, and estimates of $3.76 billion in revenue for 2014. Analysts also want to see production at Tesla trending toward 1,000 cars per week.

But what should Fools be on the watch for in tomorrow's report? According to Blake, highlights will include Tesla's new Model X, what sort of progress the company is making in China, and what Tesla's plans are for rolling its cars out to dealerships. On top of that, Blake will be on the lookout for any updates on Tesla's Gigafactory, which will be key to helping the company drive down costs and create a cheaper mass market electric vehicle.

    There are no plans for rolling out cars to dealerships.

    Other than a few vehicles used for test drives and service loaners Tesla Model S goes from factory to service center for final inspection/prep then to customer.
