Tesla will report fourth-quarter and full-year earnings next Wednesday. Analysts will be focused on whether the company will raise its forecast for how many Model S vehicles it expects to build this year.
The earnings report is the first of several potential catalysts for Tesla this year. Over the course of the next few months Tesla is expected to announce plans to build a "giga factory" to increase production of lithium-ion battery cells.
Tesla will also begin deliveries of Model S vehicles in China, which is expected to be a major growth market in the years to come for Tesla and other electric car companies.
