Tesla shares fell by around 1.5% in pre-market trading on Thursday after the company reported a mixed set of fourth-quarter results.
The electric automaker reported a record quarterly loss despite achieving a substantial jump in revenue.
Losses came to $675.4m for the final three months of 2017, up from $121.3m in the prior year´s quarter.
At the same time, revenues rose to $3.29bn from $2.28bn.
Analysts took some comfort from the fact that Tesla did not use its fourth-quarter shareholder letter to warn of yet another delay to production targets for its new Model 3 electric car.
Difficulties surrounding Model 3 production have weighed on the shares over recent months.
“We continue to target weekly Model 3 production rates of 2,500 by the end of Q1 and 5,000 by the end of Q2,” said Tesla in the latest update.
Delays in production largely attributed to battery issues meant just 1,550 Model 3 cars were delivered in the fourth quarter.
Tesla had previously been expected to be delivering somewhere in the region of between 4,000 to 5,000 Model 3´s in the quarter.
