Tesla announced on Thursday that it will publish its third quarter earnings for 2017 on Wednesday, November 1. CEO Elon Musk is expected to provide updates on the company’s progress with the Tesla Model 3 rollout, and he may provide some hints as to how future projects like the Tesla semi truck are coming along.

When the markets close, Tesla will issue a press release detailing its performance for that quarter, sent out alongside a detailed breakdown that should provide in-depth stats around company performance. After that, Tesla will hold a question and answer session where analysts will be able to jump in and grill Musk further.

These sessions provide some juicy tidbits about Tesla’s future plans. In previous calls, we’ve learned that the Model 3 has been designed for mass production, and when the vehicle is set to enter production. This call will be an opportunity for Tesla to update the public on how the rollout is going, after some turbulent results as the company fights to ramp up production levels.
