As our chart illustrates, Tesla plans to invest $2.0 to $2.5 billion in capital expenditures, i.e. property and equipment purchases, in the first half of 2017 alone, potentially doubling last year’s cap ex spending before the Model 3’s planned production start in July.

While Tesla did hold $3.4 billion in cash and cash equivalents at the end of 2016, a little financial cushion won’t hurt considering the challenging Model 3 launch ahead and the company’s chronically negative cash flows from operating and investing activities.

This chart shows the rapid increase in Tesla's capital expenditures.
