2019 will be a critical year for @Tesla - here's what to expect from the automaker…
CEO Elon Musk's all-electric automaker will enter 2019 having produced and sold more vehicles than ever and the company could be well on its way to a half-million in cars delivered by the end of the year.
#ElonMusk will also be facing potential twin headwinds in 2019: An economic slowdown in the US; and the first stages of the 2020 national election. If the US auto market slips into a downturn, then #Tesla won't be spared some pain.
There's good news on the horizon, however, as @Tesla prepares to unveil its Model Y crossover SUV, along with some other new vehicles, including a rumored pickup truck.
Here's a month-by-month look forward to Tesla's big events and news for 2019:

#JANUARY: Tesla reports fourth-quarter and full-year vehicle delivery numbers.
FEBRUARY: Tesla reports fourth-quarter and full year earnings.

Regardless of the bottom line, Tesla's topline revenue should continue to surge. For the full year of 2019, the company could bring in close to $30 billion.
MARCH: Tesla could reveal the Model Y crossover SUV — and pay off convertible bonds.
APRIL: We should have a good sense of what's going on with Tesla new factory in Shanghai, China.
MAY: We should have a pretty good idea of whether Tesla has enough cash to finish out 2019 — or whether a capital raise is in order.
JUNE: Tesla will enter its first real summer selling season.
JULY: Will Tesla finally escape production hell?
AUGUST: Imagine the impossible — no news from Tesla!

If Tesla executes in the first half of 2019, Musk & Co. could experience their first ... BORING AUGUST!

To be honest, that would be welcome.
SEPTEMBER: We'll get a chance to evaluate Tesla's new board of directors.

Thanks to Musk's undisciplined 2018, Tesla shook up its board, deposing Musk as Chairman and adding Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison as a director.
OCTOBER: Tesla will report third-quarter 2019 earnings.
NOVEMBER: Tesla Fremont factory could be showing signs of extreme stress.
DECEMBER: Tesla could be building and selling over 500,000 vehicles.
