Electric car giant Tesla (TSLA), reported its Q3 earnings after the bell on Wednesday, missing analysts’ expectations on revenue. Here are the most important numbers from the report.

Q3 Revenue: $21.45 billion versus $22.09 billion expected

Q3 Adjusted EPS: $1.05 versus $1.01 expected

Shares of the automaker fell more than 5% following the announcement.

The company says it still expects to see 50% average annual growth rate on vehicle deliveries for the year. The automaker also said it believes it has enough liquidity to continue to build out its roadmap.

Still, Tesla says that it’s facing year-over-year headwinds from the increased cost of raw materials and inefficiencies at its Gigafactory Berlin. A strengthening dollar is also impacting Tesla sales abroad, cutting into profitability.

In Q3 2021, the company produced 237,823 vehicles and delivered 241,300.

As for the company’s future products, Tesla says it expects to roll out its semi to Pepsi in December, and that it will begin producing its Cybertruck in Texas after ramping its Model Y production.
