The announcement through a tweet became international news almost immediately as people now expect something amazing to come from the company on October 17 th. Are you among those who are already speculating about what the big revelation could be?
Speculation on What It Could Be
Some industry insiders believe that Tesla will unveil additional hardware to its vehicles including radars and cameras. In fact, they even say that each corner of a Tesla car will have radar units in addition to a triple camera system on the car’s front.
All of these additions, if true, would be an attempt at improving the autopilot function in Tesla cars. If this speculative thought is true, then the possibility of retrofitting other Tesla cars with these devices is also possible. Other industry insiders say that the big reveal has to do with Powerpack and Powerwall products manufactured by the company.
People can only guess about what Tesla will unveil. However, no one knows what it is apart from Elon Musk and those involved in the project. Here are some of Twiiter’s best guesses.
Other Announcements by Musk on Twitter
Elon Musk who has 5.52 million followers on Twitter also announced that Tesla and SolarCity plans to unveil a solar roof on October 28, 2016. Musk also tweeted that the two companies would not finance this project through debt or equity.
That sounds like a good idea because both companies seem to be doing well. For example, the number of cars sold by Tesla since its inspection surpassed the 160,000 mark in September 2016. Today, these vehicles are the second most plugin cars in the world.
It is also important to note that Musk bought SolarCity for about $2.6 billion in the third quarter of this year. His investment in this firm is a testament to his commitment when it comes to producing clean and affordable energy to meet the world’s needs.
