Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk hyped the company’s upcoming “Battery Day” Friday, promising “many exciting things.”
The event, which was delayed for months and rescheduled because of the Covid-19 pandemic, is intended to inform investors on the company’s latest developments. Tesla had previously teased the event as a “Powertrain and Battery Investor Day.” Musk later said that the event will primarily focus on batteries.
But, given that five months have passed since the originally scheduled date, Tesla may have considerably more to announce. That’s after Musk said in April that “there’s a lot to talk about” regarding the company’s battery research and development.
Tesla watchers have speculated that the company may give details on a homegrown battery cell manufacturing process that will offer more efficiency at a lower cost. The company has reportedly been conducting research and development at a facility near its Fremont, Calif. factory.
Battery Day, scheduled for September 22, will be mostly a virtual event, except for a few people in attendance.
