Battery Day moved to 22nd, now live online
Tesla’s events always a big deal
One of the biggest events for Tesla is the company’s Battery Day, which was set to be held way back in May or June. Now, it’s finally set for late September, and the tech company/automaker will be live streaming to the world for everyone to see what kind of power it has in store for us.
Battery Day was already set for the 15th of next month but has now been pushed back to the 22nd. And if you can’t wait to see what Tesla has in store, you’ll be able to watch the event as it happens. It’ll follow the 2020 Tesla Annual Meeting, a shareholder event that will be broadcast starting 1:30 pm Pacific Daylight Time on September 22.
What do we expect the electric automaker and charismatic CEO Elon Musk to show off for the day?
Well, Elon has been talking on Twitter about 400 Wh/kg batteries, a level of energy storage 50 percent more than current levels, that could launch the company ahead of the competition. On the other hand, he’s also saying it is probably 3-4 years out, so maybe not an announcement for next month.
Musk has also previously said that it would start using lithium iron phosphate batteries in some China-built cars, but that’s a less energy-dense option than the company’s most advanced nickel-cobalt-aluminum cells expected for the Semi.
Whatever Tesla has planned, we’re sure it’ll be big, showy, and talked about for weeks after. So tune in or wait a few minutes longer for us to give you all the good bits.
