Tesla to quickly reopen Gigafactory New York to make ventilators for COVID-19 patients

Tesla to quickly reopen Gigafactory New York to make ventilators for COVID-19 patients

CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla is going to attempt to quickly reopen Gigafactory New York in order to make ventilators for COVID-19 patients in the state. Several hospitals in the US are finding themselves in need of ventilators to help save patients who are more badly affected by the coronavirus. In previous comments over the last month, Musk has been skeptical that there’s going to be a need for more ventilators. The CEO believes that we “may have passed the inflection point for US cases.” However, that’s excluding New York, which has been hit harder by the virus than any other...

Tesla Model 3 leads industry in value retention, barely loses any value after a year

Tesla Model 3 leads industry in value retention, barely loses any value after a year

Tesla Model 3 is leading the industry in value retention by barely losing any value after a year and half the depreciation rate as the second-best vehicle, according to a new study. Last year, CEO Elon Musk claimed that Tesla vehicles are now “appreciating assets” due to their self-driving capability. He claims that once Tesla achieves full self-driving capability, its vehicles will become revenue-generating assets for their owners, and as the system improves, Tesla will be increasing the price of the self-driving capability, resulting in increased value for all cars. At one point, Musk...

Elon Musk: Tesla electric 'Cybertruck' pickup is our best product ever

Tesla quietly acquires battery production expert in push to make its own cells

Tesla quietly acquires battery production expert in push to make its own cells

Tesla has quietly acquired a battery manufacturing and engineering company based in Canada called ‘Hibar Systems’ in a push to start making its own battery cells. There’s no detail available about the acquisition other than Tesla listing Hibar Systems as a subsidiary in its official filings with the Canadian Federal lobby registration, as first reported by Canada’s Electric Autonomy. The manufacturing company wasn’t on Tesla’s subsidiary list in July and now it appeared on it on October 2 – meaning that the acquisition happened in the last 4 months. Hibar has since gone dark, killed its...

Tesla launches solar rental service, can get a solar panel system for $50 per month

Tesla launches solar rental service, can get a solar panel system for $50 per month

Tesla is launching today a solar rental service – a brand new way to get a solar panel system on your roof for as little as $50 per month without any long-term contract. SolarCity pioneered new models to sell solar power systems with no upfront cost by leasing them to homeowners and selling them the electricity it generates, like a regular electric utility. The model created impressive growth, but it required them to pay for the costly systems upfront on most installations, which weighed heavy on their financials. When Tesla acquired SolarCity back in 2016, it gradually moved away from...

Tesla launches its Megapack, a new massive 3 MWh energy storage product

Tesla is launching today its ‘Megapack’, a massive new energy storage product that combines up to 3 MWh of storage capacity and a 1.5 MW inverter.

Tesla wrote about it in a blog post: “Megapack significantly reduces the complexity of large-scale battery storage and provides an easy...
