Update 04/22/15: Tesla Home Battery and Utility Battery Announced
So what is Tesla introducing? There are several possibilities. The most likely is a battery pack for homes. Elon Musk talked about this project last year. He said according to Forbes in an earnings call: “We are trying to figure out what would be a cool stationary (battery) pack, Musk said. “Some will be like the Model S pack: something flat, 5 inches off the wall, wall mounted, with a beautiful cover, an integrated bi-directional inverter, and plug and play.”
An efficient home battery pack could be charged via solar panels and release power on demand.
Another possibility would be ebikes. An electric Tesla bicycle would be an easy thing to make for Tesla’s designers and engineers. The third possibility could a electric motorcycle or scooter.
Tesla is pretty good at keeping new projects secret. It is likely that we will not hear anything about the new Tesla product until the event at the end of April.
