With the new batteries, the American automaker’s electric vehicles are expected to significantly increase their range. Batteries with increased capacity will help them in this. Innovative batteries are mentioned in the announcement of the upcoming Battery Day event.

In mid-September, as part of Battery Day, Tesla is going to present upgraded batteries for its electric cars.

According to Elon Musk, the company plans to put on stream the production of new batteries with a longer life cycle and an increase in specific energy consumption by 50%. This will happen, according to the estimates of the founder of Tesla, in the next three to four years.

At the same time, the Electrek portal became interested in the background of the Internet page, where the registration form for Battery Day is located. If you play with contrast, you can see a whole range of nanowires or nanotubes. A hint of a new battery? This assumption, by the way, seems to be true. For example, Amprius Technologies is working on a lithium battery with an anode of 100% silicon nanowires. Such a battery, according to rumors, boasts an increased energy storage density – the same 50 percent when compared to conventional batteries. Tesla promises something similar to its fans.

It is interesting that Amprius is somehow connected with Tesla, albeit not directly. So, both companies are located in the neighborhood. Another point is that one of the leading Amprius developers in 2019 was accepted into the ranks of Tesla employees.

Earlier, we said that Tesla owners would develop their own dating application. Only those who own an electric car of the brand will be able to register in it. To do this, you will need to make photo confirmation.
