Tesla has been a topic of great discussion lately. Their 4 primary vehicles are the Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y. Tesla will soon have 4 new products, doubling their range. There they are.
Elon Musk even said during one of the latest earnings calls that Tesla could not offer new vehicle models because Tesla’s overall vehicle output would decline. It makes sense to me. It takes time and effort to learn to build a new vehicle. It also costs space, people and materials, which other vehicles would take away.
One of the new products is something that 90% of people in the US use every day. This is an HVAC system. This is used for air filtering and removes 99.7% of dust, pollen, mold and bacteria. The impact on the range of newer Tesla models is negligible. Tesla will eventually make these for homes. Tesla could also make an HVAC system that saves energy, cleans the air and can even create clean water.
Portable Solar Trailer
The next product is a solar range extender trailer. This is a portable addition to a Tesla vehicle with extendable solar panels that can then charge your Tesla vehicle. It’s like having a mini farm with solar panels. There are 240V outlets to send power to EVs. Obviously this is a prototype, but this is a product that would be incredibly useful for an EV.
A range extender for the Cybertruck could generate a range of 15 miles per day, and retractable solar wings could add 30 to 40 miles per day.
Elon Musk has expressed an interest in having a Tesla Robovan and is something Elon Musk has mentioned many times before. He said Tesla is definitely going to make an electric van. He said the van would also be designed to help people with disabilities get on and off easily.
At the Cyber Rodeo event last spring, he said Tesla was making a special robotic axi for ride-sharing and that the design would be futuristic.
This one product is so important to Tesla that Elon Musk has said it is the most important product Tesla has developed. The Optimus robot is aimed at reducing the burden of the global labor market and increasing the global economy.
With Tesla’s Optimus robot, you get a human-assisted robot that has the same power as Tesla’s FSD software. It may look crazy, but it will bring features to people of the next generation. It will do the boring and repetitive things that people don’t want to do.
Elon Musk is considering programming Optimus to have a unique personality and be a companion of sorts. It could be an incredible friend like C3PO or R2D2. It can lift about 45 pounds and run about 5 miles per hour.
What do you think of these new Tesla products? Will the Tesla Bot become bigger than the car industry?
