Tesla Model 3: Company to reveal 'unexpected' product next week

11 October

Speculation is growing that Tesla is to reveal more details about its Model 3 car after chief executive Elon Musk tweeted that an "unexpected" product was on its way.                                                                            

The Model 3 was revealed in a pre-production prototype form at the end of March, with Musk later promising a "big" event before the end of 2016 to go over the final production version in detail.

Part two is expected to unveil the final exterior as well as all information on the cabin, technology and, perhaps, specific pricing and options.

However, as Tesla fans are already on tenterhooks waiting for the big reveal, none of this would be particularly "unexpected", says Alphr. Instead, the company could be debuting a home product, charging technologies or even a new vehicle.

Electrek says it's entirely possible we could get new information about the Model 3, but it predicts Monday's event will be for Autopilot 2.0. The new system will enable level 3 autonomous driving and make fully autonomous level 4 self-driving cars a possibility in the near future.

The site is hopeful Autopilot 2.0 won't just be for new Teslas such as the Model 3 and will be offered as a retrofit upgrade too.

The Verge, Musk's tweet about an event on the 28 October, between Tesla and newly acquired Solar City, will be the unveiling of a solar roof with integrated batteries for homes.
