Tesla pushes back product unveiling two days, needs more ‘refinement’



Tesla originally planned to unveil a new product on Monday, but those plans have changed, as the product apparently isn’t quite ready.

“Moving the Tesla announcement to Wednesday,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote in a tweet on Sunday. “Needs a few more days of refinement.”

What refinement, or even for what product, is unclear. Musk previously tweeted the product is “unexpected by most”.

Some have speculated Tesla plans to announce Autopilot 2.0, the next generation of its semi-autonomous driving feature on the Model S, Model X, and perhaps Model 3.

Tesla and SolarCity shareholders don’t vote on the proposed $2.6 billion merger until October 27. However, Musk could go against some investors’ wishes and announce a product with SolarCity before gaining shareholder approval.
