It’s Tesla’s Battery Day, and unless you’re one of the precious few who scored tickets to the event, you’re probably going to be tuning in to the live stream like the rest of us. And honestly, isn’t this really the safest way to watch the big event?
Tesla’s battery presentation is expected to commence immediately after the company’s annual shareholder meeting. The two events were originally planned for separate days but were consolidated and rescheduled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
What to expect at Tesla’s Battery Day event
At the shareholder meeting, owners of Tesla stock are slated to vote and voice opinions on a number of matters, like whether the company should start paying for traditional advertisements. Many of Tesla’s board members are also up for reelection, including chairwoman Robyn Denholm, who took over after Musk was banned from chairing any publicly traded company for three years in 2018 as a result of a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
At the battery event, Tesla is expected to reveal a number of advancements in its battery tech that could give it an even greater advantage over other companies pursuing electric vehicles. Musk said that Tesla will offer attendees a tour of the company’s “cell production system,” which is likely a reference to its secretive “Roadrunner” project to bring down the cost of making batteries while increasing volume.
Like past Tesla events, a live stream will be available on Tesla’s website, now also available in the YouTube embed at the top of this post. The shareholder meeting will be at 1:30PM PT / 4:30PM ET, with the battery event to follow immediately after.
