Elon Musk Teases Additional Details For Tesla Battery Day Event

In May, it became known that Tesla had filed a patent for a new battery, a cell with a tabless electrode. The company has long sought to improve battery performance for its vehicles and other applications.

Elon Musk teased new details about the upcoming Tesla Battery Day, elaborating on long-term production plans for the company.

According to Musk, Tesla is planning to increase battery cell purchases, but high-volume production is not expected until 2022.

“We intend to increase, not reduce battery cell purchases from Panasonic, LG & CATL (possibly other partners too). However, even with our cell suppliers going at maximum speed, we still foresee significant shortages in 2022 & beyond unless we also take action ourselves”, Tesla CEO tweeted Monday.
