After Tesla’s release of its successful 2020 second-quarter (Q2) report, delivering results and smashing analysts’ expectations, CEO Elon Musk teased the public of the electric autonomous vehicle (EAV) manufacturer’s future plans to release a set of new Tesla models in the future.
In a report by website Electrek, Musk shared with reporters at a forum his take on the matter after the company’s announcement of its 2020 Q2 report.
He declined to divulge a lot of details at the launch, commenting that such pronouncements are reserved for the official product launch events. He hinted that the company will gear into making a ‘compact vehicle’ and a ‘higher capacity vehicle’ of some sort.
These statements are in line with reports done earlier this year surrounding the company’s future Tesla models. During one of Musk’s visit to the company’s factory in China, he announced their plans for producing a Tesla model for an international version. Drawings and concepts of a compact car design were also released.
As for the ‘higher capacity vehicle’, reports show that the company is eyeing to produce a 12-seater electric van that’ll be primarily used by another of Musk’s companies, The Boring Company, in its Loop Project.
However, we may not be able to see these new models in the near future for they are intended to be released after the company’s Cybertruck. The Cybertruck will be the company’s last model ‘for a while’ but promised to develop new ones in the coming time.
