Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the Battery Day event has been postponed again

Tesla’s highly anticipated Battery Day event is being pushed back and could coincide with an electronic carmaker’s shareholder meeting, according to CEO Elon Musk.

At the event, Tesla is expected to unveil a new low-cost, long-lasting battery that will appear in the Chinese Model 3 later this year or early 2021 before it hits other markets like North America. A “million mile” battery will use little of any cobalt, which increases the cost of an electric car battery and will include chemical additives, materials and coating properties that will enable it to store more energy for longer.

Battery Day was originally scheduled to take place in late May, but Kasturi tweeted that due to the low attendance expected, Tesla planned to release a webcast for the event in June, a private event a few months later.

However, now it looks like the Battery Day event will be further delayed. Asked if there would be a cyber truck at the Tesla shareholder meeting scheduled for early July, Kastuk said the meeting would probably be postponed to at least August.

Yes, but we have to postpone the annual shareholder meeting, yet no big meeting is allowed between July and July. Not sure about the new date, but probably guessing a month or more later.

Then, in response to a question on whether the delay in the shareholder meeting would affect Battery Day, Kasturi said the two events could be held together.

Perhaps it is better to combine them, since they are converted in time. I am hopeful we can announce a date after the 4th week of July.

Kasturi further revealed that the venue of the incident would probably be in Fremont, California, which became the focus of controversy after CEO Almeida County decided to reopen the opportunity in May.
