Ellon Musk drops hints of hush hush Tesla 2.0 masterplan

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has taken to Twitter to drop some tantalising hints as to his future plans for electric car manufacturer Tesla, just weeks after agreeing a takeover of renewable energy firm Solar City.

In an effort to regain the initiative after weathering a series of torrid headlines denouncing that deal, as well as two seperate crashes involving Tesla vehicles, an ambiguous Musk states that he is ‘Creating a seamlessly integrated Tesla battery and solar power product that looks beautiful’.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is currently investigating the crashes involving Tesla vehicles including an incident where a Tesla Model X collided with a motorway guard rail, although the business refutes suggestions that the autopilot function may have played a part in that crash.

An earlier 7 May crash in Florida occurred whilst the car was operating in autopilot mode.
