Well, it looks as though Musk plans to take the automotive company in a completely new direction.
In 2006 Musk revealed a similarly cryptic message on a blog which eventually led to the publication of plans for the Tesla roadster, the Model S sedan and the Model 3 sedan.
Noting that the sale volumes of Tesla cars were only 115,000 electric cars in 2015, which constituted just 0.7 percent of total United States vehicle sales, the WSJ report notes the Elon Musk's Tesla master plan will have something to address that.
Last week, The Country Caller discussed that the automaker labelled a recent Fortune article, which said that Tesla had deliberately chosen to not inform the authorities about the crash, as "misleading". By expanding into solar energy with this acquisition, Tesla's goal of building a sustainable-energy future becomes possible.
After a tough few weeks for Tesla, Elon Musk says he has something big up his sleeve. He said he hoped to publish details this week.
Earlier this month, Tesla admitted there was a second accident with a Tesla vehicle driving on Autopilot.
Musk previously published a similar message online around 10 years' ago in which he unveiled some early details of two then-forthcoming Tesla vehicle models, as well as addressing common EV concerns about battery range and power plant emissions.
The Wall Street Journal notes that after the public disclosure of the fatal incident on June 30, Tesla shares rose nearly 2 percent, meaning it could be hard for the SEC to argue that investors were harmed by disclosure or lack thereof. The tweet comes as Tesla as the NHTSA and NTSB both indicated they're investigating a fatal accident involving a 2015 Model S that was operating in Autopilot mode at the time of the crash.
On the other hand, Tesla Motors has explained it considered the accident was "not material to the value of Tesla", and reminded everyone that a auto maker does not have to notify investors of every or any fatal accident that occurs in one of its models. Tesla has yet to do so, and its role in last month's fatal crash of an OH man has raised new questions about the safety of its technology.
