Every March 1 Tesla hosts one of the most important events of the year marked in red: the EV and high-tech community is used to Elon Musk bringing a major announcement with every public appearance; but according to some experts, in recent years Investor Day has somehow lost weight, allegedly in the absence of major innovations and breakthroughs. After a complicated 2022 with so many ups and downs, everything points to the fact that tomorrow, March 1, the public will learn a lot of news about what Tesla has up its sleeve. In that sense, Teslascope has shared a few hints and predictions.
Musk knows that he needs to bring back the original essence and magic of the company: while last year was in fact the most successful year in company history, with more than a million units sold, shares also fell significantly in the face of much-challenged direction. Numerous investors asked for the CEO's head, but for the moment the Texas tycoon has not moved from his chair. Elon Musk now apparently wants to take advantage of Investor Day to hit the table: It is expected to be the most significant event in recent years.
Teslascope is a company specialized in everything related to the Tesla brand. On many occasions they have been the first to announce important news from the Austin company thanks to many contacts, both internal and external. Having collected and analyzed all the information that has been made available so far, one thing is clear: many changes are coming. Important launches in all senses, from technology to brand new products, going through what they consider the most important announcement in years.
First let's go with the news that we can already guess somehow: the Tesla Model 3 is the company's most successful model, and after several years on the market in 2023 we will most probably see a relaunch. Tesla doesn't want to use the word restyling, but it is actually what it´s going to be: with slight changes at the body level, the biggest updates will focus on the interior. Several test units have already been seen in the development phase, but now we know that it will have a triple band GPS, among other details. The Tesla Model Y could also announce a facelift, although in this case the information is more concise and, for the moment, we have not seen any camouflaged unit circulating.
Next up is the software suite that's been driving everyone, well, quite literally.Full Self-Driving Beta and the much anticipated V11 update!The next Full Self-Driving Beta build will be released within the 2023.2 software branch and include a collection of general bug fixes,… https://t.co/N1EffLlGJW— Teslascope (@teslascope) February 23, 2023
Regarding technology, Musk will announce the production of Hardware 4, something that cannot be considered a great novelty either, since it is something that we have known for a long time. In parallel, the FSD Beta 11 Pack will be introduced; Tesla engineers are finalizing the details for the day of the event, but as we anticipated long time ago, the new support program will include important security and handling updates. The rollout should happen quickly after the announcement, so we'll soon find out how the cars respond to the improvements.
Last but not least, Teslascope ends its thread with a big mystery. According to them, Elon Musk will make the most significant announcement of the last Investor Days. Obviously, social media and news networks have begun to speculate about it: some affirm that it will be the official preview of the expected 25,000 dollars Tesla compact car, the Model 2 (or Model C or Model Q, nobody knows for sure yet). Others point to Elon Musk stepping down as CEO to make way for a successor, a decision that would please some of the company's investors.
And to end this thread with a bang...! @elonmusk will make one of the most significant Tesla announcements in many years at Investor Day on March 1st.Whether attending in person or watching the stream online, you will absolutely want to clear your schedule.— Teslascope (@teslascope) February 23, 2023
Indeed, Tesla Investor Day tomorrow is poised to be a historic event. With expectations running high ahead of the event, we can expect some major announcements across all areas of the company, from product launches and technology updates to the biggest announcement of the year - whatever it may be. All eyes will be on Musk to see if he can deliver on the hype and make Tesla Investor Day something to remember. With so much to look forward to, everyone should keep their eyes peeled to see how the day unfolds.
