We couldn't help but notice Musk dropped some interesting hints during his keynote presentation Thursday night.
While he was talking about Tesla Energy, he started referring to the Gigafactory – the massive battery plant the company is building in Nevada – as "Gigafactory 1." Later, Musk said "there will need to be many gigafactories in the future"
He then hinted that Tesla may not be the only company building such battery plants, saying other companies may be able to run "gigafactory-class operations of their own."
Musk is known for dropping subtle hints like these in passing, and we could parse all of this in a number of ways, but suffice it to say Tesla is not done yet, and there are certainly more innovations to come.
Tesla Energy is the newest in a series of offerings from the company. It's been on something of a new product blitz lately. A little more than six months ago, Musk unveiled the super-fast Model S P85D – a 691 horsepower, all-wheel-drive monster that does 0-to 60 mph in about 3 seconds. Earlier this month, he brought out the Model S 70D, a cheaper version of the flagship sedan (it starts at $67, 500), with a longer-range battery than its predecessor and the new all-wheel-drive, dual motor platform.
