Tesla acquired Solar City back in November, 2016 and since then people have been waiting to hear what Elon Musk’s plans are for it. Today, he finally spoke about the ongoing year and what lies ahead, and solar roofs seems to be an integral part of everything.
First off, the electric cars that company will launch this year, are going to feature optional solar roofs. And if you choose to purchase them, then you will be able to keep your vehicle charged at all times. This is incredibly helpful because finding charging stations is not as easy in some of the locations.
With solar roof’s addition, user’s lives will become a whole lot easier as they will be able to drive endlessly without worrying about running out of battery.
Elon Musk stated that despite being of great utility, solar roofs will not cost much and every one would be able to afford them. This is great news because people already have to pay a hefty amount for the electric car and if they are looking to get the optional solar roof, then it should come cheap.
Tesla is looking to implement solar roofs this year, and is hoping that it will become an all important feature going into 2018 and ahead.
