Tesla Motors to replace old lithium ion batteries with new silicon version
Tesla Motors has confirmed that it will replace older lithium ion battery packs with a new silicon battery type.
The announcement comes just days after the electric car maker confirmed that its lithium ion vehicles would be replaced by electric cars in the second half of the year.
The company’s announcement follows a report from The Wall Street Journal which indicated that Tesla will switch to the new silicon-based battery pack in 2019.
The news comes after Tesla announced a series of changes to its electric vehicle production.
The automaker recently announced plans to reduce production to around 10,000 vehicles per year, and is also planning to shift the bulk of its production to Mexico by 2021.
As of today, the automaker expects to produce around 5,400 electric vehicles per week by 2025.
The Silicon Valley-based company is also investing heavily in electric vehicles, as well as solar energy and energy storage.
Tesla’s announcement comes at a time when many automakers are exploring the use of renewable energy, including the use.
In November, the company said that it plans to move into battery manufacturing.
Earlier this month, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to repeal net neutrality, a policy which prohibits internet service providers from prioritizing or charging certain websites and apps over others.
It also allows internet service companies to charge internet users more for faster connections, a change that has many concerned about the impact on net neutrality.
The new announcement comes less than a week after Tesla revealed that it had begun installing a solar farm in the US, which will produce energy from the sun to power the electric cars.
