To see what Tesla Daily followers expect from the event, check out the series of Twitter polls below, and feel free to vote if the polls are still open:
Historically, Tesla's Model S and Model X vehicles have utilized an 18650 battery form factor, but some expect that to change alongside this refresh. Tesla utilizes a 2170 battery in the Model 3 and Model Y, and unveiled their internally-designed 4680 battery at "Battery Day" last year.
On the heels of Elon Musk's cancellation of the even higher-performance "Plaid +" Model S, many expect Tesla to announce more range on the still-existing variants. Tesla currently lists the Long Range Model S estimated range at 412 miles, and 390 miles for the Plaid.
Ever since Elon Musk surprisingly rolled out the Tesla Roadster at the Tesla Semi unveiling event, Tesla events have been awash in rumors and speculation of similar unknown extras. Hope springs eternal. Do you expect any surprises?
Investors will be watching closely for any insights from Tesla's event. How will the markets react when trading opens on Friday after the event?
