Tesla air conditioning installation to be finished by summer 2019
Tesla will finish installing air conditioning units in the new air conditioning system that will be used in the Tesla Model S sedan, which will be unveiled later this month, according to a report from Bloomberg.
The report cited an unnamed Tesla executive.
Tesla said the air conditioning systems will be installed at Tesla’s Fremont, California, headquarters by summer of 2019.
The company has not yet confirmed the date.
Tesla began rolling out its new air conditioners in September.
The system uses a heat exchanger, which is a heat-producing device.
The heat exchangers are installed in front of the cabin, which generates a steam, which drives a fan to move air.
The new air conditions are expected to be installed in the 2018 Model X SUV and 2018 Model 3 sedan.
Tesla’s air conditioner will be similar to the one it already has in the Model S. The air conditioning unit will be powered by an electric motor.
The first units will be delivered in early 2020, according the report.
Tesla is working on the air condition system to be used by its future electric vehicles.
Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, said the company plans to make more than 300 of the new units.
The automaker will also be using the airconditioner in its next electric vehicle, the Model X, which has a more aggressive price tag of $37,000.
Tesla has been in discussions with automakers to use air conditioning in future vehicles.
The technology is not only safer than conventional air conditioning systems, but it also makes for better interior and exterior looks.
Tesla recently completed a $7.4 million renovation of the Fremont plant that manufactures its air condition systems.
Tesla will now have a larger and more capable facility in Fremont to build more air condition and cooling systems.
