So, the businessman said that in 2017 the market will have electric Tesla with batteries allowing travel up to 600 miles (966 km) between charges.

Today, those numbers look like science fiction, because now even the most advanced battery capacity of 90 kWh Tesla Model S can not cover more than 300 miles (480 km) in normal conditions.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk also promises that in October of this year, California motorists will be able to set its Model S partial autopilot system, which allows to keep the lane and a constant speed on the highway, as well as responding to unexpected interference and slow down before the obstacles. In addition, another important event in September will be scheduled for 29th of September – start selling crossover Tesla Model X.
