We learnt last week from Tesla CEO Elon Musk that the company’s Annual Shareholder Meeting scheduled for July 7, 2020, was going to be delayed due to ongoing coronavirus concerns.

Musk also revealed that the highly-anticipated (and much-delayedBattery Day event was likely going to coincide with the shareholder meeting.

We now have a new tentative date for both events, and it’s also going to include a tour of the battery cell production system at Fremont.

The new date is nearly 3 months away, September 15 2020. With the announcement of the new tentative date, the event is confirmed to be taking place at Tesla’s Fremont factory.

Battery Day has had many potential locations, from Giga New York, to California, and even Texas, with some thinking that location might also lead to announcement of the location of the next Gigafactory.

With recent announcements of new deals with Panasonic around battery supplyGlencore for cobalt supply, and the recent approval to sell LFP batteries in China which could extend range and lower cost to a point where EVs would gain price parity (or better) with the gas vehicle counterparts, Battery Day could be a groundbreaking event for the automaker.
