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.
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.
Tentative date for Tesla Shareholder Meeting & Battery Day is Sept 15. Will include tour of cell production system.

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 supply, Glencore 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.
