- This past week Tesla featured featured a solar-powered range extender trailer as part of its exhibit at the 2022 IdeenExpo in Hanover, Germany.
- The prototype also features Tesla’s SpaceX Starlink.
The trailer features a fold-out array of nine solar panels and the SpaceX Starlink satellite internet system. The trailer reportedly can add about 40 miles of additional electric vehicle range, depending on the model.
The trailer also features SpaceX’s Starlink, a satellite-based internet hub that offers high-speed, low-latency broadband internet in remote and rural locations by connecting to a SpaceX Starlink satellite in orbit.
Tesla has yet to say whether the prototype will go into mass production.
