Tesla has revolutionised the business of building cars. The car company, owned by billionaire businessman Elon Musk, was the first to bring electric cars into the mainstream. And we can now expect some exciting news, after Elon Musk today teased a Tesla announcement on Twitter.
The Tesla head caused a stir yesterday when he posted a cryptic message about the impending news.
And Tesla’s stock immediately jumped by approximately 5 precent.
Tesla’s shares were relatively flat ahead of the planned announcement on Thursday.
It remains unclear whether Elon Musk will announce something newsworthy.
Musk made a couple of changes to his Twitter bio, which could be clues about the announcement.
For example, Musk changed his Twitter name to “Elon Tusk” and added an elephant emoji.
And the controversial SpaceX founder also changed his photo to a picture of Mars with the word “Revive” on it.
The widely-held assumption Elon Musk founded electric car manufacture Tesla is in fact wrong.
In fact, the company was founded by engineer Martin Eberhard and computer scientist Marc Tarpenning in July 2003
Mr Musk joined Tesla in 2004 after leading the company’s series A funding, and became CEO in 2008.
The announcement of the £26,000 ($35,000) Tesla Model 3, in April 2016, excited consumers to such an extent that purchasers were willing to put down $1,000 despite not receiving the keys to the car for two years.
