Shares in Tesla Motors Inc. popped nearly 5 percent Thursday after CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the electric carmaker has a pair of mysterious announcements coming on Oct. 9. Investors are eagerly anticipating Tesla’s sport-utility Model X as well as the lower-priced, mass-market Model S, but his tweets were about a “different” product announcement.
"About time to unveil the D and something else," Musk tweeted on Wednesday night, along with a picture of a shadowy Tesla hiding in an industrial garage. Musk, the well-known entrepreneur, is known for making big announcements on Twitter as opposed to issuing press releases or leaking news to reporters.
The Wall Street Journal speculated that the letter “D” refers to the “dual motor” that will be found in the upcoming Tesla Model X, enabling an all-wheel-drive system useful for areas that get a lot of snow. The Journal noted that Musk’s tease comes during the biennial Paris Motor Show, when a number of Tesla’s competitors are promising to offer electric versions of popular models.
