Tesla Model 3 To Benefit From Musk's New Glass Technology Group

Elon Musk has revealed that #Tesla has created its own glass technology group in a move which will benefit the entry-level Model 3.

The company’s chief executive revealed the news during a conference call with analysts after Tesla unveiled its advanced solar roof a few days ago. The technology used in creating the company's strong glass solar panels will trickle down to the Model 3, he said.

“It is using a lot of techniques used in automotive glass business. In case it wasn’t obvious with the announcement, Tesla has created a glass technology group – with some really phenomenal people,” Musk confirmed.

Electrek reports the group's director is Mike Pilliod, a former material engineer from Apple.

Although Musk failed to confirmed just how much of the glass from the Model 3 will be built in-house, he did say that glass can be produced in volume at a fairly low cost, suggesting that it could be used extensively.
