Tesla first showed a prototype of an automated charging system called Solid Metal Snake back in 2015, publishing a short video demonstrating how the system works using the Model S as an example. However, there have been no updates on the status of development since then. And now Elon Musk broke a five-year silence and announced in several tweets that Tesla is still planning to implement this concept of charging in the form of a snake in a serial product.

Also Musk jokingly notedthat the installation will definitely play “snake jazz”.

Alas, the head of Tesla did not specify the release date of this system.

As you know, the release of the next major update of the Tesla autopilot is scheduled for mid-December, within which the software component of the system has been completely redone. Closed beta test of the updated FSD, which will grow the proprietary Autopilot system to the highest level 5, will begin in the USA already October 20…

The launch of the promised Tesla Network robotic taxi service with 1 million self-driving cars, which the company originally planned to launch in 2020, will depend on the implementation of full Full Self-Driving. The Solid Metal Snake automated charging system is likely part of Tesla Network’s plans.
