Tesla has delayed the roll-out of its solar roof.
The company originally said it will begin selling its solar roof in April, but CEO Elon Musk said that two of the four shingle options won’t be made available until early 2018. A Tesla spokesperson declined to comment further on why the timeline had changed.
Tesla unveiled its solar roof product in late October, about a month before the company acquired SolarCity in a deal worth $2.1 billion. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said the solar roof will be cheaper than a normal proof even before factoring in the price of electricity.
Here’s everything we know about the new solar roof product:
Tesla will offer four types of shingles to match different housing aesthetics in an effort to get homeowners to ditch clunky solar panel add-ons in favor of a beautiful roof.
