Forward-thinkers like Elon Musk know that CeBIT is the only event in the world that covers every aspect of the digital revolution. Musk's company Tesla is in Hannover this year to showcase the new Model X and the Powerwall energy storage solution.
It's easy to see why Tesla electric vehicles are so popular in car-crazy Germany. After all, quality speaks for itself - you don't have to rely on tradition. This certainly holds true at CeBIT, where the disruptive technologies on show are way ahead of the game. No wonder Elon Musk has chosen CeBIT 2017 to present the latest highlights of the extensive Tesla portfolio. Visitors can head along to Hall 12 to see how the Powerwall energy storage solution can be used in resource-efficient homes to power up the Tesla Model X.
Tesla takes pride in presenting the Model X as the safest, fastest and most versatile sport utility vehicle (SUV) in history. With standard all-wheel drive and an astounding range of 565 km on a single charge, the Model X has ample space for seven adults and all of their gear. Capable of accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds, Tesla is truly redefining the limits of electric-drive vehicles. Compromises no longer have to be tolerated in terms of the associated infrastructure, either. The Powerwall 2, also on show in action at CeBIT, can be installed as part of a solar power system. As it stores double the energy of first-generation Tesla batteries, the Powerwall 2 can power an average two-bedroom home for a full day - or indeed charge up a Model X for its next long-distance run.
