Tesla's Tiny House Is So Cool Even Elon Musk 'Wants One Too!'
The Tesla Tiny House is currently being towed on the back of a Model X around Australia to exhibit the company's products and to teach the public how to generate, store and use renewable energy for their own home, according to Electrek.
"We want to bring the Tesla Tiny House to you, so you can fully experience what it means to be self-powered," the company said.
Musk touted about the company's latest showcase on Twitter:
Tesla Powerwalls can support houses of any size, but the cool thing is we can tow this house around with a Model X! https://t.co/MmQl8BPetY— Elon Musk (@Elon Musk)1502751933.0
The Tesla boss then commented, "I want one too!" after a fan tweeted, "Sign me up for a tesla tiny house"
The 100 percent renewable energy-powered abode measures approximately 20 x 7 x 13 feet in size with an exterior clad in locally sourced, chemical-free sustainable wood.
The company provided some more details about the interior of the small space to Electrek:
"Powered by 100% renewable energy via a 2 kW solar system and Powerwall, Tiny House contains a mobile design studio and configurator which can calculate how your home can generate clean energy from the sun using solar panels, storing it in Powerwall to use throughout the day and night, which can all be monitored and controlled by the Tesla app."
Here are some other specifics of the Tesla Tiny House:
- Weight – 2 tonnes
- Dimensions – 6m x 2.2m x 4m
- Solar generation – 2kW PV system of 6 panels
- Solar storage – 1 x Tesla Powerwall
- Exterior – Clad in locally sourced, chemical-free, sustainable timber
Tesla collaborated with Australian sustainable architecture firm Archiblox on the rolling, prefabricated house. The firm posted an Instagram video of the display in Melbourne:
The Tesla Tiny House is currently touring around major Australian cities, but you can also request a tour for your own town via this link.
"Our next stop could be in your town, tell us where you'd like to see us," Tesla said.
