With biological weapon defense mode and Cybertruck function
Tesla's next product is not an electric car, but a household air conditioner with a powerful anti-virus filter. Elon Musk is very keen on this, he said: "It's crazy, but I'm going to do it now." Network trucks should also benefit.
Tesla Model X and Model S provide a special air- conditioning mode, the so-called biological weapon defense mode. If this feature is enabled, Tesla promises to filter out pollutants in the air, its efficiency is 100 times higher than the traditional air conditioning system installed on the car. According to the company, 99.97% of the fine particles should be captured by the HEPA filter. It is said that the biological weapon defense mode is effective even against the corona virus. Most viruses, spores, and pollen have no chance. Anything in the car can work at home, right?
The conclusion is actually close. Companies such as Dyson have successfully sold equipment for cooling, heating, filtering air, and adding moisture as needed. Tesla can now also plan such HVAC products [heating, ventilation and air conditioning].
Job posting and other information
In a podcast with Joe Rogan, Musk first discussed the idea publicly in 2018-at the time, it was still very closed. Musk cannot yet talk about unfinished products. However, the idea of a filtered air conditioning system is "very interesting." Now, two years later, the project seems to be accelerating.

At the end of March, Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted a tweet again, expressing his interest in building a "quiet, efficient, air humidification equipment equipped with HEPA filters." He added: "This is much larger than you think." Musk said the device can even produce drinking water from the surrounding air. Further explanation: This California automaker is actively looking for suitable qualified professionals on the company ’s own job portal.
"It's crazy, but I am going to do it now"-Cybertruck should also benefit
At the end of April, the next sign showed that Musk did not forget his air conditioning plan. Open Twitter The CEO wrote: "I really like the idea of using HEPA filters and water treatment units to build an efficient and quiet indoor air conditioner. This is crazy, but I am going to do it now."
Then, a Twitter user asked: Do you need an air-conditioning system more than an air-conditioned truck? "Musk's answer to this is also very interesting because he wrote:" Maybe electric trucks have it … ". E-pick-up? How does it work together? It is not clear yet. However, you can imagine HVAC and Cyber Trucks are connected to each other, and it is also possible to use some technologies in the air conditioning of Cybertruck. Yes, passengers not only always have clean air, but also a glass of water?
If you consider this idea further, other Tesla products will also play a role. In addition to electric vehicles, the company also provides power storage solutions and solar roofs in the United States [sometimes in Europe]. All these departments can be integrated into a smart home application and intelligently networked with each other. Let us summarize what Tesla's home air conditioner can do:
- Indoor clean air, free of viruses, fungal spores, pollen
- Cooling air
- Warm air
- Convert indoor humidity to drinking water
- Connect with Tesla vehicles
- Automatic heating / cooling / cleaning when the vehicle drives home
- Special biological weapon defense mode / high performance mode
In addition to the information given, Tesla has no specific statement on when to start such devices. But what is certain is that during and after the corona crisis, the market will definitely be prepared for this.
