The billionaire also made an announcement regarding the new Model S, confirming a rumor that had been circulating for a few weeks.

Elon Musk talks about the new Model S
This time around, Elon Musk says a third row will be added to the Model S and will be able to accommodate not only children, but adults as well. To date, this option is not yet offered on the Tesla site. It’s important to remember that the company has yet to start delivering these new vehicles, but it shouldn’t be long.

For its part, the American media Electrek had been able to analyze an aerial shot thanks to a drone of a new Model S, and would indeed have seen a third row of seats. Although it is difficult to say it from a distance.
Getting back to the fact that Tesla now allows Bitcoin transactions, the company mentioned this possibility in February when it announced that it had invested $ 1.5 billion in this cryptocurrency. Today, it’s done, Elon Musk confirmed on Twitter that this payment method was now available. Musk also clarifies that Bitcoins cashed will not be converted into dollars, but will be kept as such.
