On Tesla `Battery Day` event, he said: "Probably good to combine them, since they are converging in time. I`m hopeful we can announce a date after the July 4th week".
The "Powertrain and Battery Investor Day was set to tell more about the automaker`s latest development in powertrain and battery technology.
Last month, Musk updated Tesla`s upcoming event to add that it will focus just on batteries and not powertrain, reports Electrek.

In a follow-up tweet, Musk clarified that this will "require the use of a paid-time-off day," like other holidays at the company.
