【全自动化:特斯拉正研发智能充电技术】以后,你的汽车将不再需要你劳心了。它能够在接送你上下班之后,自己在家充电!特斯拉老板近日在推特上证实,公司计划研发自主充电技术,并应用于未来的汽车产品中,将替代充电站的人工服务。一旦这项技术研发成功,自主驾驶也将提上日程。

Is this what Tesla's charger might look like? A video posted to YouTube by OC Robotics showed off the Series II X125 system, which is a 'snake' that can move and support itself in mid-air autonomously, perhaps showing how Tesla's charger will move from the wall to a car

In the future, your electric car will drop you off at work, drive home and charge itself using an automated charger, before coming to pick you up later in the day.

That’s the vision of Tesla boss Elon Musk, who tweeted his firm is working on a ‘solid metal snake’ charger that automatically moves out from the wall.

The short reveal on Twitter is just one of several new features Tesla is planning to roll out for its electric cars in the next few years.

But, the latest technology would eliminate the need for people to manually connect their car to a charger.

And, as cars become more automated, this could open up new possibilities for self-driving vehicles.

In his tweet Musk wrote: ‘Btw, we are actually working on a charger that moves out from the wall and connects like a solid metal snake. For realz.’

He previously alluded to the technology at the reveal of the Dual Motor version of the Model S back in October.

‘Something I’d like to do...is to have the charge connector plug itself in,’ he said at the time. 

‘Like an articulating sort of snake, or something. Just plug itself in.

‘I think we’ll probably do something like that. So then you can just get out of your car and it’ll go park itself in your garage.’

His latest tweet confirms the company's plans to develop the technology.

It’s not clear when it will be rolled out, but in another tweet that has since been deleted, Mr Musk said the technology would be used on current and future versions of the Model S.

In other Tesla news, last week the firm updated its electric Roadster sports car with a huge boost to its battery, enabling it to drive 400 miles (645km) on a single charge.

The upgraded battery pack along with tweaks to its aerodynamics means it will effectively double its range.

To prove the capabilities, Mr Musk revealed the firm plans to drive the car from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a single trip.

The firm has also made a new aero kit for the car to reduce drag by 15 per cent, and revealed tyres with 20 per cent less drag.

'We have identified a new cell that has 31 per cent more energy than the original Roadster cell,' the company said.

'Using this new cell we have created a battery pack that delivers roughly 70kWh in the same package as the original battery.

'Combining all of these improvements we can achieve a predicted 40 to 50 per cent improvement on range between the original Roadster and Roadster 3.0.'
