New Tesla Solar Roof tiles spotted at test facility – Electrek

New Tesla Solar Roof tiles in a different color have been spotted at the automaker’s test facility near Fremont factory in California.

When Tesla first unveiled its Solar Roof tiles in 2016, the product wasn’t fully formed yet, but the company had several different designs.

Tesla has had issues bringing the product to volume production and deployment as it tried to test the longevity and make the installation quicker.

It’s only over the last year that we have seen Tesla accelerate deployment, but we have only seen a single version of the tiles being installed on customer roofs.

The product was originally offered in four different styles: Textured Glass Tile, Slate Glass Tile, Tuscan Glass Tile, and Smooth Glass Tile.
