According to Tesla enthusiast @tesla_adri, the electric vehicle (EV) maker has set up a booth at the “IdeenExpo” in Hannover, Germany.
The trailer can charge up your EV using solar energy, and also has a Starlink dish attached to it. It looks to be more a demonstration of what’s possible than a product Tesla plans on launching. However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that it would be perfect for camping trips or make a cool companion for the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck.

They brought a solar range extender trailer with Starlink.
And a Model Y with the 4680 structural battery pack.

The Model Y frame being displayed at the booth appears similar to the ones Tesla showed off at the opening event for its new German Gigafactory near Berlin.

There’s a well-known friendly rivalry between the two automakers. The competition has only heated up further since Tesla’s Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg went online earlier this year. Giga Berlin began production with structural battery pack-equipped Model Y Performance units, and recently also started manufacturing the Model Y Long Range.
Earlier today, it was reported Giga Berlin is slated for a planned two-week shutdown to upgrade Model Y production lines for greater output.
