Last year, Mr Musk suggested Tesla could develop a “kicka**” heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.
It followed a report from the European Commission which found heating and cooling for buildings and industry made up half of the European Union’s total energy consumption.
In a call with investors in April, the CEO said: “As I said on Twitter, I’m personally extremely excited to build a kicka** HVAC system that also has hospital-grade particle filtration.
“Basically have a filtration that filters out viruses, bacteria, pollen, funghi, but also neutralizes silicon alkaline gases, that is quiet and efficient. These are all things we’ve achieved in our cars.
“I don’t know if a lot of people realize but the Model S and X are the only cars in the world that have a hospital operating room-grade HEPA filter built in. They’re very big.“
