Tesla is about to launch a new “treadmill” in China that can be used for running or even for cycling.
The new Tesla Xpulse, which is a step up from the existing T101, is designed to run on solar panels and can take up to 8 hours to complete a 10-mile course, according to a new blog post on the company’s website.
The company says it will begin shipping the Xpulsive in November.
Tesla has previously touted the new treadmill as a way to keep the company on the cutting edge of fitness technology.
The new Tesla treadmill, for example, uses a battery that can recharge in just 30 minutes.
The Xpression is a significant step in the company, as it comes in three versions: the “Xpulse X” is the most powerful version of the machine; the “T-Series” is an upgrade to the “CX” version, which has been out for about three years; and the “P Series” is a slightly smaller model.
The company claims the Xpulets can run up to 12 hours without stopping.
Tesla is currently targeting an October launch in China, and the company is also hoping to sell its machines in other markets.
The “T101” treadmill was originally designed as a prototype for the company to evaluate and test its fitness-tracking technologies, including the treadmill’s built-in heart rate monitor and its “Power Meter,” a battery-powered device that monitors a user’s activity level.
The treadmill was designed to take up a small space in the gym, but the company has said that in the future it could potentially be used in other fitness-based spaces, including on a plane.
