Tesla shares finished Tuesday down 2.6 percent at $283.36 on the Nasdaq. Musk and Tesla have announced (or alluded to) various other body styles, including pickup trucks and lorries, but this kind of SUV is a popular format in numerous company's key markets. According to Musk, the price of Autopilot will also "revert to normal" on Monday.
