Tesla confirmed the plans in a regulatory filing Monday , and noted that the new date will be finalized at a later date.
It's not clear what, exactly, the company plans to highlight or unveil at its forthcoming battery event, but Musk has touted it as one of the "most exciting" in Tesla's history.
"We want to leave the exciting news for that date," he told investors in April. "There will be a lot of exciting news to tell."
