The call heavily focused on the Tesla Model 3. However, Musk also briefly and indistinctly talked about the Tesla Model X transition to the 2170 battery cells battery packs "by the end of the year."

The Tesla Model X will not be the only vehicle from the company to make this transition. According to reports, the Model S will be making changes as well.
