In a Monday tweet, Tesla CEO Elon Musk teased an upcoming announcement of a new product that he said will not be a car.

What could the product be? A Tesla executive said last month said the electric car company is working on battery technology that could power a home or office, potentially taking lessons it has learned in battery design and using them to open up new revenue streams.

But it’s also worth noting that “not a car” isn’t the same thing as “not a vehicle.” There have been rumors for years that Tesla could make an electric motorcycle, truck or van, though the company has yet to release the electric SUV or cheaper sedan models it has already announced.

Twitter users, of course, have had their fun guessing what it could be with the #TeslaNewProductGuesses hashtag:

And Musk himself has been known to tease Tesla news on Twitter:

Tesla reported disappointing earnings last quarter, losing 13 cents per share on adjusted revenue of $1.1 billion.
