BULATS Writing on the topic of product development

BULATS Writing Part One on product development

You have received the following email from a business journalist:

I am writing to you because I am working on a story on the next generation of solar panels and I would like to ask your company about its future product plans. 

Could you please tell me something about what the efficiency of the new product will be like compared to your products now? I’d also be interested to find out about when you plan to launch the new panels, and what the cost will be.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
