He answered the journalist’s question and did not forget to note that his question is currently useless. He should rather ask when the cars will be fully autonomous. Only then can the price of passenger cars be expected to fall four to five times, as many people start using, for example, driverless taxi services. From this reaction of Muska, it is clear what Tesla is focusing on now.
The carmaker previously planned to start serial production of the Cybertruck pick-up, the Semi tractor and the Roadster sports model. However, according to Musek, none of these cars will go into production until 2023, and an even later date can be expected. So autonomous management now seems to keep California engineers busy.
