Working with his two companies, Tesla and The Boring Company, Elon Musk is planning to premiere the electric bus somehow. This has to do with an expansion of the Loop project, supposedly set to be guineaed at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Apparently, the Boring Company, which probably is already in cahoots with the Hyperloop project, is making tunnels that will allow Tesla brand vehicles to transport the public underground, using Electric Vehicle technology. At a certain point, they plan to have higher passenger density vehicles. To which Musk responded with the following.
“We will make a dense Tesla if it matters. Maybe just better to have more tunnels though. There is no practical limit to tunnel count. Increased traffic due to “induced demand” is the second dumbest theory I’ve ever heard after homeopathy!” – @elonmusk
Elon Musk Likes To Tease.
The dude has been known to tease as well as mislead the public into thinking that he’ll actually make the deadline. But who knows? This might just be crazy enough to work, given that he already has the resources – and funding – at his disposal. This should turn out to be interesting as he’s mentioned in the past, as part of his “Tesla Master Plan Part 2.” In it, Musk details the likelihood to bring in heavy-duty trucks as well as high passenger-density urban transport. They’re each in early beta development over at the automaker. He’s almost confident about the potential of the Tesla Semi, anyway. It’s supposedly to deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport, while also increasing safety and making it fun to operate.
It turns out to be the only vehicle that the company has not quite yet shown at all.
My opinion on this? Let Tesla do what Tesla wants. It’s Tesla! Oh forget about it. Long live the future.
