Tesla needs to point out off a prototype of an electrical pickup this 12 months and it’s engaged on bringing the Mannequin Y and Class eight semi truck into manufacturing.
However actually, who cares about any of that as a result of Tesla apparently has a design for a submarine automobile simply sitting round accumulating mud.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about the electrical submarine automobile in response to a query through the firm’s annual shareholder’s assembly Tuesday in Mountain View, Calif. The shareholder requested whether or not Tesla had thought-about constructing an aquatic automobile, that means a automobile that might journey on roads, after which transition into or underneath water.
It seems a design exists for a submarine automobile impressed by the Lotus Esprit featured within the James Bond movie, the Spy Who Cherished Me.
“I thought that was like the coolest thing,” Musk stated, including that he owns the automobile from the film.
Musk stated it’s technically potential to make a functioning model, however added “I think the market for this would be small — small, but enthusiastic.”
Constructing such a a automobile could be a distraction, Musk stated. Nevertheless, he left the chance open that perhaps sometime Tesla would make it a present automobile.
