For musk, the proportion of new energy vehicles will be higher and higher in the future, which is a global trend.
If Tesla wants to get a higher share of electric vehicles, it is inevitable to continue to reduce prices, as Musk himself thinks (there will be no fuel vehicles in the long run) and has been doing so. Musk said all innovations would allow Tesla to produce electric vehicles at a cost of $25000, hoping to produce 20 million vehicles a year.
According to musk, to launch a lower price Tesla or lower the price of Tesla is to optimize the vehicle cost in many aspects. For example, there are plans to reduce the battery cost by half (maximize the use of nickel and reduce cobalt to zero).
As for the goal of producing $25000 cars, Musk said Tesla's current lowest-class Model 3 starts at $37990 in the United States, so it will fall 34 percent in a few years.
Musk also pointed out that the battery would be built directly into the car structure, an innovation inspired by the fuel tank on the wing of the aircraft. Structural batteries will reduce the overall weight of the vehicle. This will reduce the total number of parts required (by 370 parts) and speed up production. And most importantly, it will reduce the cost per kilowatt hour by 7%.
Besides trying to reduce the price of existing vehicles, Tesla CEO Elon
