A few days ago, Walter Isaacson, the author of "Musk Biography," mentioned new details about the next generation of electric vehicle platforms in his book about Musk.
Musk doesn't seem excited about the low price of a $25,000 entry-level car, but his dreams and goals are more ambitious, and he cares more about transforming current urban transportation through robotaxis.
At a review meeting earlier this year,The Robotaxi was juxtaposed with the $25,000 car model, but Musk was unimpressed with the $25,000 car, saying "it's really not an exciting product."
As for the Robotaxi, Musk said it will be a very futuristic self-driving car, it may not have a steering wheel, and the design is as sci-fi as Cybertruck.
Initially, Musk decided to build a new factory in northern Mexico to begin designing the next generation of electric vehicles and would use highly automated production methods, but Musk soon realized he was having a hard time getting senior engineers to travel to Mexico.
So in May, Musk decided that the next generation of electric cars and robotaxis would be built at the Austin Gigafactory, where he would personally lead the team, top engineers and a highly automated assembly line.
Musk said,The Robotaxi will be a revolutionary product of historical significance, it will change everything, 100 years from now, people will remember this moment, and Tesla will be a great wealth.
