Elon Musk and the early days of Tesla: interview part 1

Our friends from TOSV together with Ryan from The Kilowatts and Eli from My Tesla Adventure had the amazing opportunity of sitting down with Elon for four hours and set the record straight in the early days of Tesla. This is part 1 of the interview.

Tesla AI Day pushed to September 30

According to Elon, this opens the door to a possible working prototype of Optimus (Tesla’s Robot).

A prototype of the Cybertruck made an appearance at the Moss Landing Megapack in California. Luckily for us, someone was able to snatch pictures of the interior, we can see clear changes in the dash and an instrument cluster that is closer to the one in the new Model S and Model X.

Last Saturday, Elon seemed to be working on improving the service experience in North America. His goal is that 2/3s of the cars can get service the same day, no wait. As someone who has had to wait for weeks for service appointments (luckily nothing critical), this is great news!

  • AP - Autopilot
  • EV - Electric Vehicle
  • PPF - Paint Protection Film
  • TOSV - Tesla Owners Silicon Valley
