Elon Musk teased Tesla's next possible car

The big question is whether he was serious or just trolling in his characteristic way.

Elon Musk regularly says or writes something that upsets people’s moods, and can even influence the prices of various companies, which is understandable when one of the richest people in the world has more than reach one hundred million users via Twitter page. A similar thing happened just now, as it was spotted by ScreenRant, which mainly deals with films, series or video games. Indeed, Musk asked a kind of poetic question on Twitter, which, of course, immediately sent electric cars into a frenzy, including Tesla fans.

Maybe Tesla should produce a well-configurable Robovan van for passenger and goods transport? – asked Musk to his followers.

Maybe Tesla should make a highly configurable Robovan for people & cargo?— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 7, 2022 Of course, this sounds good, but it doesn’t hurt to think that in addition to today’s faltering supply chains, car factories are facing enormous difficulties, and this is also reflected in their performance. People who want to buy a new car have to face waiting lists of several months or even years at car dealerships, and there are more and more reports that individual brands are postponing the presentation of certain models or handing over models with poorer equipment to customers, as they are not yet can meet the demand.Tesla is no exception to this, which in addition to its four passenger car models (Model S, Model 3, Model X and Model Y) is already on the finish line with the development of its electric truck, the Tesla Semi, with its astonishing appearance Cybertruck, however, had to postpone the market launch of the pickup several times due to various problems. The style of the current models is echoed on the possible visual design of the Tesla Robovan (Photo: Tesla) Based on the name, in addition, Musk wants a self-driving van: Tesla is also developing its own self-driving taxi service, which is referred to as Robotaxi, and which, according to the company founder, could start working as early as 2024 – it is true that already operating in the USA Due to the recent accident of robot taxi service provider Cruise, it is possible that the rules for self-driving taxis will change by then. Regardless, it sounds like a good idea for Tesla’s robot taxi fleet to be made up of cars that can be easily converted depending on whether it’s carrying passengers or goods. So far, Elon Musk has not revealed more details about Robovan. Only one concept drawing of the planned self-driving van can be seen, but it is probably more the work of an enthusiastic fan than Tesla’s official plan. The graphic shows the nose part of current Teslas, all hidden in the body of a van or, rather, a modern MPV. It is interesting that you can discover some similarities with Ford’s recently presented electric supervan, this however, it is probably only due to the streamlined design.In response to the comments on Twitter, Elon Musk even suggested that the Robovan would benefit from a solar tarpaulin that extends beyond the van’s floor area and triples the roof’s floor area, helping the electric vehicle to be charged anywhere.

Maybe with an optional solar power canopy that extends both sides of the van, tripling roof area— Elon Musk (@elonmusk ) July 7, 2022 By the way, this idea is not new, an Australian engineer used a similar solution to cover 15,000 kilometers with his Tesla , without visiting a charging station. Musk’s company recently flashed a special Tesla trailer equipped with retractable solar panels. There are no plans to produce a motorcycle yet, but a fan has dreamed up what the Tesla engine.
