    Interesting talk and you have got to hand respect to Tesla for pushing the car industry forward, it’s hard to see the old school moving in the EV direction with any speed without Tesla’s influence. Self drive definitely needs the kinks ironing out before it is safe though, using my model 3 on a beta of only partial self drive on the motorway/uk(freeway) was not reassuring and much more stressful than plain driving with the phantom breaking and hesitancy on lane changing. However when self drive is mastered I have no doubt that it will be generally make safer roads, ease congestion and improve efficiency.

    Great interview. There are a few engineering questions I wish were asked: 1. Is the front/rear casting machine the final phase or will we see full car casting 2. Elon said he wanted to make a wiring harness which was only 100m long and could be install with robots - what progress has been made on this

      Thanks for checking out our channel!


    It would be really cool to be part of the network of Tesla's that replace Uber and Lyft! We could have a little reality show which would be a type of advertising through our channels that could inevitably lead to more people buying Tesla's! I have a background in Automotive Marketing Business Administration and Commercial Energy. Also I'm starting a channel called PROTESLA POWER. Of course this channel will talk about Nikola Tesla, Energy generation, Health and well-being, Tesla motors, Elon Musk, SpaceX, etc. I live just outside of Toronto Canada and could really use some advice on how to get my channel off the ground. I've sent several messages to Elon Musk on Twitter but he gets so many messages in a day or mine probably get overlooked. I think I could be doing a lot more to help people get a Tesla in their driveways faster. I also believe that if you're going to have an EV you might want to have solar generation and battery storage which I also have a business plan to implement. If you like these ideas or have some of your own to offer, I would really like to know. I do appreciate all of you and your comments. This is the time and we are the people that will change the world! propower101@hotmail.com

    No to single cast for front, mid, rear. Based on my engineering experience, we look at repairs in an event of an accident repair. Single cast means a disposable vehicle cause repair becomes too expensive. I understand that removing all the cast and replace in an event of structural damage however you too are into simplicity and it is so easy to get caught with over excited and neglecting the rest of economic repairs rendered the product disposable.

  • epincion

    Love Elon's comment that an MBA makes you good at PowerPoint presentations! He is so right about the harm (yes harm) that what I will call 'management studies' has done. I'm from a healthcare backround and of an age when I remember when trained healthcare professionals actually ran the sector (eg a hospital) but now probably 40% of staff are management with no healthcare training.

    The more self driving cars are on the road, the safer they will be too. Connecting them on a network where their movement is connected and coordinated, everyone can just go 130mph all the time once there’s no human drivers left.

  • J.G. McBell
    J.G. McBell

    I feel like Musk also has a different perspective, and expectation of his managers. Because he totally understands everything they’re doing, it’s hard for him to see a perspective where you could lead without understanding it all. I don’t think that having an MBA should be a disqualifying factor from jumping into management. It’s about the person behind the MBA. And knowing every specific detail isn’t necessary to lead a team of competent people in the right direction. As long as that person UNDERSTANDS that they don’t have the answers and their focus is on helping the people who do have the answers work together.

  • Proteslapower

    For those of you who love the idea of the Cybertruck being able to pull a tank turn to get you out of tight spots, maybe it's possible! With a triple motor or dual motor it would be difficult for the tank turn to be accomplished in the same way. The reason is because you don't have a motor on each wheel you cannot get the right wheels to move forward and the left wheels to move backwards. On the other hand I do believe with the torque and power of the Cybertrucks motors that you could have the front right wheel going forward and the rear left wheel going backwards to accomplish pretty much the same action. With just one wheel moving forward and one wheel moving backwards theoretically the dual motor or the triple motor could do a tank turn. You would have to slightly turn your front wheel towards your reversing back wheel or vice versa. These actions I believe could give you a similar forward tank turn or a reversing tank turn. Of course this would be easier with swiveling rear steering as well. Four wheel independent steering and only for tank turn with the vehicle having to be fully stopped and wheels turned all the way to configure wheel following wheel action. A tank turn sounds too clumsy anyway gyro action would be preferred terminology! For those that like these ideas or have some of your own to add please let me know. I appreciate all of you and your ideas. Now is the time to change our future! propower101@hotmail.com

  • Proteslapower

    Elon Musk already stated that they will be able to build the Cybertruck faster than any other production vehicle ever made. Think about it there is no body molding presses no paint shops. If Giga Texas starts ramping up production in the next month or two they will have 100,000 built by this year! Once they have perfected Giga Texas there will be more Cybertruck factories being built across North America. The demand is also going to be high for lite duty and heavy duty Cybertrucks as well so you will see more factories being built all over the world. I have suggested outside of Toronto be the next spot for a Tara factory and Cybertruck line. Tell me where you think their next Tesla factories be built? I appreciate all of you and your comments. This is the time and we are the people that will change the world! propower101@hotmail.com

    Always to be thankful when a car developer and builder sits face to face with someone that is going to ask for all the wrong things they are doing. Good marketing? Bad Marketing? who cares, it is just the right and honest thing to do. I just cannot think of another brand/ car company CEO that has given such an interview (but it might have happened, I just have not wacthed it).Great job Sandy Munro.

  • Erikootje

    From time to time people ask that question: who's your hero? And until now I wasn't the kind of person who could give one straight answer. I always was the kind of guy that thought something like, well, through time you have different people who are great in various disciplines, there is no such thing as 'a hero' , maybe Batman lol, somebody fictional who you can look up too that no real life persion could ever live up to but would be cool if that would be possible. But for the first time, I can honestly say that if somebody come ask me that question, I could finaly answer without hesitation: Elon Musk. I have so much respect for who he is, what he does, what he wants to do, to humanity and what he has accomplished already, that I only have admiration for him. He is the true Galileo, Da Vinci of our times...

    I had to stop watching at isnets.info/main/jHLYsISCzaGwrs0/v-deo.html Elon was completely right, and Munro's bleating on regulated road markings was so off the mark. If autonomous driving systems can't handle inconsistent road lines, then it's just not ready for prime time. Munro thought he was handing Elon an olive branch and an opportunity to blame external factors and Elon refused to take it. I want a car that can drive on a dirt track or a beach. Munro got shown up here. I hope he realised it.

      @Whack-a-mole It kinda sounds like you're agreeing with me, but you prefaced it with 'No, not at all'. What's with that?

    • Whack-a-mole

      No, not at all. Elon was just voicing the company’s position on how FSD must operate because he knows the reality is that such legislation will never happen.

  • Harrybob

    Short selling a stock doesn't affect the underlying company at all, the only reason elon dislikes it is because it shines a light on the fact that tlsa is insanely overvalued. A overvalued stock means a company can issue new shares to raise capital at inflated prices, effectively taking share holders money and this is what they have done, also it is this reason that through stock comp elon became the worlds wealthiest person for awhile. Completely self serving. He's a crook, didn't even start tesla, look it up.
