Elon Musk: Tesla for $ 35 000, Hyperloop and Mars for 3 months

Элон Маск

Yesterday morning, the famous entrepreneur Elon Musk (PayPal, Tesla , SpaceX) appeared on the scene D11 with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher to tell people about the prospects of their work and answer any questions. In a few words: fly to Mars in three months, reduce the price of electric Model S to 35 000 dollars and build a system of high-speed transport Hyperloop. All this – in the future mask .



One of the first questions asked Mossberg mask is will we ever Tesla cars for 35,000 dollars (70,000 now). In response, Musk limited mysterious “somewhere in three years.”

One can not but agree that the Tesla Model S is a great achievement in the industry of electric vehicles, and this machine looks great, but many people still become flustered when they see the price tag of 70,000 dollars. CEO, of course, aware of this concern and notified to the D11, that within three years, the price may fall, and significantly. In an interview with Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg Elon Musk mentioned that started the company with a three-step strategy of entering the mass market. Roadster and Model S were the first two. The third step should be to provide broad market coverage. “I think any large product needs at least three iterations to enter the mass market – the phone was even more than that.”

Well, it is worth considering, you can begin to collect money to 2016-2017 year.

As for the market development of electric vehicles in the performance of Tesla, the head of the company has promised to increase the density and triple the number of charging stations in the U.S. by the end of June. For the first time drivers can drive from Los Angeles to New York City at a time, without the need to carry jerry cans full of electricity. Supercharger network will work in most major areas of the U.S. and Canada by the end of the year. Short travel distances and the lack of charging stations – the main problem of electric vehicles, and as we can see, the head of Tesla perfectly aware of this.

According to the words of the mask is much more profitable to buy a Tesla electric car instead of a conventional gasoline cars. You may ask: what if it costs 70 thousand dollars? For 7 years, as the Elon, you will save 10-15 thousand dollars on gasoline.

All it takes scale, pleasant, and other automakers. Earlier this month, Tesla wrapped up its first profit and repaid the loan to the government of 465 million dollars.

Футуристический транспорт

As suggested by the “Wikipedia», Hyperloop – this is a hypothetical model of a high-speed movement, proposed by Elon Musk. This system should be a “fifth appearance” of transport – an alternative to the ships, planes, cars and trains. In theory, it would reach from Los Angeles to San Francisco for half an hour. In response to a question about the “coil” (let’s call it so) Elon Musk said the following:

“I wish I could answer that question, but it’s news tomorrow. However, tomorrow I have news about Tesla. I’ll let you know about the idea of ​​Hyperloop very soon. June 20, we need to make an announcement on Tesla, and shortly after that we can talk about the “coil”. The basic idea is this: is there a more convenient way to quickly travel from, say, Los Angeles to San Francisco than the fastest train? In fact, this train is the slowest of the fastest in the world and the most expensive per mile in the world. It’s a bit depressing – when California’s slowest express train in the world, and incredibly expensive. ”

Hyperloop rapid transit system will initially be carried out on the way from Los Angeles to San Francisco. More information will become available after June 20.

Hyperloop will be somewhere between “reylganom” and air hockey. Musk said that even if he was wrong in economic terms, to go so it will be a lot of fun.

“Coil” will be able to take you at a speed of more than a thousand miles an hour, which is 3-4 times faster than a high-speed train and twice the speed of the aircraft. It is possible that Hyperloop will run on solar-powered and produce more energy than it consumes. Elon Musk to be believed, he’s extremely concerned about the development of batteries in the Tesla.

“The project has a plan of conservation of energy, so it will work around the clock without the intervention of batteries.”



During the conference, the mask also asked questions about SpaceX and plans for the future. Musk said that at the moment is developing (and again it can be believed) the possible escape route to Mars. He believes that one day mankind will come kaput and it would be nice to have a colony on Mars. Also, quote: “Maybe someone wants to die there.”

These strange greats.

To provide the necessary heat to the surface of Mars colony will support the greenhouse effect – the kind that is now destroying the Earth. Strange, is not it? Ennoble Mars Elon Musk is going to means, directly opposite to those which are struggling against the world, building electric Tesla.

You ask, what money is living SpaceX?

“Well, we pay the bills” – responds Musk. – “We are launching satellites …”.

During the conference, Musk also mentioned the warp engines. Mossberg and Swisher stood in disbelief. Do not want to see, which is engaged in NASA ?
