Elon Musk Says Go Ahead and Copy Us
At times, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says some of the wildest things ever imagined:
"We hope the big car companies do copy Tesla."
Musk then added:
"When you consider what is the fundamental good Tesla will achieve, it’s getting the rest of the car industry to move toward sustainable transport faster. I don’t know why they’re taking so long.”
Which makes his initial "copy Tesla" statement seem more reasonable.
Musk seems to what a bunch of Tesla copycats in the automotive industry, but while that would certainly be beneficial for the EV movement, we're not so sure Tesla would benefit from having "big car companies" copying the electric automaker.
