Elon Musk Announces Tesla Robotaxi To Be Unveiled On August 8

In a surprising turn of events, Elon Musk announced that Tesla will introduce its much-awaited Robotaxi on August 8, 2024. Interestingly, Musk has a never-ending desire to introduce more self-driving vehicles; however, his dream has not been fulfilled.

Now, the billionaire has announced his plans for Robotaxi on his self-owned platform. He simply wrote on X, “Tesla Robotaxi unveil on 8/8,” and did not give further details about the product.

Moreover, Musk has always been quite vocal about his plan for a car that requires no human control. Not long ago, he shared a tweet about cars with full self-driving features.

He wrote,

In April 2019, Musk first discussed his vision for Robotaxis and revealed that Tesla expects to start its operation in 2020. Clearly, it did not happen.

However, Musk had also shared his unpredictable timetable. He said,

Only criticism, and it’s a fair one, [is that] sometimes I’m not on time.

But I get it done, and the Tesla team gets it done,

Several reports suggest that the Robotaxi news was shared with the employees in February of this year, and they were ordered to shift their entire focus to Robotaxis. This also led to a decrease in the production volume of entry-level vehicles. 

After Elon Musk’s tweet on April 6, 2024, his company’s shares increased by more than 3%. Notably, Tesla’s shares dropped significantly in the last quarter because of the constantly increasing competition.
