Elon Musk: 500-Mile EV Achievable “Soon”

Elon Musk: 500-Mile EV Achievable “Soon”

Don’t expect Tesla to go hybrid to achieve that kind of driving range either, though a hybrid battery pack might be possible. Rather, Tesla will always be “pure electric” in Musk’s words, fully embracing his notion that every car on the road should be electric. Musk has also pulled back on his autonomous car bluster, saying that he wants customers to enjoy the electric driving experience. That’s a lot less bullish than his earlier claims that by 2017, Tesla will have a “90% autonomous” car . Instead he wants to “alleviate driver workload”, which indicates he’s probably aiming for adaptive cruise control and auto-follow features, rather than a car that “drives” itself.
