Elon Musk shows off completed Boring Company tunnel in new video

Highlights from Elon Musk’s interview with Recode

The eccentric billionaire and SpaceX founder, Elon Musk, wanted to do things differently - so the payload was comprised of a Tesla Roadster, with a mannequin dressed in an astronaut suit sitting in the driver's seat. He said this on Twitter.

Earlier in June 2017, Musk had tweeted that Tesla was in discussions with Indian hovergover for 'temporary relief on import penalties/restrictions until a local factory is built'. In a Recode interview with Kara Swisher, Musk lets listeners know that the pickup truck is more of a personal passion project, and isn't expected to see massive sales. But given Musk's past theatrics, it's also pretty underwhelming.

The Wall Street Journal reported last month that the FBI is doing a criminal investigation into whether Tesla misled investors by overstating Model 3 production forecasts. The investors involved have since filed an amended complaint.

Similarly, in May, Musk had made apparent the challenges Tesla was facing when it came to executing the company's plans for India.


"It is possible for another SEC enforcement action down the road if it turns out that the projections were purposefully or recklessly made without a basis", Dublow said.

Unconventional factory methods and failed attempts at automation forced the Silicon Valley automaker to endure months of costly delays and executive departures at its auto factory in Fremont, Calif., during a time that Musk has called "production hell". The year before, in another tweet, Musk had said he was keen to build an India-wide network of superchargers, which are fast-charging stations for electric auto vehicles.

At the time, the company said it had taken in $52m in regulatory credits for zero-emissions vehicles. The tax credit for Tesla cars will drop by half on January 1.

Tesla also said in its quarterly filing that it planned to start building about 3,000 Model 3 vehicles per week in Shanghai in the initial phase of its Gigafactory 3, to reduce the impact of tariffs.
