Taxis are becoming Uber. Accommodation in Airbnb. And Tesla will soon be a car rental company if Elon Musk (50) has his way. The founders of Tesla are known for their revolutionary ideas, which they often implement.
Musk has repeatedly announced that he will soon stop selling Tesla cars “Business Insider” writes. But the fully autonomous driving assist must be functional first. “We’ll be ready by the end of 2022,” Musk said while presenting new trade figures recently. From January 2023, Tesla could only rent its own cars.

Thus the entrepreneur is following a new trend. Many car customers are already dependent on leasing offers. But Musk’s plan is different: He wants to keep everything on a subscription and rental model.
So he planned that Tesla vehicles would be available to everyone in the company-owned fleet. In the future, you should be able to easily order your car in one app. It then moves completely autonomously to the desired pick-up point. From there, customers can drive on their personal route and then park the car wherever they want. The Tesla then moves completely autonomously to the next user.

Anyone who now thinks about car sharing – car sharing – is wrong. Because Musk wants to see his cars in constant motion and in use permanently. If a new tenant is not immediately available in the app after the Tesla Drives, the car becomes a fully autonomous taxi. So Musk’s Project One will have a Tesla taxi and subscription app.

However, taking care of vehicles can be difficult, writes “Business Insider.” Because Tesla’s boss needs a whole network of local providers for this. They have to ensure that the cars are permanently roadworthy. Only if that works will it work with Tesla subscriptions as well. (MRL)
