Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, said Tuesday that he would not be too upset if Apple released an electric car.
Elon musk reacting on apple car
It’s just a three-wheel car, he said. It doesn’t look like something that’s very exciting, but it will be. It will be fun to drive.
It might be faster than a Model S… but it won’t be something I would want to do a coast-to-coast drive-in or cross-country — because then you have to charge twice, right? One of Elon musk’s reactions to apple is: Most of our research is driven by use cases we need for ourselves, Apple CEO Tim Cook told us during a recent interview. If there are things that we are intrigued by, we’re more than happy to make those investments and pursue those, he added. I don’t know of anything specific in product categories. What happens next? Only time will tell!
What do you think what Elon musk’s reaction to the apple car? Please comment below! The initial difficulty programmers faced when creating games for computers instead of a console was much different from that faced later with mobile devices; early games could run on any computer as long as it had enough processing power, so game creators didn’t need to design their game with any particular target device in mind. There was no such thing as either computers or mobile devices; all they had to do was create their software program (or perhaps write their software for one) and it would work fine anywhere that users were able to download and play them.
Elon musk on an all-electric car
I hope it does come to fruition. I hope they do make a compelling electric car. If they do, I think that’s going to be good for the world
, and I think that would be a great competition. About his company tesla, Musk said It is an open secret that Apple has hired people we’ve fired. We always jokingly call Apple ‘the Tesla Graveyard.’ If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding. said Elon musk about the apple iPhone maker company. That’s where people who don’t make it at Tesla go, Musk told CNBC in September 2018.
Apple is among many tech companies rushing into investments in autonomous driving technology, which promises more convenience as well as far fewer accidents than human drivers cause every year worldwide. Self-driving systems have been one of Tesla’s biggest promises since its inception under CEO Elon Musk. But although there are various semi-autonomous components on Teslas such as autopilot and auto park, none of them constitute a fully self-driving system; for now, anyway. Google has developed similar features as part of its efforts to build an autonomous driving system for consumers.
However, Apple was only granted permission earlier in October 2017 to test autonomous vehicles by California DMV officials, and then only two months later in December 2017, Apple was reported by Reuters to be doubling down on these endeavors after poaching Dan Dodge from BlackBerry Ltd last summer. Since then three other sources familiar with Apple’s thinking confirmed that Apple is investing heavily in both driverless software development and related hardware technologies. Dan Dodge previously worked at BlackBerry Ltd as chief executive officer (CEO) until May 2015 when he left following revelations that he had made false claims about completing a Ph.D. thesis at Manchester University.
Elon Musk tesla vs Apple icar
I think it’s great that Apple is moving and excited to see what they do. There are certainly a lot of parallels between Apple and Tesla.
For example, both companies are extremely focused on using only high-quality execution and not cutting corners in any way — from their product design to their manufacturing processes. They both care a lot about aesthetics, but they also care a lot about function. Tesla obviously focuses much more on electric cars and solar energy, while Apple hasn’t said anything yet about an electric car or energy storage products like Powerwall, but I’m sure at some point there will be something. Despite our differences, I hope Apple decides to compete because if everyone is working off of the same playbook, you’re likely to end up with products that are very similar.
In my opinion, it’s really important for there to be multiple players in these kinds of markets. It brings more people and companies into an ecosystem which makes it stronger — especially as consumers have more choice. As far as competition goes: If Apple makes a great car and their system works well that would be wonderful – although I’m not sure we’d sell many iPhones! One thing to remember is that Apple has had lots of ideas that haven’t gone anywhere over time. Maybe by making a car Apple could actually get one going; that would be cool. Maybe it’ll work out, maybe not—we’ll have to wait and see. But since more competitors can only create better outcomes for society (assuming all participants try hard), I look forward to seeing what happens!
Today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has taken to Twitter to formally comment on Apple’s automotive ambitions
. While responding to questions about today’s recent acquisition of AR firm Primesense, Musk noted that he was happy with Apple’s automotive efforts since it would bring more competition, adding that he thought it was a great move. But when asked if Apple should make an electric car similar to Tesla’s vehicles, his answer was more direct: No thanks. Rather than being flattered by Apple’s copying, Musk seems to consider it a sign that Apple can never catch up. He went so far as to call it irrelevant.
Recent reports that Apple is working on an electric car put it in direct competition with Tesla Motors.
That may not be a good thing for Apple, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. If you don’t make it at least somewhat compelling and understandable and likable, then people simply won’t buy it, he said when asked about his thoughts on Apple releasing an electric car to rival Tesla Motors. He says consumers are concerned about buying a product from a company that doesn’t have previous experience in building a car. This poses quite an issue for Apple since up until now all its products have been consumer-facing software, like iPhones and Macs.
There are many things that Apple could do, Musk said of other services or products Apple could offer. We’ll see what they choose to do. By contrast, Musk thinks Tesla has a leg up on Apple when it comes to consumers’ willingness to embrace new types of technology. In fact, he believes customers will be more willing to give new tech from automakers than from Apple because automakers can relate more directly with their customer base, he told reporters at today’s Automotive News World Congress event. They’re already selling them cars! And if they produce something less appealing? Customers may go out of their way just to avoid purchasing such vehicles even if there were no better option available, Musk said — potentially driving down demand for cars across all manufacturers. If we make a bad car, our customers will tell everyone, he added.
Apple was one of several companies named as possible entrants into the automotive industry by Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne last week during his appearance at J.P. Morgan’s International Auto Parts conference. But while Apple reportedly has hundreds of employees hard at work on an Apple Car under guidance from former Ford design chief Jony Ive, executives seem hesitant to acknowledge any intention to enter that market space specifically–at least for now. Should Apple ever get serious about entering that arena, though, Musk says his company would welcome Apple to come along for the ride: I think it would be great, he said. We would love to see Apple make a legitimate effort.
More important than Apple making (or not making) a new type of vehicle, however, is whether it intends to deliver its rumored Apple Car through normal channels or through some kind of proprietary distribution system. That might depend entirely on how successful Steve Jobs’ string of retail experiments ends up being. For example, Tesla sells cars directly to consumers who interact with actual salespeople inside showrooms that look suspiciously like brick-and-mortar stores (even if they don’t have ready access to inventory). Not so coincidentally, those are much higher profit margins compared to merely peddling your wares through franchise dealerships and other channels.
