Elon Musk said in a conference last week that he could even sell cars for free and stake the whole business on self-driving by securing huge sums of money. Autonomous driving that should have already taken shape with the Robotaxi and with the final release of the FSD for Tesla cars.
Tesla's price reduction policy has already led to extraordinary sales results and triggered a real price war with many headaches among the main competitors. Tesla still has the margins given that it has a much higher profit for each car than all the others, would have the effect of making the American manufacturer gain even more market shares, which already boasts the achievement of spectacular goals such as being the first BEV manufacturer in China and producing the best-selling car in Europe overall.
Musk said: "We are the only ones in the world making cars that we could technically sell already today with zero margin, and in the future have an incalculable business exclusively through autonomous driving. I don't know how many of you will fully understand the meaning of this sentence that I just said, but it's very important." If it were, Musk would only have to focus a little less on iron earnings and more on services, represented precisely by functions such as Full Self Driving and much more that he has not yet made public, with the certainty that millions of owners will substantially forced to buy these features.
