Elon Musk sat down for an interview during Wednesday night’s Code Conference to chat about how life is just a simulation, the Apple car, and the government of Mars. Maybe he’s an alien himself. But he also hinted about what’s in store for Tesla later this year.
Elon Musk’s interview was pretty wild. Only one man can generate half of a dozen headlines from a single stage interview. But, considering his hands in Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity, the Hyperloop and so much other stuff, he must have a lot to talk about.
Here’s a snippet from Recode:
Talking about Tesla, Musk hinted at what the automaker has planned for the rest of its 2016.
First up, Musk confirmed that the Model 3 design would be “pencils down” in the next six weeks, which lines up with the previous projection of completing the car by the summer.
The CEO also chatted about how this would be Tesla’s first car designed specifically to make manufacturing more cost-efficient and easier. That should help the company meet the massive demand for the car and its recently rushed production timeline. He also mentioned that future “versions” will likely pick up additional features.
