Elon Musk has revealed his vision for a robotic taxi that will be based on an electric power train that he revealed at Tesla’s Q1 2022 earnings call. Musk said the car will focus on cost per mile that will be among the lowest experienced by customers. Musk revealed at his Cyber ​​Rodeo event that Tesla was working on a robotic taxi.

“There’s going to be a dedicated robotic taxi that’s going to look pretty futuristic,” Musk said on the earnings call. He revealed that the car will be designed with autonomy from the ground up and will not have a steering wheel or pedals.

“We are also working on a new vehicle that I mentioned at the opening of Giga Texas, which is a dedicated robottaxi. It is being highly optimized for autonomy – meaning it will not have a steering wheel or pedals There are many other innovations around this which I think are quite exciting, but it is fundamentally optimized to achieve the lowest cost per mile or km when everything else counts,” Musk said.

He also revealed that the vehicle could appear in 2023 and be in production by 2024, however, these timelines should be taken with a grain of salt as the South African-American billionaire is known to have ultra-aggressive timelines. Those who are there to push their team be an indicator to the market internally.

Musk believes the vehicle will be cheap enough that it will cost less per mile than a discounted bus ticket. Robotaxy is not a new concept as Waymo, Cruze and AutoX are working on the concept but all current models are based on production cars. Arrival is working with Uber to create a purpose-built vehicle for ride-sharing that will eventually be fully autonomous.
