Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, held a meeting with investors a few days ago, at which shareholders voted on issues related to re-election of directors, the environment and governance.
During the meeting, the goal was to reach a production rate of 2 million cars per year by the end of 2022, as well as the intention to establish more factories around the world, with Canada as a potential new target.
Tesla currently has factories in California and Shanghai, and will expand two in Austin, Texas and Berlin, Germany, but they want to have 10 or 12.
The truth is that they also talked about the human-like robot Optimus Subprime that they will present on August 19, but which has now been postponed until September 30. We have seen, yes, a prototype of his hands, his robotic hands making the sign of the heart.
In January, they first announced the development of Optimus Subprime — a two-footed robot that is supposed to perform boring and repetitive tasks that humans don’t prefer to do.
The first production of Optimus is expected to begin in 2023, and Elon Musk is sure that it will change our idea of the economy:
The robot will basically be able to do anything that humans don’t want to do. It may be hard to imagine, but as you watch Optimus evolve, it will transform the world to a greater degree than a car.
There is little left to see more details about the ability of this robot, although we already know that we can never take Elon Musk’s words literally seriously.
