Tesla would like to show a prototype of an electric pickup this year also it’s working on bringing the Model Y and Class 2 semi truck to production.
But actually, who cares about any of that because Tesla apparently has a layout for a submarine vehicle just sitting around collecting dust.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the electric submarine car in response to a question during the company’s annual shareholder’s meeting Tuesday in Mountain View, Calif.. The shareholder asked if Tesla had contemplated building an aquatic car, meaning that a vehicle that could travel on roads, and then transition into or under water.
It ends up a layout exists for a submarine automobile inspired from the Lotus Esprit featured in the James Bond movie, the Spy Who Loved Me.
“I believed that was like the coolest thing,” Musk said, adding that he possesses the automobile from the movie.
Musk said it’s possible to make a working version, but added “I think the market for this could be small — small, but passionate. ”
Assembling such a a vehicle could be a diversion, Musk said. However, he left the chance open that maybe Tesla would allow it to be a show car.
