VW CEO INVITES TESLA CEO ELON MUSK FOR TEST DRIVE OF NEW ELECTRIC CAR
Not only is Tesla continuously growing and releasing new developments, but they continue to stay ahead with their research and development.
Because of the company's huge successes, other manufacturers can't help but follow along as best they can. More manufacturers are moving towards developing an electric future, just like one of Tesla's competitors, Volkswagen.
VW recently introduced their new invention in the electrical field, the VW ID3 car. Volkswagen group executive, Herbert Diess, wanted to host the Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, to test out one of VW's most recent offerings.
The two met at the Braunschweig Airport, where Musk got behind the wheel of the VW ID3 for a test drive. The VW CEO also asked Musk for some insight on the new invention.
Musk inspected the ID.4 electric SUV, which is planned to launch toward the end of the year.
Diess did not hide the fact that he is a long time fan of Musk, who has been mass producing vehicles for about eight years now. Diess shared a post on his LinkedIn account, saying; "Elon Musk delivers results that many did not think possible. They show: you can be profitable with electric cars. As one of the few car manufacturers (Porsche AG also, for example), Tesla will drive through the corona crisis without a quarter of losses."
Not only did the famous billionaire, Musk, make a trip to the VW offices, but had also visited the pharmaceutical company, Curevac GmbH. He also visited as several politicians, as well as his new factory, GigaBerlin, outside the German capital in Gruenheide.
The news has been released that, once it is completed, the newly-constructed factory will be Tesla's first in Europe, where it will be able to produce as many as 500,000 new vehicles a year.
