Tesla Robot is worth more than electric cars, says Elon Musk
“I was surprised that people did not realize the magnitude of the Optimus robot program. The importance of Optimus will become apparent in the coming years. Those who are insightful or looking, listening carefully, will understand that Optimus will ultimately be worth more than the car business, worth more than FSD.”, said Musk at the meeting where the company’s results were presented.
As TechCrunch recalls, Optimus was officially presented at Tesla’s AI Day event in August 2021 and, at the time, Musk said that the robot would be able to perform everyday tasks such as cleaning or shopping.
Note that Tesla has not yet presented a prototype of this robot, promising the presentation for the second half of 2022.
