April 24, 2019 | Wednesday



On Monday, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk presented daring, idealistic outlooks in which only his loyal people would look in the face value.

Musks promising driverless cars in a year exceeds average optimistic. Furthermore, according to Musk, the Autopilot and Full Self-Driving software could bring about $30,000 gross income to its owners per year if it operates as robotaxi.

However, how could it be a fact taking Tesla's production record and the current average salary of a usual driver within the United States?

The autonomous day of Tesla somehow came as a distraction as it trouble on its regulatory and financials. That of which will be the focus on its first-quarter earnings report today.
