If it’s up to Tesla, its technology will also be available to other cars. That wouldn’t be the first time, but given Tesla’s current product portfolio, it could go much further than before.
In recent years, Tesla has truly established itself as one of the largest global players in the automotive industry. The ‘old’ established manufacturers are increasingly recognizing this. According to Audi, Tesla is even an example in the field of battery integration and software. Then you may wonder why other manufacturers do not enter into a form of cooperation with Tesla. This may be less convenient in the long term, but it may lead to interesting products in the short term.
If it’s up to Tesla, it’s no problem joining forces or entering into technology sharing agreements: “Tesla is open to licensing software sharing and supplying powertrains and batteries,” said CEO Elon Musk on Twitter. According to him, Tesla’s goal is to quickly make electric mobility a commonplace: “We are committed to accelerating the transition to renewable energy, not crushing our competitors,” said Musk. In the past, Tesla already worked with Mercedes-Benz and Toyota, although it turned out that they did not last long.
