Tesla robotaxi to be unveiled August, Elon Musk reveals



American businessman and investor, Elon Musk has announced on X (formerly Twitter) that he would reveal his robotaxi at an event on August 8.

Musk made his announcement a few hours after accusing Reuters of “lying” on the company’s intentions to abandon its $25,000 low-cost EV and devote all of its resources to a robotaxi.

According to a Reuters story published earlier, citing three unnamed people and internal papers, Tesla announced that it was giving up on its goal of producing a more affordable electric vehicle in favor of allocating its efforts on a robotaxi.

But Musk went to his own social network, X, and asserted—without providing any evidence—that Reuters is “lying.” He refuted no particular information.

Musk, however, announced on X a few hours later that the “Tesla Robotaxi” will be unveiled on August 8.

‘‘Tesla Robotaxi unveils on 8/8,’’ Musk informed on his official X handle on Friday, April 5.
