If electric cars are its core business, Tesla is interested in other ideas, particularly in the field of robotics. And among his most ambitious projects, there is Optimus. As we can read on the manufacturer's website, the goal is to create a general-purpose robot capable of performing “dangerous, repetitive or boring tasks.”< /em>

For the moment, although prototypes have already been presented, the robot is still under development. But, apparently, Elon Musk already has a fairly clear idea of ​​the price at which the Optimus robot will be sold, when it is finalized. Recently, in response to an Internet user, Elon Musk wrote that the robot could cost less than half the cost of a vehicle.

Obviously, we have to be wary of these kinds of statements from Elon Musk. Indeed, the boss of Tesla is sometimes very optimistic regarding the prices of future products. For example, the price of the Cybertruck upon release is 50% higher than that announced by the boss of Tesla in 2019.

A new prototype revealed a few months ago

In any case, this humanoid robot seems very important for Elon Musk, who anticipates strong demand in the future. According to our colleagues at Elektrek, he even declared that this robot will represent “the majority of Tesla’s long-term value”. In any case, the manufacturer is making progress in the development of its future robot.

In December, Tesla presented a new prototype called Optimus Gen2, much more impressive than the previous robot. And as we explained to you in an article, Tesla has succeeded in developing a faster and more skilled robot, with a better sense of balance, which comes a little closer to Elon Musk's vision.

  • But it is possible that 'once again, the boss of Tesla is too optimistic
