Tesla CEO Elon Musk
Their goal: to accelerate the advancement of green car technology, and how it is made available, affordable to motorists around the world. Musk talks about how the building of walls, the "laying of intellectual property landmines," would be doing the opposite of what Tesla stands for.
He also talks about the competition being the mass of gasoline cars being manufactured, and not the minority of non-Tesla electric vehicles produced by competitors. Tesla, he admits, cannot assemble vehicles "fast enough to address the carbon crisis."
Now, Tesla is sharing its patents in the hopes that other can pool their intellectual resources can improve on these technologies while making these more affordable. Soon, car makers could begin manufacturing larger fleets of quality electric vehicles, and selling them to the public at more affordable prices.
Tesla Motors is ushering in a green car revolution. It's probable electric cars could outsell gasoline cars in the near future. Let's hope that happens soon.
