Join the race to drive the future
Can a startup conquer the biggest and most entrenched industry in the global economy?
The petrol car transformed our lives, both as a lifestyle object and a means of transport. It created a new economy and changed the design of our cities, but also led to pollution, congestion and climate change. Electric cars are the next frontier that could save the industry- but will they ever be good enough?
Few people are crazy or ambitious enough to enter the automobile market from scratch – with infamously thin profit margins that require massive scale, against gigantic incumbent companies with global platforms that have been around for over a century. But Elon Musk likes a challenge.
Tesla silenced their doubters early on by doing the impossible and creating a luxury electric sportscar, but now they face the biggest trial yet: delivering and manufacturing an affordable electric family car to the masses – the Tesla Model 3. This is the car they’ve been promising since the start, the £30k electric car that will change the market forever. Hundreds of thousands have been pre-ordered, and are due to deliver around the world. Success would transform how we travel, bring massive environmental benefits and the potential to fast-track the self-driving car revolution. But amid high-profile resignations at the company, profit warnings and late-night twitterstorms, can Elon Musk and Tesla meet demand and deliver what they’ve promised?
A fascinating, insider business story of one of the most talked-about companies in the world, BLIND CORNER will put you in the driving seat as Tesla and Elon Musk face the race of their lives.
