Elon Musk says Tesla cars will soon be able to talk

Sharing a video via Twitter where a Tesla auto can be seen talking to pedestrians, Musk said the feature may make its way to the electric cars soon.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently hinted that his company's vehicle may "talk" to pedestrians one day, asking them to hop in or leave the way on congested road. This included showing off a Tesla ride-hailing app. That clip showed a Tesla Model 3 rolling past on the street and saying "Well don't just stand there staring, hop in".

The clip shows a red sedan rolling slowly past the camera as a voice coming from the vehicle says, "Well, don't just stand there staring, hop in!".

Tesla is adding the ability to talk to pedestrians from inside its vehicles without needing to open a window.


Elon Musk has promised 1 million robot taxis on the road in 2020, with each of these taxis earning the owner up to $30,000 each year in gross profit.

To make things a bit more fun, Musk also shared a video demonstrating the capability. Let us know below.

In a reply to one of her posts on Twitter, Elon Musk has posted a cryptic tweet that has left thousands of users confused and curious.

On the other hand, this could be seen as rather problematic, especially if the speech isn't restricted to certain phrases and can be customized by the user - nothing will sooner cause issues than a auto with its windows up harassing passers-by.
