Tesla might be a music service operator soon, in addition to a maker of electric cars and solar energy products. Thats according to a new report from Recode, which says that Tesla has been talking to music labels to make this happen.
The planned offering could start with a free, Pandora-like streaming radio alternative, which theoretically would be tied to Tesla vehicle ownership, one imagine. This sounds like a bizarre road for Tesla to take, but founder and CEO Elon Musk hinted that the company was exploring music products at the most recent Tesla shareholder meeting in early June.
Musks remarks including noting that at present, its very hard to find good playlists or good matching algorithm for music you want to hear while driving, and that Tesla would make an announcement about how it could address that later this year.
Musks sly commentaries voiced like the taunting of someone who has a juicy secret and cant assistance but reveal simply a bit of what they know, so its likely this is another project inspired by its own experience, much like The Boring Company, which was borne from Musks exasperation with LA traffic.
As to why Tesla feels the need to go it alone here, instead of only working closely with another partner, that remains to be seen its also possible this could still end up taking the form of partnership agreements, depending on how label talks proceed.
And even though it seems weird, if Tesla is supposing ahead to a future in which automobiles operate autonomously for much of the time, services will be a key business for Tesla to have a hand in, especially those that construct the most sense for use in-car during trips.
