Musk performs a dance at the Model Y's production launch in China

A solid 9 out of 10 for this performance

1y ago

Dancing is an art like any other and it is far from being within everyone's reach. It takes a lot of training to be able to shine on stage. The problem is that someone forgot to tell this to Elon Musk. So he performed a few dance steps in public that are remarkable to say the least.

Tesla's 48-year-old founder took to the stage at the launch of the Model Y at the Shanghai factory in China. He was supposed to talk about the company's plans and the future of the factory, but the musical frenzy took over. So he performed a dance - most likely improvised - to Axwell Ingrosso's song "More Than You Know".

After a performance that could intimidate the greatest dancers in history, Musk spoke about the production of the Model Y in the factory. The factory produces 150,000 models a year and will be able to produce 250,000 cars a year as soon as the Model Y joins the Model 3. The Model Y is the small Tesla SUV that will rival some models like the new Ford Mustang Mach-E.

The first Tesla Model 3s have already come out of the Shanghai plant, the first Tesla plant outside the United States. The price of the Model 3 has already been reduced locally from 355,800 (£39,000/$51,200) to 323,800 yuan (£35,500/$46,600). After subsidies, the price will fall to 299,050 yuan (£32,800/$43,100). The Model Y will be significantly more expensive, at 444,000 yuan (£48,800/$63,900).

    • Aah, sorry, forgot about the Model Y launch, though it’ll be some time before any cars will be delivered.
