Elon Musk’s Entry into the Housing Market: Tesla to Sell Homes from August 15
Tesla, the electric vehicle company founded by entrepreneur Elon Musk, is set to modernize and monetize small houses in efforts to reduce environmental damage. Musk intends to start selling Tesla homes on August 15th, though rumors are circulating, questioning the official release date and cost.
Modernizing Small Houses
Musk has always been passionate about minimising the impact of his companies on the environment. Initially, Tesla was a game-changer in the electric vehicle market. Building on Tesla’s success, Musk applied a similar strategy to small houses. He intends to sell affordable, modular homes that can be constructed easily, reducing the cost of building comfortable homes by up to 50 percent.
Eliminating Environmental Damage
The Tesla homes will be built using magnesium oxide coated blocks that resist fire, water, and mold. The buyer will choose a layout, and builders will assemble the house like a LEGO constructor. The house will be supplied with pre-installed miracle batteries (Powerwall from Tesla) that generate electrical energy from solar panels, turning Tesla homebuyers into the owners of their personal power plant. These homes will allow Musk to eliminate environmental damage from the production and operation of new homes, by building them using “passive-house” technology.
Tesla Housing and its Popularity
The Tesla housing venture is set to revolutionize the housing market by providing quality homes at affordable prices. The first Tesla homes will be occupied by Tesla employees themselves. The company is actively recruiting new employees, and Musk plans to create a small town for them to work and live in. The settlement will be on the border between the United States and Mexico, in a territory that officially belongs to no one. In a couple of years, the population of the town is expected to be in the thousands.
Elon Musk’s apartment building in Texas is made of Boxable Casita, a folding prefabricated house, with an area of only about 37 square meters. The manufacturer claims that it can be assembled and disassembled in a few hours.
Inside the Boxable Casita
The interior of the Boxable Casita is divided into four parts. The full-size kitchen has a breakfast bar, a cozy living room, a bedroom, and a stylish bathroom. Despite its small size, the house is designed compactly and conveniently. There are large windows to allow light in, and LED lamps for additional lighting, while a low cabinet serves as an elegant partition between the living room and bedroom. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, double sink, and dishwasher. The bathroom is combined, with a shower cabin and dressing table.
Solar Roof Technology
The Tesla solar roof is not visibly different from a conventional roof. This tile is created by Solar City Company headed by Elon Musk and is primarily a tiled roof that combines solar panels with the same roof structure. The solar roof is currently available in the USA, Germany, and the UK, and sold based on the location of the house, depending on the number of solar cells and batteries needed to store energy. All homes built by Tesla will have pre-installed solar roof tiles.
Price of Tesla Homes
The cost of Tesla homes will be about $9,900. However, some rumours speculate that the price tag could fluctuate based on Tesla’s revenue earned by selling electric vehicles and their production costs for housing under Tesla’s brand name.
The entry of Tesla into the housing market is a significant development. Elon Musk has always emphasized the importance of environmental protection, and Tesla homes reflect his commitment in this regard. Small houses are a crucial solution to the housing problem worldwide, and Tesla’s entry into the market is bound to provide affordable and eco-friendly solutions for all.
