Tesla has been able to change a lot in the automotive industry. In addition to the adoption of electric motors and technologies related to this important energy source, it has also created unique solutions.
The result of this innovation has been a constant overcoming of competition and making Tesla one of the largest companies in the automotive industry. Elon Musk was expected to prevent his technology from being known, but the opposite is the reality. The brand may soon license Autopilot and sell engines and batteries to other manufacturers.
Tesla opens the door to competition
With competition still limited in its segment, Tesla has dominated the market at its leisure. If you are competing with established brands with regard to the categories of your cars, it is in the field of trams that you have your strongest presence.
The brand and its strong man, meanwhile, seem committed to relaunching the market and creating new alternatives. To this end, the brand is willing to license Autopilot and sell engines and batteries to other manufacturers. This idea of yours can be put into practice very soon.
Tesla is open to licensing software and supplying powertrains & batteries. We’re just trying to accelerate sustainable energy, not crush competitors!

Elon Musk wants other manufacturers with his technology
Another curious fact of these words by Elon Musk is his commitment to the competition. Tesla prefers to support the brands that share the market, revealing that it is only trying to accelerate the use of sustainable energy sources, rather than wanting to crush its competitors.
In fact, this will not be the first time Tesla has supplied components to other brands. For some years the brand supplied engines to Mercedes-Benz and Toyota, when they were shareholders of the brand. Elon Musk subsequently ended this partnership and the supply of components in 2015.
More than engines to be sold
There is also the issue of patents that Tesla owns, which in many cases are publicly accessible and used. Of course, the most important ones are certainly limited, but their products can soon be used by everyone.
Curious is how Tesla might want to make this available. It does not seem focused only on the hardware of its cars, but it also includes the software that they use and that make them unique.
