PTC Web Desk: Elon Musk has revealed that Tesla is set to introduce a robotaxi on August 8, as stated in a recent announcement on the social media platform X. The Tesla CEO has long championed the development of self-driving vehicles, highlighting their significance within the company's product lineup.

Earlier, Elon Musk had expressed intentions to produce cars devoid of human controls, with the aim of eventually achieving full self-driving capability through software enhancements. He envisions Tesla vehicles functioning as autonomous taxis, generating income for their owners by providing autonomous rides.

Although Tesla has surpassed some of Elon Musk's earlier predictions regarding the timeline for self-driving technology, challenges remain. Despite offering full self-driving capability as an add-on feature for new Tesla Model 3 vehicles, the system currently requires active driver supervision, falling short of complete autonomy.

Musk believes that Tesla's self-driving technology will substantially increase the value of its vehicles in the future. However, independent experts who have evaluated the system caution that it is still far from achieving fully autonomous operation without human intervention.

While Tesla presses forward with its autonomous driving ambitions, other companies are also pursuing similar initiatives. However, setbacks such as accidents involving autonomous vehicles have prompted regulatory scrutiny and raised questions about the technology's readiness for widespread deployment.

Meanwhile, Tesla is reportedly exploring potential locations in India for a proposed electric car manufacturing plant. This move follows India's recent tariff reductions on imported electric vehicles, provided that manufacturers commit to local production within a specified timeframe.
