– There are many Tesla cars in Norway.  It's Wild – E24

The Tesla president spoke, among other things, about the development of artificial intelligence and Tesla as a guest on Nikolai Tangen's podcast. It has been stopped several times due to technical problems.


Tesla CEO Elon Musk was a guest on Tangen's podcast “In Good Company” on Monday night. The interview with Musk was broadcast live on X, on Tang's newly created account “NicolaiTang1”.

The oil fund manager asked about Tesla and whether the transition to electric cars is going slower than Musk expected.

– I think things are actually moving very quickly, especially in Norway, says Musk.

– There are many Tesla cars in Norway. It's wild. “I would like to thank Norway for its support of electric cars,” he says.

Musk says it's only a matter of time before all cars become electric, although development won't proceed in a straight line.

– The ultimate victory of electric cars is inevitable, and I believe that the sooner we achieve this, the better.

However, the interview did not go smoothly technically. Several times the line was broken.

The conversation was also interrupted when Musk tapped on the soundboard.

– Are we on? Elon are we there? “Elon, can you hear me,” Tangen asked during an interruption.
