Tesla vehicles are well-known for their autopilot capabilities, but there has always been the option of steering the vehicle manually. At least for the time being. The electric transportation behemoth is now hoping to eliminate the need for a driver entirely. According to reports, Tesla CEO Elon Musk discussed with his staff plans to create a 12.5 million naira – $25,000electric car without a steering wheel.

Musk stated during Tesla’s Battery Day last year that the business will produce a 12.5 million naira – $25,000 car that will be entirely driverless, according to Electek. This competitive pricing point will be attained by Tesla’s new battery cell and battery production efforts, which could lower battery prices by more than 50%, according to the company.

The automobile, codenamed ‘Tesla 2,’ has been compared to a new electric hatchback that the company has been planning at its Shanghai Gigafactory in China. Tesla revealed plans last year to construct a research and development centre in China to develop a Chinese-style electric vehicle. According to the article, the corporation began accepting design entries for the program and began hiring for it shortly after.

While the Tesla 2 project has remained dormant thus far, Musk is said to have confirmed plans to release such a vehicle during a recent company-wide meeting.

According to sources, Tesla CEO Elon Musk aims to begin production of the deployable self-driving electric car in 2023. He even stated that the suggested vehicle will be devoid of a steering wheel and pedals.

Tesla has been working on distributing its Full Self-Driving Beta software to a larger fleet in the United States by the end of this month, which will be refined further to make it safer and gain regulatory approval. This will determine if Tesla will be able to launch a fully automatic vehicle.

Furthermore, the 12.5 million naira – $25,000 price point may assist Tesla in gaining a foothold in nations such as India. Tesla recently received certification from India’s Union Transport Ministry for four of its models, but the names of the cars were not divulged. Tesla presently sells the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y, with plans to release the second-generation Tesla Roadster and Tesla Cybertruck in the future.
