What is Tesla Robotaxi? A New Driverless Experience

Many companies are developing cars in pursuit of the latest technological trends, making them follow the latest innovations to offer high-quality products to customers. 

Creating a digitally developed vehicle is reasonable to enhance some desired features we anticipate seeing in the Robotaxi, such as big sliding doors providing easy access, face-to-face seating, 4-wheel steering, easier cleaning, etc. The Robotaxi would not have pedals or a steering wheel.  

As such, Tesla might even produce a range of Robotaxis that better meets needs. Tesla could offer a vehicle that is better suited for resting, which could let you sleep on the way to your destination. 

So, when will Tesla Robotaxi be available? Tesla’s CEO and billionaire, Elon Musk aims at 2024 for large production of his Robotaxi cars, noting that the self-driving vehicles will be a “massive driver” of the company’s growth. 

Although Musk, sold more than 10 percent of his stock in the automaker to pay more tax, Tesla’s Robotaxi started with a plan called “Part Deux,” published in 2016, a concept described as Tesla’s full self-driving (FSD) capability. 

The Robotaxi will try to guarantee its lowest cost per mile possible, and in reference to Tesla’s projections, the cost to ride a Robotaxi should be lower than a bus or subway ticket. 

“I think we will provide consumers with, by far, the lowest cost per mile of transport that they’ve ever experienced,” Musk said.  

How Many Teslas Can You Have in the Robotaxi Fleet? 

Originally, Tesla said that once they achieve actual “full self-driving, they would create a “Tesla Network” taxi service that would take advantage of the combined Tesla-owned vehicles and cars from customers able to let their cars be hired out when not in use. 

As such, it was suggested that if a customer is inclined to rent out his car, it will let him gain a significant amount of money. 

Getting into more details, the company proposed a plan to take existing Tesla cars that came off-lease and quickly transfer them to be in the Robotaxi fleet.  

The switch would be easy on something like the tesla model 3 Robotaxi – take out the wheel and pedals, then include a nice plate where the wheel was with a few other minor changes. 

Tesla Robotaxi Benefits 

On that same note, a significant advantage is that a lease customer has used up around 40 percent of the devaluation of the vehicle, enjoying it while it was new, for the fact that nobody worries if their taxi is three years old, so it’s suitable for the market.

In other words, they can operate a Robotaxi fleet at only 60 percent of the vehicle cost in comparison to anybody trying to build a dedicated Robotaxi who has to buy the new vehicle. 

The vehicle cost is still the most significant cost component (especially with electric cars), so it’s a big win. 

Tesla Robotaxi impact on uber will be enormous, seeing that it will be considered a big competition for the Uber market expanded widely in the last couple of years, even though it has witnessed some losses. 

It is worth mentioning that Uber was losing money in 2020 as it expanded its food delivery business and developed technology for driverless cars. 


Driverless cars are planned to become the new norm, entirely changing the concept of cars being driven by drivers, making it a new technological revolution. Many countries will start adopting driverless cars, including Dubai and India, giving their citizens a new experience.
