Tesla is not interested in lagging behind other automakers in the field of electric vehicles. Commenting on Teslarati's article (“Tesla-obsessed German automakers look to solve multi-year tech deficit”), Elon Musk said his company is ready to share its software, batteries and electric power plants under license.
"Tesla is open to licensing software and supplying powertrains & batteries. We’re just trying to accelerate sustainable energy, not crush competitors!" Musk wrote.
By the way, Tesla has previously supplied batteries for early and small series electric models of Daimler and Toyota, but now these contracts have been completed. A striking example of such cooperation is the electric hatchback Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive. At one time, Musk’s company helped the Germans to produce this car, providing their technical experience.
