Yet another madness from Elon Musk. Reported by US media ElectrekTesla gave a detailed report to the city of Los Angeles regarding a drive-in project.
Tesla’s first drive-in
If the term drive-in does not mean anything to you, it is a concept which, as its name suggests, makes you drive in. On site, a car park directs vehicles and their passengers to a giant screen. Everyone therefore benefits from the advantages of cinema while maintaining the ease and comfort that is so familiar to them. It is also possible to order snacks and drinks during the session.
It seems that the idea pleased Elon Musk, even designing his own Tesla drive-in. But what is the link with the electric car firm? The richest man in the world thinks of broadcasting programs around thirty minutes, which corresponds to the charging time of a Tesla. The principle therefore seems clear: when you want to have a good time but your Tesla threatens to run dry, use what you have left in electricity to go to the drive-in while waiting to be able to leave.
If the idea seems audacious, it is actually not new. In 2018, Elon Musk shared his wish on Twitter with a brief message. Always on the social network, he had confirmed the news last February.
What we know so far
The Drive-In should therefore soon be located at 7001 W. Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, California, and will thus occupy the place of the “Shakey’s Pizza” restaurant, which currently owns the premises. The restaurant will have 2 floors and 29 seats within the Supercharger station. The ground floor will include a large hall, a kitchen and bars. The top floor will have dining areas with bar, seating and two giant screens located in the car park. The drive-in will remain open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
