Elon Musk Says Tesla’s Humanoid Optimus Robot Could Launch Next Year

Tesla’s electric vehicle business was undoubtedly the focus of the company’s quarterly earnings call, but executives took the opportunity to highlight progress on its humanoid robot, Optimus. It is planned to begin using them at our own enterprises by the end of this year, and they will go on sale next year.

Already, as Elon Musk explained at his quarterly earnings call, Optimus humanoid robots are being used in Tesla laboratories to perform tasks specific to the company’s manufacturing operations. In his opinion, by the end of this year these robots will be able to find application in real production operations at Tesla enterprises. By the end of 2025, the company hopes to begin selling Optimus robots to third-party customers. Musk once again emphasized that the sale of humanoid robots will eventually become Tesla’s largest source of revenue.

Previously, the company’s CEO said that in the conditions of mass production, the humanoid robot Optimus could cost customers less than half an electric car, which roughly corresponds to the range of $20,000 to $25,000 in the scale of current Tesla prices. Elon Musk expects the market for humanoid robots to reach 10 or 20 billion units. In fact, they will outnumber the population of our planet.
