He believes if the ongoing supply chain storages disappear, the roadster production should happen next year. Also, there’s the possibility of a continued global chip shortage, which might affect the speedy car production.

“2021 has been the year of super crazy supply chain shortages, so it wouldn’t matter if we had 17 new products, as none would ship,” Musk said.

Elon Musk claims the “Bot” will be able to “eliminate dangerous, repetitive, boring tasks,”.

“It kind of makes sense to put that onto a humanoid form.” “We’re also quite good at sensors and batteries and actuators so we think we’ll probably have a prototype sometime next year that basically looks like this.” The Tesla CEO said.

The electric-only production company Tesla has a lot going, ranging from renewables, Battery packs, cars, trucks, vans. Investing heavily in putting up factories for its Model 3 and Y car production, it managed to survive the global chip storage.
