Tesla Google Partnership: When people think of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) they typically think about fuel efficient, electric luxury vehicles. While Tesla is an up and coming player in the automotive industry, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has already established itself as top dog in the world of online search.
On the surface, the two companies don’t appear to have much in common. However, this is not the case as you dig deeper.
With Google spending so much time and money on driverless technology, it only makes sense that companies in the automotive industry, such as Tesla, would begin to take notice.
There are reports that Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is considering the opportunity of working with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) on driverless technology. While talks may only be in the beginning stages, this is something that is sure to excite a lot of people. After all, you are bringing together some of the brightest minds in the industry to work on a project that would change the world forever.
In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said:
“I like the word autopilot more than I like the word self- driving. Self-driving sounds like it’s going to do something you don’t want it to do. Autopilot is a good thing to have in planes, and we should have it in cars.”
If Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is serious about adding this technology at some point in the future, it would make sense for the company to partner with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), a company that has been working on this for quite some time.
Of course, there are some roadblocks standing in the way. For instance, nobody really knows for sure how this technology should be implemented as a means of not only increasing driver convenience but doing so in a safe way.
It is important to note that Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) have a bit of a history. Google Founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, both invested in Tesla in its early days. For this reason, it is safe to say that they know a thing or two about what the auto manufacturer brings to the table.
A partnership between these two companies, no matter how extensive it may be, would be something special.
