Elon Musk reacts to fan's $25k Tesla compact car design

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, had a surprising response to a fan’s design for a $25K compact EV.

Posted to X on 25 December, Tesla influencer, Teslaconomics, showcased a picture of his idea for a new car.

The caption read: “A $25,000 Tesla compact vehicle will put the nail in the coffin of legacy automakers.”

Unsurprisingly, Musk wasn’t too bogged down by Christmas merriment to have his OOO on.

He replied with a comment on the design for the rumored sub-$30,000 EV on the same day.

While he didn’t exactly wax lyrical, his response was short, simple and pretty positive.

“Good design,” he said.

The short interaction has sparked excitement among Tesla enthusiasts.


They firmly agree that a sleek and affordable car from Tesla would have huge demand.

Tesla’s stock has not seen significant growth since the first half of 2023 – even after the launch of the Cybertruck in December and celebrity fans showcasing their new ride.

Despite this, Elon Musk ended 2023 richer than he was in 2022.

The brand is said to be looking for a new, affordable and stylish product to drive it higher.

Chinese competitors of Tesla have been successful in the domestic market with cheaper models and sales volume.

While Tesla sold a whopping 450,000+ cars in the last quarter of 2023 alone, Chinese company, BYD (Build Your Dreams), still outsold Tesla.

In 2023, BYD sold around 3 million vehicles, while Tesla ‘only’ sold 1.8 million.

These numbers are incredible, considering the EV market is still not fully developed worldwide.

China is at the forefront of EV adoption, so much so that there are streets that literally sound different since there’s no more exhaust noise.
