Back in 2016, Elon Musk had the imprudence to declare that he liked the idea of creating small electric-powered vertical take-off and landing aircraft. Later, he changed his attitude to this topic to a more skeptical one, citing the insecurity of filling the sky over cities with flying objects and increasing noise pollution. Experts believe that Tesla will unwittingly be involved in the development of electric air transport.
Analysts at Morgan Stanley presented their forecasts on this topic, as noted by Electrek. The authors of the analytical note are convinced that Tesla will not be able to avoid participation in the development of airborne electric transport, since it solves problems similar to ground-based ones, and this company will accumulate a sufficient amount of competence in the field of electric transport to share with partners, mastering the airspace.
Morgan Stanley believes that the capacity of the market for air transportation services using electric transport will reach $ 9 billion by 2050. And if now the authors of the forecast set the market value of Tesla shares at $ 900, excluding this factor, then air transport could add another $ 100 to it. a modest version. Recently, Elon Musk has adhered to the idea that it is more expedient to unload the roads of megacities by transferring traffic to underground tunnels, and not to the sky above residential areas.
