Is Richard Branson’s Virgin brand ready to launch an electric car?



Where is Virgin going with this? “We have teams of people working on electric cars,” Branson said. “So you never know—you may find Virgin competing with the Tesla in the car business as we do in the space business. We will see what happens.”

If you want to get technical, and that’s why you are here, Tesla isn’t in the Space Business. Branson of course is talking about Elon Musk who I think he counts as a friend.

As far as Musk is concerned: This is what he publicly wants. Everybody building electric cars – the seas raising all boats. I personally like Branson’s viewpoint.
