Musk: Volkswagen’s ‘Trickery’ May Have Been Only Option


Speaking to Auto Express ahead of Tesla's first European factory opening, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said internal combustion engines have hit their physical limit for efficiency and that Volkswagen engineers may have resorted to lying out of necessity.

"There must have been lots of VW engineers under pressure — they've run into a physical wall of what might be possible so trickery was the only option," he told the publication.

Musk told the group that VW's salvation may only be in leading the charge (literally and figuratively) toward electric vehicles.

"All car companies will go electric eventually," he said, according to Auto Express. "Any car company that doesn't go electric will be out of business."

Volkswagen currently sells its e-Golf in California and 10 other markets.
