Elon Musk designed an all-electric jet in his free time

Elon Musk is nothing if not ambitious. Even though running SpaceX and Tesla takes up most of his time, he still has ideas for how he could revolutionize other industries, the most well-known of which is Hyperloop. When asked in an interview what he’d be doing if Tesla didn’t exist and he had all the time in the world, Musk stated that he’d probably be running a different version of Tesla that makes electric aircraft instead of cars. In fact, he’s already designed an all-electric just, he just hasn’t had the time to turn it into an actual product. 

If Elon Musk was not already running Tesla and SpaceX he might take up another big project: creating an electric jet. In fact, when asked during a recent Marketplace interview what Musk would be doing if Tesla didn’t exist, he revealed that he already has a design for such an aircraft ready to go. “I do like the idea of an electric aircraft company. I think one could do a pretty cool supersonic, vertical, take-off and landing electric jet. That would be really fun… I have a design in mind for that,” he said. “Then of course there is the Hyperloop, I’d probably be working on that,” he casually added. This is not the first time Musk has mentioned that he is interested in this kind of project. During another recent interview with CNN Money, Musk said that the “ideal, long distance transportation mechanism is a supersonic, vertical take-off and landing electric jet.” Musk told Marketplace that excluding rockets, he believes one day all vehicles will be electric, so he thinks it’s a promising venture.
