Get ready for an epic meltdown by the Green New Deal Dream team – who have been hoping to destroy Elon Musk’s branding as a cool and fun dude. The left is not happy about Musk’s newfound appreciation of the Conservative-Populist agenda for public policy, even though he was at one time a favorite of theirs for bringing an alternative to motor vehicles.
The Democrat Progressives are really not happy with Musk, who purchased social media giant, Twitter, and then started talking about weird stuff like ‘free speech.’
And things are about to get a whole lot worse for them- now that Musk’s newest creative ideas are coming to fruition.
The lefty loos are not going to be happy about Musk’s plans to engage Americans and influence them into purchasing his Tesla electric cars, even though their Green (Greed) New Deal fantasies rely on ending fossil fuels.
No- they are going to hate this plan of Musk’s-all because he isn’t a Democrat anymore. Remember this is the man who radical far-leftist US Rep. AOC slammed, threatening to sell her Tesla over- for being mean to her.
AOC is going to miss out on a lot of EV fun now:
“SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has put his plans for a Tesla supercharger restaurant into motion. Recognizing a lucrative business opportunity has long been one of Musk’s strengths. The fact that Tesla owners must wait idly for a long time while charging their EVs has not escaped his notice. This is why Musk has decided to build a luxury supercharger station that will double up as an entertainment venue,” Industry Leaders Magazine reported on Wednesday.
But others will love it.
Check it out. Musk is creating something very interesting, and the Daily Mail reported about it:
Elon Musk has revealed plans for an all-night Tesla diner that would include a drive-in cinema and charging station.
It will feature two 45-foot LED movie screens, indoor and outdoor seating, and 28 superchargers so visitors can recharge their vehicles while they relax.
They will also be able to pay with the cryptocurrency Dogecoin if the proposals for the facility on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood get the green light.
Musk previously said that Tesla-branded diners could sprout up around its charging stations, having first tweeted about the idea back in 2018, and last year filed for three trademarks related to possibly joining the restaurant business.
The billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX submitted the new proposals to the city of Los Angeles at the end of last month.
Tesla originally planned to build the diner in the coastal city of Santa Monica but then moved the plans to Hollywood, on the historic Route 66.
They would involve demolishing a Shakey’s Pizza Parlor on the current site and building a new two-storey diner in its place.
The plan is for the drive-in cinema to show short features, around 30 minutes long, that are meant to last as long as a standard meal or charging session would do.
There is already a large car park on the 9,300-square-foot site but it would need remodelling to add 28 supercharger stalls and 34 total spots. The last five will have chargers for lower-speed charging.
The ground floor of the diner will include a kitchen, stool seating and booths, and an outdoor bar around the edge of the building, while the top deck will have outdoor rooftop seating and an area for theatre-style seats.
There will also be a ‘carhop area’ downstairs for staff to bring meals out to vehicles in the car park. In total there will be over 200 seats.
It is hard to tell from the plans what the decor will look like, but Tesla may be going for more of a futuristic style, despite originally billing the idea as being for an ‘old-school’ diner.
In February, Musk tweeted that a ‘futuristic diner / drive-in theater’ was being ‘planned for Hollywood area!’
Four years earlier he wrote on Twitter: ‘Gonna put an old school drive-in, roller skates & rock restaurant at one of the new Tesla Supercharger locations in LA.’
Industry Leaders mag continued:
The electric-carmaker had earlier filed plans for Tesla supercharging stations in Santa Monica but was unable to see them through. Meanwhile, on May 27, Tesla filed applications with the US Patent and Trademark Office to use its “T” logo design and two other iterations of its “Tesla” logo in the food industry. The applications are for “restaurant services, pop-up restaurant services, self-service restaurant services, take-out restaurant services.” It appears that Musk is moving forward with his plans for the Tesla supercharger restaurant at all levels.
Another thing that most people don’t know is that Elon Musk’s brother Kimball owns a chain of restaurants. Kimball also serves on the board of Chipotle Mexican Grille, which goes to show that he has the business acumen to manage the restaurant side of the venture. If there is anyone who can pull off this EV charging-cum-diner idea, it is the Musk brothers.
