Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that he had a meeting with Apple, but didn’t reveal what the discussions were about.
However, the entrepreneur said a Tesla sale is “very unlikely” at the moment because the company wants to go through with its mission to build a mass-market electric vehicle.
“We had conversations with Apple. I can’t comment on whether those revolved around any kind of acquisition,” Elon Musk told Bloomberg TV in an interview. “I’d be very concerned in any acquisition scenario, whoever it is, that we become distracted from that task which has always been the driving goal of Tesla,” Musk added, referring to the company’s goal of building a compelling mass-market EV.
