Now its pretty obvious that Elon plans on the CT to be the backbone of his global Robotaxi network. They are cheap to reserve, very rugged, and will have the latest battery and FSD software. The question is... How will they all get charged?

I would imagine they will add the charging snake to existing superchargers. I bet they already have a mounting plate on there somewhere. By the way how are you planning on financing your fleet? Small business loan?

Will be like my I robot roomba.
It will back up into a special charging bay and self charge.
Just my crazy idea 🤪

Right. I can get 80% of my home value and maybe some from a few co-signed car loans. I heard a Shark say once that "a loan was the stupidest thing you could do as an entrepreneur! The only thing you will know for sure is how much and when its due! You should be more creative" Any ideas?

Sounds good to me. A while back I heard hat all Teslas have a battery pack that can drop down and be replaced robotically with a charged one. Maybe that is the future for a premium service.

Can't they just hire a teenager for minimum wage to plug/unplug robotaxis. With Ai they may even be able to interact with the teenager and give him/her dating advice,

Well, we can only hope that Rebecca Hough Tinucci might be a step in the charging direction. That would fix some of the charging issues.

The co-founder and CEO of Evatran Group Inc., the Richmond-based maker of wireless charging stations for electric vehicles, left the company in 2018.

Rebecca Hough Tinucci is now working for tech industry tycoon Elon Musk’s electric car maker Tesla Inc., according to her LinkedIn profile.

The University of Virginia graduate describes her new position this way: “First non-engineering hire recruited to build an internal team tasked with developing machine vision products for advanced manufacturing. Job responsibilities include AI (artificial intelligence) product and program management, as well as, team coordination.”
