Gas stations usually have convenience stores for people to kill time in, but nothing so mediocre will do for Tesla drivers. Elon Musk is toying with the idea of a retro style drive-in restaurant to accompany his Supercharging Station in Los Angeles. It’s not really given that surprising given that car owners could spend anywhere between 15 minutes and a full hour at the station, so Musk’s strategy intelligently entertains them while encouraging them to spend on a meal.
Since Musk’s tweet explicitly mentions a “retro style” we have to wonder what’s in store for LA residents. Is this going to be a cutesy Mom-&-Pop diner that serves ice cream sodas and orange freezes or is Musk’s idea of retro a little more left-of-center? Either way, modern electric cars mixed with retro food seems like the best of both worlds. We’ll be waiting to see renderings of the restaurant, hopefully sooner rather than later!
