Tesla is going to develop a quiet, electric leafblower— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 23, 2019
We can probably just repurpose Model 3 HVAC parts. Not a big deal.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 23, 2019
Why Musk thinks Tesla needs to jump into the yard appliance business is beyond us. Outside of the Tesla branding and design, the big selling point would presumably be how quiet Musk's ideal product would be. Maybe the landscaping company that services one of Musk's offices annoys him with loud yard equipment. Maybe they use Honda products.
Either way, a quiet leaf blower does have its appeal. Chalk this up to another thing on the long list of things that annoy Elon Musk, along with traffic and the color yellow. We'll wait to see if this will be a limited-run product like the flamethrower or hats that were sold to raise capital for The Boring Company.
