    A friend sent this to me saying he found it on Facebook. I watched the Model X event and don't remember Mr. Musk saying this. Did he?

    Regardless, it still gave me a good laugh. :)

    He did not. But the timing certainly is interesting...

    He also said "as clean as a hospital's operating room". I'd probably rather breath smog than a hospital's indoor air but both make a lot of people sick. The operating rooms have different air treatments than the rest of the hospital.

    I would say innuendo construed by most. It seemed very apparent to me (at least) that he was making reference to VW without mentioning them by name. I think almost everyone in the crowd got the "joke".

    Regardless it's a joke a or, VW is a disgrace company. Driving behind a TDI is like driving up to 40 cars that emitted nitrogen oxide allowed in US. I hope VW get the hardest punishment.

    On positive side, this scandal will toughen car emission test on all auto manufactures. In the long run it benefits consumers.
