    I got a call from Tesla HQ 3 days ago related with my delayed Model 3.

    I dont remember the guys name because I was focused on what he is going to say about my car rather than his name.
    He told me my delivery specialist is being replaced and he is going to handle the delivery process. So he mentioned everything looks good. I asked him about cancelling of trade-in option and he did it in a few seconds. He told me he is going to email his address and details regarding it but I never got an email.

    Then I realized something in his voice. He pauses alot on almost every word and think for a short amount time before he says the next word or sentence. He also does like he is almost going to repeat the same word like he is trying to figure out what he should say next. Then his voice strikingly familiar to me as much as probably you know as well.

    We all know Elon Musk is terrible at speaking in public or his daily life. Nowadays he is sleeping in factory alot recently to fix the production issues. He is not a regular CEO that he sits in his room and relax. He usually goes into the field and play in all of the aspects of his game. He loves to chat with his peeps from Twitter. He inspects the cars as they leave the production line and lists goes on like that.

    I believe one of the most problematic issue after production is delivery. Do you think he might also trying to speak with customers to hear from the first hand what could get wrong with their delivery process? Or some other reason. He might masks his name with other delivery specialist also. But I dont think Tesla would hire someone who is terrible at speaking for customer relations position.

    I wont get surprised if he is doing it at all actually.

    You say you are familiar with Elon’s voice. If I got a call from Tesla and it was Elon I would recognize it immediately.

    I find your theory...not credible. :cool: Elon has other things to do.

    Apparently, Bill Gates used to rock back and forth in his chair during meetings. After a while, other attendees picked up on his mannerism and likewise rocked in their own chairs (perhaps subconsciously to please the boss?).

    So, maybe this guy is emulating Elon's speech pattern in hopes of pleasing the boss? :)

    Lol guys probably he wont called me I agree, even if he did he will use a company number with a fake name. Just saying his voice and the way he speaks was super similar as like Elon’s. I wonder if anyone else is here called by a guy that his voice is pretty much similar as Elon’s from Palo Alto HQ.

    Confirmed: Tesla is replacing delivery specialists with AI-based chatbots that sound eerily like Elon Musk

    "They simply couldn't hire and train delivery specialists fast enough to keep up with demand," said a source reportedly familiar with thinking. "Kapathy and his team knocked out a beta-level virtual DS in about a week." According to a usually-reliable ouija board, the DS bot will handle 10% of customers chosen at random, while the development team continues to fix bugs and tune vocal characteristics.

    My car was being hand washed and I think it was Elon and his mother doing it. They are going all in

    Yup and Elon’s grandmother asked for chill mode and sure enough - it became a feature.
