Feb 18, 2016 -- Palo Alto, CA Today Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced a new division of Tesla Motors corporation to stand alongside their Car and Energy divisions: Tesla Cryogenics "Ummm. We just, you know, noticed that some of our customers were, um, having an unusually high incidence of stroke or myocardial infarctions as they waited for delivery of their Model X. As we researched the cause, it was pretty obvious we could do something about this! It turns out that for many of our customers, the anticipation of these engineering marvels was just getting too much. After spending hours and hours on Tesla Motors Club (not affiliated with Tesla) and our own forums at forums.teslamotors.com and seeing others get their cars, bad stuff just started happening; for some it was a stroke, for others it was a heart attack. So we've decided to take our battery cooling technology we developed for our cars, combine with the Tesla Energy Grid power units to produce a cryogenic sleep. Customers who just can't stand waiting anymore can visit our factory in Fremont, get a factory tour and then enter the Tesla Cryogenics Pod. We'll bring them out of their brief hiatus from reality when it's time to take delivery of their Model X. For now the technology is only good for a few weeks, um. maybe a few months but we hope that with our pioneering customers this could eventually be used for those with serious diseases who want to wait for a cure, and, of course, there are some obvious applications for travel to Mars, and even beyond. Space X is also taking a serious look at how we can adopt this technology for long-distance space travel." Pricing is expected to begin at $5000 with the cost reduced by $200 per week you are in the Cryo unit. "We just thought it made sense to align our interests with our customers interests, so the longer it takes us to produce their car, the less they have to pay us for the cryogenic sleep". A spokes person for Tesla Motors indicated that the $5000 cost could be covered by the $5000 deposit on the Model X. Tesla indicated that pods are available immediately for expectant customers.
