The City of Miami wants to engage in talks with Tesla CEO Elon Musk about battery production and more, according to Mayor Francis Suarez. This is on top of the state of Florida recently engaging in talks with the entrepreneur.
On Monday, Mayor Suarez said, “@elonmusk couldn’t agree more…would love to have you @CityofMiami City Hall to discuss it and potential solutions for the benefit of our future…”, after retweeting Musk’s comment about battery cell production being the “fundamental rate-limiter slowing down a sustainable energy future.”

Musk quickly responded about 40 minutes later to Mayor Suarez, replying “cars [and] trucks stuck in traffic generate megatons of toxic gases [and] particulate, but @boringcompany road tunnels under Miami would solve traffic [and] be an example to the world.”
Cars & trucks stuck in traffic generate megatons of toxic gases & particulate, but @boringcompany road tunnels under Miami would solve traffic & be an example to the world.
Spoke with @RonDeSantisFL about tunnels last week. If Governor & Mayor want this done, we will do it.

The Tesla CEO also noted he spoke with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis “about tunnels last week.”
“If Governor [and] Mayor want this done, we will do it,” said Musk, referring to exploring tunnels under Miami.
Many quickly responded to say the land in Miami is not exactly suitable for digging and tunnels, given the wetlands throughout the city.
What do you think? Boring Company tunnels in Miami next?
