Automaker Tesla Reportedly In Talks With Labels For Music Streaming Service

U.S. electric car company Tesla has reportedly been in talks with all of the major record labels for its own, multi-tier streaming music service.

According to Recode sources, the independent audo manufacturer would bundle the service with its cars, which come equipped with a high-tech dashboard and internet connectivity.

As of January, the growing company had sold over 100,000 cars, according to Peter Kafka and Johana Bhuiyan’s report, and 400,000 preorders have been taken for its Model 3, due to be rolled-out this Friday, July 7.

“We believe it’s important to have an exceptional in-car experience so our customers can listen to the music they want from whatever source they choose,” a Tesla spokesperson told Recode and Forbes, without confirming or denying the report. “Our goal is to simply achieve maximum happiness for our customers.”

Recode goes on to note Tesla already has a deal with Spotify for vehicles sold outside the U.S.
