Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) may partner with Toyota Motor Corp. (7203) again in the future, Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said.“If you look out maybe two or three years from now, I would not be surprised if there was a significant deal with Toyota and Tesla,” Musk told reporters today in Tokyo. While Tesla and Toyota have no definitive plans, Musk said he envisioned a larger project than their deal for the RAV4 electric vehicle.The comments come as the two carmakers wind down sales of the jointly developed RAV4 EV after delivering only about 2,000 units since it went on sale two years ago. Since that project, both companies have taken separate paths, with Toyota now preparing to sell its first fuel-cell vehicle, a technology Musk has ridiculed.Toyota has no comment on Musk’s remarks, spokesman Ryo Sakai said.While people with knowledge of the matter have told Bloomberg News that the RAV4 EV project was marred by clashes between engineers, Musk said today that Tesla has “a very good relationship with Toyota.”
