Tesla To Introduce Partial Auto-Pilot Technology In 3 Years
“Full auto-pilot capability is going to happen, probably, in the five or six-year time frame”
“The overall system and software will be programmed by Tesla, but we will certainly use sensors and subcomponents from many companies.”
States Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors in regards to an autonomous driving system.
The partial Auto-Pilot is claimed to be coming within 3 years, with full auto pilot within 5-6 years as Musk stated.
Musk wants to add this partial Auto-Pilot in the upcoming Tesla Model 3, the mass-market electric vehicle that Tesla claims will sell for ~$35,000 dollars.
Musk further added:
“I think in the long term, all Tesla cars will have auto-pilot capability.”
