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."
