Elon Musk expects Tesla self-driving cars within 2 years

01 May 17

Elon Musk is at it again, this time with the Tesla CEO announcing that by the end of the year a Tesla self-driving car will travel from Los Angeles to New York City.

Futurists’ lord and saviour Elon Musk spoke at TEDTalk in Vancouver recently, on a range of topics covering Tesla’s plans for the future. Most notably, the announcement that Tesla would send a self-driving car on a cross-country voyage from California to New York.

Also, he dropped a not insignificant piece of information about the readiness of self-driving cars for consumer use.

Musk spoke about his newest venture, Boring Company. As in boring tunnels in the ground. He wants to create underground tunnels across the world to fix traffic problems and provide more seamless travel around urban areas.

And of course, he talked about his space exploration company, SpaceX. Recently they successfully launched a completely recyclable rocket, which made it into space before safely dropping back to Earth to be re-used. They’re constantly working on giving everyone a realistic chance at space travel.
