An off-hand comment about a technology that’s destined to infiltrate the entire automotive industry misconstrued then re-reported by dozens of outlets. And then Musk responds.
Creating an autopilot for cars at Tesla is an important, but not yet top priority. Still a few years from production.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk)
Tesla priority is electrification of cars, so priority is Model S, Model X, then mass market third gen vehicle & truck— Elon Musk (@elonmusk)
Am a fan of Larry, Sergey & Google in general, but self-driving cars comments to Bloomberg were just off-the-cuff. No big announcement here— Elon Musk (@elonmusk)
Musk talks to the Google Guys all the time. So using Bloomberg’s logic, since I’ve talked to Lamborghini, Winkelmann is hiring me to develop the next Gallardo.
