Tesla Self-Driving Car by 2020 | Assures Elon Musk
In a recent podcast interview, electric car maker, Elon Musk flaunts of delivering Tesla’s Self-driven cars by the end of 2020. Elon Musk in the bold prediction said that it will be so capable, you’ll be able to snooze in the driver’s seat while it takes you from your parking lot to wherever you’re going. With a bigger dream he also added that the cars are also capable of driving themselves, changing lanes and offer suggestions on how to be safe at driving.
“I think we will be ‘feature-complete’ on full self-driving this year, meaning the car will be able to find you in a parking lot, pick you up, take you all the way to your destination without an intervention this year. I am certain of that. That is not a question mark.” Musk said during a podcast interview with the money management firm ARK Invest, which is a Tesla investor.
According to Elon Musk, Tesla’s cars are nearly ready for fully autonomous driving. By next year, you’ll be able to take a nap behind the wheel, Musk claimed in the same interview. “People sometimes will extrapolate [“feature-complete”] to mean [full self-driving] now works with 100 percent certainty, requiring no observation, perfectly,” he told ARK Invest CEO Catherine Wood and analyst Tasha Keeney in the podcast interview. “This is not the case.” Musk said that Tesla drivers would be able to fall asleep and wake up at their destinations using full self-drive by the end of 2020. Until then, drivers will have to continue to monitor the technology and be ready to take control of the wheel if something goes wrong.
Using the social networking site, Twitter, Musk said that Tesla made zero cars in 2011 but will produce 10,000 cars per week in 2019. “Tesla made zero cars in 2011, but will make around 500,000 cars in 2019″. “Meant to say annualised production rate at end of 2019 probably around 500k, ie 10k cars/week. Deliveries for year still estimated to be about 400k,” he tweeted.
