Tesla will release fully self-driving cars in 2019 — with a big asterisk


According to Digital Trends, the company co-founder and CEO, Elon Musk, confirmed that Tesla remains on-track to release a fully self-driving car before the end of 2019. Musk made the announcement on the Ark Invest podcast, saying, I think we will be feature complete, full self-driving, this year — meaning the car will be able to find you in a parking lot, pick you up, and take you all the way to your destination without an intervention — this year. I would say I am of certain of that.

    Tesla vehicles will be better at driving than humans by the end of 2019, CEO Elon Musk said in an interview with MIT research scientist Lex Fridman.

Musk later said that Tesla's autonomous-driving technology was improving at an exponential rate. Adding that it seemed to him that the company is ahead of its competitors in the autonomous-driving industry.

  • By The End Of 2019, Waymo, Uber, And GM All Plan To Have Fleets Of Autonomous Cars Providing On-Demand Rides

    By the end of 2019, Google spinoff Waymo, Uber, and GM all plan to have fleets of autonomous cars deployed in various US cities to provide on-demand rides for passengers. By eliminating the cost of the driver, these rides are expected to be far cheaper than typical Uber or Lyft rides, and even cheaper than owning a car for personal transportation. Many industry experts are predicting that such cheap on-demand autonomous rides service will result in a long-term decline in car ownership rates. PwC predicts that the total number of cars on the road in the US and EU will drop from 556 million last year to 416 million in 2030. This decline in car ownership represents an enormous threat to automakers' traditional business models, forcing them to find alternative revenue sources. Many of these automakers, including GM, Ford, and Daimler, have plans to launch their own on-demand ride-hailing services with fleets of self-driving cars they will manufacture, potentially giving them a new stream of recurring revenue. This could set them up to take a sizeable share of a market that is expected to be worth trillions by 2030.
