It’s being hailed as a road trip but it’s really a race.
And Elon Musk knows it.
The enigmatic entrepreneur announced this week that by next year every new Tesla vehicle will be self-driving. He plans to demonstrate the technology by sending a fully autonomous car from Los Angeles to New York.
“It will do this without the need for a single touch, including the charger,” says Musk.
It’s the modern-day equivalent of Charles Lindbergh’s flight from New York to Paris — except this time, there’s no pilot.
