Electric car company Tesla has revealed that it is working on a semi-autonomous vehicle that company CEO Elon Musk says will be ready within three years.
Musk says that the car will be 90 percent autonomous, and will be developed solely by Tesla with in-house technology. Fully autonomous cars would take longer to develop according to Musk.
While Tesla claims that it can have a semi-autonomous vehicle up and running within three years, other large automakers such as Nissan and Daimler have committed to having the technology out by the end of the decade.
