Elon Musk would rather sit in freeway traffic with Autopilot than use Waze

While making bold predictions about full self-driving cars during a podcast session with an investment firm this week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk also shared how he gets around – in a very Tesla way.

In the conversation with ARK Invest — a Tesla shareholder that wrote a stern letter to Musk after he tweeted about taking Tesla private — Musk said Tesla vehicles would be capable of self-driving by the end of this year and that by the end of 2020 human drivers wouldn't have to pay attention while the car drives and you could even take a nap until arriving to your destination.

#Autonomous cars are coming sooner than you think. Don't just take my word for it, listen to @elonmusk on the latest @ARKInvest #FYIpodcast. Thanks again for sitting down with @CathieDWood and me! https://t.co/8G4ARYGjM6 pic.twitter.com/VCpXloV0FE
