Elon Musk wants self-driving Teslas in the US and Europe by the end of the year

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Monday he aims to complete the electric carmaker’s self-driving technology by the end of the year and hopes it could launch in the US and possibly Europe, subject to regulatory approval.

At an energy conference in Norway, Musk said his attention is currently on his SpaceX Starship spacecraft and Tesla’s self-driving electric cars.

“The two technologies I’m focused on and trying to get ready before the end of the year, ideally, are putting our spacecraft into orbit… and then having Tesla cars to be able to drive yourself,” he said.

“Self-driving is projected to be widespread at least in the US and…possibly in Europe pending regulatory approval,” Musk told the audience.

Musk previously said the world must continue to produce oil and gas to sustain civilization while developing sustainable energy sources.

“Realistically, I think we’ll have to use oil and gas in the short term, otherwise civilization will collapse,” Musk said on the sidelines of the conference.

Asked whether Norway should continue drilling for oil and gas, Musk said, “I think some additional exploration is warranted at this point.”

“One of the greatest challenges the world has ever faced is the transition to sustainable energy and a sustainable economy,” he said. “It will take a few decades to complete.”

He said offshore wind power generation in the North Sea, combined with stationary battery packs, could become an important source of energy. “It could provide a strong, sustainable energy source in winter,” he said.
