Steve Jurvetson, a partner at Draper Fisher Jurvetson, said that he spoke to Uber CEO Travis Kalanick about the Tesla Motors RoboCar. He said that if Tesla can make cars autonomous by 2020 he’ll buy 500,000 of them. Elon Musk says that he expects to build 500,000 cars by that year, including the Model S sedan, the Model X SUVand the mid-range Model 3.
Uber will be so much happier when it's no longer under attack from regulators who say that its drivers should be classified as employees.
