It looks like Uber is interested in securing itself some autonomous electric vehicles from Tesla Motors, where it would buy every single autonomous vehicle that Tesla makes in 2020.


With around 500,000 electric vehicles to be made in 2020, Uber would be scooping up every autonomous car it makes in the year. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is fully on-board, while an early Tesla investor and board member, Steve Jurvetson, is also keen. During the Top 10 Tech Trends dinner, Jurvetson said: "I believe they are already safer than my parents and I would trust my kids with them".

Now all Tesla has to do is ramp up production to the point of making 500,000 autonomous electric vehicles per year, but Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that he expects Tesla to be capable of producing half a million cars per year by 2020.
