At a recent conference dedicated to artificial intelligence, Elon Musk indicated that Autopilot, Tesla’s autonomous driving technology, could at some point be distributed to other automakers, although he did not give any names (or dates) for such an eventuality.

If other car manufacturers want to obtain a license for using Autopilot in their cars, Tesla isn't against it. But it remains to be seen with whom such an agreement would be, and at what price. With the "Full Self Driving option" currently costing the consumer US$10,000 (RM42,115), the bill could indeed be high for another brand and it could be a risky move.
