Tesla's swift rise to create and dominate the luxury all-electric car market has stunned Detroit. To hold that lead to the next plateau – the self-driving, mass-market electric car widely seen as the future of the auto industry – founder Elon Musk is rapidly staffing up with the best talent he can find: computer programmers.Autopilot is crucial if Tesla aims to have a fully self-driving car by 2018, and increase production tenfold to 500,000 cars a year by 2020 .Ramping up production to that level, supported by Tesla's own battery plant under construction in Nevada, is crucial to lowering the price of its cars to a more affordable level, perhaps $35,000, for the Tesla Model 3 electric sedan planned for 2017 – around a third of today's price tag.All of the large Asian, European and U.S. automakers are ramping up their work on electric, driverless cars.All of them appear to agree that the future of the industry is in electric cars that can drive themselves.Audi's Q6 e-Tron promises a 500-kilometer range without charging by 2018, 50 percent more than Tesla's cars currently.
