Tesla's owner, Elon Musk, said during an exclusive interview with the BBC at his design studio near Los Angeles that it is an "open secret" Apple is making a rival electric car. He also predicted vehicles that could not drive themselves would become a "strange anachronism" before too long. An added challenge is that over recent months several of its engineers have been hired by rivals, including China-backed Faraday Future and Apple. Apple has not formally announced it is working on a vehicle, although it did recently register several automobile-related internet domains, including apple.car and apple.auto. Mr Musk outlined a vision of a future where all cars would be electric and autonomous, and driving yourself would become a hobby rather than a necessity. In recent months, its Autopilot feature has given the car a number of autonomous driving features: keeping in lane adjusting its speed as other cars cut in changing lane without the driver needing to intervene Last weekend, it gained a new "beta" feature that allows owners to summon their car with their smartphone. At both last week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and this week's Detroit Motor Show, a number of other car makers have shown off innovations in electric vehicles and automated driving.
