According to USA Today, Tesla is in talks with Google about driverless electric cars.
Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk is talking to Google about adding driverless technology to its electric cars, Bloomberg News reports.
If the two were ever to collaborate, it could give Tesla a key technical advantage over other luxury car makers beyond its unique electric powerplant, which gives its the longest range of any electric cars. It is EPA rated at 265 miles a charge.
Google has been a pioneer in driverless car technology. It has extensively tested retrofitted Toyota Priuses in Nevada that can drive themselves. Other automakers have started dipping their toe in testing driverless systems, but none has taken the dive.
