Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has revealed some new details about their autonomous driving plans.

In an interview with Nikkei, Musk said "Full auto-pilot capability is going to happen, probably, in the five- or six-year time frame." The executive declined to go into specifics but said the system will use sensors and components from other companies but the "overall system and software will be programmed by Tesla." Musk went on to say "I think in the long term, all Tesla cars will have auto-pilot capability."

While fully autonomous Tesla's a still a ways off, Musk said the entry-level Model 3 will feature some semi-autonomous driving technology when it is launched in approximately three years.
