Elon Musk, wno noted that a human-to-computer interface is "coming soon," has also announced that by the year 2020 Tesla will have fully functioning robot taxis competing with the likes of Uber and Lyft. If the video above is any indication, the claims sound credible.

For Tesla owners, there's significant money to be made as well, Musk said. A single robo-taxi could provide about $30,000 worth of profits per year and more than a couple hundred thousand dollars over the lifespan of the vehicle, he said.

"The fundamental message that consumers should be taking today is that it is financially insane to buy anything other than a Tesla," Musk said. "It will be like owning a horse in three years. I mean, fine if you want to own a horse. But you should go into it with that expectation."
