Uber Could Be Tesla's Biggest Driverless Car Customer

Uber has possibly expressed informal interest in Tesla's driverless vehicles that are currently in development. 

Interest in acquiring all of them, that is. 

After Forbes reported that Tesla CEO Elon Musk hopes to release half a million autonomous automobiles per year by 2020, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick may have told the crowd at a Top 10 Tech Trends dinner that his company could be in the position to buy them all by then, according to Yahoo.

Perhaps buoyed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's new study that suggests that driverless "robocabs" could dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Uber is banking on a more ecofriendly, if humanless, future.
