During a Halloween night interview with Recode, Musk shared his thoughts about the recent happenings in Saudi Arabia and other popular issues like Mars and the much-discussed Tesla pickup.

Tesla has been promising improvements to its Autopilot technology for quite some time now, and it seems the company will soon deliver - partially. "But I think with Tesla, we really want to make products that people just love, that are heart-stopping", Mr Musk added.

The upgrade will enable owners to operate their vehicles remotely like a big remote controlled auto as long as it falls within the line of sight, Musk also said.

Elon Musk doesn't think that Apple products "blow people's minds" in the same way that they did at one point in time.

Musk was asked to join The Donald's advisory councils but stepped down in protest against the decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement, which is created to stop humanity from killing itself by failing to limit the emission of greenhouse gases.

Ride-hailing company Uber, which is aiming to go public next year, also plans to introduce e-bikes for smaller trips in inner cities.

In 2018, Tesla struggled to maintain a level rate of production and fulfill incoming orders.

While Musk insisted that "Tesla can not die", as accelerating the advent of sustainable transport and energy production is just too important, he conceded that the transition to sustainable energy would likely still happen without it.

Still, Apple would probably argue that "running to the store" doesn't accurately capture consumer interest for the iPhone, instead pointing to smaller surveys that say customer satisfaction for the iPhone is 98%.

This will let owners control their vehicle remotely through their phones.

In an interview with Recode, Musk blasted the media, saying his respect for them has dropped dramatically.
