Although he expressed his desire for it to be broadly accessible in the US and perhaps in Europe, he cautioned that regulatory permission would be required.

Musk stated his current focus is on the SpaceX Starship and Tesla's unmanned electric cars while speaking at an energy conference in Norway.

"I'm concentrating on two technologies and, if at all possible, plan to finish both before the end of the year. These are the ascent of Starship into orbit and the autonomous operation of Tesla vehicles," he noted.

According to Musk, the widespread introduction of self-driving technology is contingent on governmental approval in at least the US and possibly in Europe.
