Tesla's Elon Musk Predicts Demise Of Volkswagen, GM If They Don't Switch To Autonomous EVs Pronto

Tesla CEO Elon Musk sees legacy automakers like German automaker Volkswagen and Detroit-based General Motors going obsolete unless they move into autonomous electric vehicles.

What Happened: “If they don't switch to autonomous electric cars pronto, that is absolutely true,” Musk wrote on X, formerly Twitter. Must was taking part in a discussion on legacy automakers’ slow pace of EV adoption and eventual downfall.

“VW is dead,” one user wrote.

“The goal of most auto manufacturers is to figure out how to wind down their businesses. I've been saying this about GM for quite a while. Others are starting to follow GM's lead,” another said.
