Jamaica Gleaner - - BUSINESS - – AP

ELEC­TRIC CAR maker Tesla Mo­tors has plans to get into the ride-hail­ing and shar­ing busi­nesses.

The com­pany hinted at the ven­ture ear­lier this week when it an­nounced that all of its cars would come equipped with hard­ware needed to drive them­selves.

The com­pany says in a dis­claimer that use of self-driv­ing Tes­las to make money with ride­hail­ing or shar­ing will be al­lowed only on Tesla’s own net­work. De­tails will be re­leased next year.

A Tesla spokes­woman wouldn’t com­ment on the mat­ter.

Tesla an­nounced Wed­nes­day that all cars in­clud­ing the low­er­cost Model 3 would have more cam­eras, sen­sors, radar and com­put­ing power so they can drive them­selves. Soft­ware would be up­dated over the in­ter­net to al­low the cars to do more as the fea­tures are tested. Tesla Mo­tors CEO Elon Musk.
