Elon Musk is a brilliant mind and a disrupter who is changing the world for the better. But I reckon there is the possibility of an even greener technology out there to move us around.

Oh, and can we forget about Mars and just fix earth? Thanks
Can we forget about autonomous driving and just teach (i.e. force) people to drive better. Have real, rigorous tests for vehicle control and traffic situational awareness. And the ones that can't learn, let them telecommute.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
