Tesla is offering a hundred employees the chance to test driverless cars with $13,000 of savings on the price of a car on offer to those who sign up.

Bloomberg has seen an email from current boss Elon Musk saying Tesla needed about 100 more employees to join an internal testing program linked to rolling out the full self-driving capability. Any worker who buys a Tesla and agrees to share 300 to 400 hours of driving feedback with the company’s Autopilot team by the end of next year won’t have to pay for full self-driving, which Bloomberg says is an $8,000 saving, or for a premium interior, which normally costs $5,000.

The news organisation adds that Tesla representatives didn’t respond to requests for comment on the email.
