Tesla Inc.'s (NASDAQ:TSLA) boss Elon Musk is “full of crap” when it comes to self-driving cars, at least that’s according to a key executive at a rival automaker.

Scot Miller, who leads General Motor’s autonomous driving projects, is quoted in media reports suggesting that Musk’s Tesla Model 3 is not as advanced as some people think.

“I think he’s full of crap,” Miller is quoted as saying of Elon Musk and the proposed price point of the new Tesla model.

“To be what an SAE Level Five full autonomous system is, I don’t think he has the content to do that.”

He is also quoted in an Australian press report as saying that it would be irresponsible to say that the Model 3 has fully autonomous capability.
