Self-driving tech timetable… Elon Musk reiterates his expectations that Tesla full self-driving technology will be available by the end of the year. "Meaning the car will be able to find you in a parking lot,
pick you up and take you all the way to your destination without intervention, this year. I would say I am of certain of that. That is not a question mark."
Tesla full self-driving technology will be available by the end of the year.
Over the weekend, avid Twitter user Elon Musk said that Tesla’s “long awaited” Version 9 of Autopilot would begin rolling out this August. “To date, Autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety,” Musk tweeted. “With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features.”
This would appear to put Musk on track to achieve the promise he made two years ago to offer “full self-driving” capabilities to Tesla owners by 2019. At the time, Musk said that all of his company’s vehicles would be shipped with the hardware necessary for “full self-driving.” That meant customers interested in the feature could shell out $3,000 for an add-on to its $5,000 “Enhanced Autopilot” option
