Tesla continues its big revolution in the electric car segment, constantly innovating in the many features it continues to bring to its various models. One of Tesla's major (and controversial) highlights is undoubtedly its autonomous driving capabilities, known as AutoPilot.
At the last shareholder meeting, Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed that there is a possibility that the desired (fully) autonomous driving functionality could be available even before the end of the year. However, nothing is yet confirmed.
Elon Musk says it's possible, but it seems very unlikely!
Usually, the Tesla CEO has no half-measures regarding disclosure of release dates for Tesla's new products. However, this time his approach was quite different.
During the meeting, he said it may be possible to launch the beta of FSD mode ("Full Self-Driving ") for some customers. But it also revealed that the agenda may be a bit tight and the end of the development process is not yet guaranteed. Musk just confirmed that the whole process "seems to be on the right track".
Autonomous driving will come at a price that will not be accessible to everyone
Although it may become available later this year, this autonomous driving mode will come at a very high price of around 7,000 euros. It has not yet been confirmed, but should be available for Tesla S, Model 3 and Tesla X.
Currently, AutoPilot functionality only allows cars to move autonomously on freeways. But, it is important to note that this is a "supportive" feature, as drivers must be alert at all times and never remove their hands from the steering wheel.
Also in the autonomous driving segment, the "Smart Summon" feature has recently been launched, which enables the Tesla to get out of a car park by themselves, moving to the driver's seat alone.
This is one of the most popular features of Tesla cars today, having been used over 1 million times.
