Tesla will roll out an update for the autopilot software in its cars during August, which will enable full sell-driving capabilities, said CEO Elon Musk.
According to The Verge, Musk’s announcement puts Tesla on track to make good on his promise to offer full self-driving in their cars by 2019.
It is not clear what “full self-driving capabilities” means, however, and Tesla declined to provide further comment on Musk’s statements.
The Verge reported that enabling the full-driving feature in a Tesla could cost $3,000 on top of the $5,000 “Enhanced Autopilot” option.
That issue is better in latest Autopilot software rolling out now & fully fixed in August update as part of our long-awaited Tesla Version 9. To date, Autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety. With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features.
