Tesla to Roll Out Software with Self-Driving Focus

Consumer groups argue Tesla's marketing - and even the name "Autopilot", which calls to mind a free-flying jet - contributes to a unsafe misunderstanding for drivers, suggesting they can take their hands off the steering wheel.

The "SpaceX" option would therefore replace the back seating.

This kind of system would allow for short bursts of power to help accelerate, brake or turn a vehicle. However, as Hanley notes, these capabilities have yet to be demonstrated.

As for the flying bit, while the Roadster may be capable of small jumps, Musk has previously spoken against the idea of true flying cars, saying they'd be too noisy and risky. Indeed, he wants to make the Roadster better than the best vehicle ever made, which to date is the McLaren F1, which Musk himself bought when he first made a lot of money.

To keep the auto completely electric, Tesla would have to find a way around rocket fuels-and if we are to believe Musk, they already have.

The system will most often be powered by the vehicle's battery pack, according to Musk. This is bound to keep fans guessing as they wait for the delivery of their pre-ordered Model 3, which has still not reached production levels of the promised 5,000 a week.

Tesla's cars will in August suddenly activate "full self-driving features", the company's chief executive Elon Musk tweeted on Sunday, three days after federal investigators said a Tesla SUV driving semi-autonomously had accelerated over 70 miles per hour and smashed into a highway barrier.

While the company has repeatedly pointed to human error in these cases, the "Autopilot" branding has left some drivers confused about the capabilities of the software, which is still now more of an "assist" feature than a a fully autonomous driver/navigator. "With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features", Musk tweeted https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1005782088841232385 on Sunday, replying to a Twitter user.
