Tesla (TSLA) Stock: What’s Elon Musk Up to?

Furthermore, Tesla's site now includes an area on the Autopilot page called, "Full Self-Driving Capability".

A Tesla Autopilot update set for August will enable "full, self-driving features", CEO Elon Musk said on Sunday.

Buyers of Tesla's sedan or SUV, including the $140,000 Model X P100D, can pay an extra $5,000 for "Enhanced Autopilot", a package of still-experimental features that the company says could include "on-ramp to off-ramp" autonomous freeway driving. Previous updates to Autopilot were "rightly focused entirely on safety", he said.

It also makes the vehicle the fastest production auto ever, with a 0 to 60 miles per hour acceleration quicker than any non-electric vehicles, including the record-breaking Bugatti Chiron, released this year.

Precisely what changes we'll see in version 9 is still unclear.

But despite a series of updates to the software, it still requires an owner's hands remain on the wheel, the owner ready to take full control in an emergency, or when advised to do so by a system warning.

The Autopilot feature, which includes auto-steering, lane assist and automatic braking must now be used with the driver remaining ready to take full control and keep hands on the wheel.

Enabling "full self-driving" would make good on a promise by electric-vehicle company Tesla two years ago when it began equipping all new cars with the necessary hardware for full self-driving.

In blog posts released by Tesla following the accident in March, the manufacturer said the condition of the attenuator was "the reason the crash was so severe". The Tesla product architect revealed that version 9 of Autopilot will aim to fix that issue. What's more, Tesla claims that the vehicle will have a range of 620 miles.

One Twitter user speculated that Tesla would use compressed air in the rocket boosters in order to keep its all-electric promise, and achieve the acceleration improvements touted by Musk.

As impressive as those specs are, Elon Musk over the weekend hinted that the next-gen Roadster may have a few more tricks up its sleeve.

Tesla shares closed 0.50% higher at $317.66. He has also shared other plans Tesla Inc has for the coming years, at the company's annual shareholder meeting.
