Tesla Promises Full Self-Driving Model 3

Tesla is now taking orders for a Model 3, which includes a full self-driving capability. On March 1, 2019, Tesla announced that “all customers who bought a Tesla before yesterday’s price decrease will be able to buy the Autopilot or Full Self-Driving capability for half of what those features would normally cost after initial purchase.”

Experts, on the other hand, say the “full self-driving” feature is really a partial self-driving feature that handles minor driving tasks, such as keeping pace with other cars on a highway, and still requires diligent human oversight. To most autonomous vehicle experts, “full self-driving” means a car in which a person could safely fall asleep behind the wheel, and the steering wheel and pedals aren’t even needed.
