Tesla to Roll Out Software with Self-Driving Focus

Musk has promised that Autopilot eventually would allow full hands-free driving. Even CEO Musk and his wife were shown in a picture with their hands out of a Tesla sedan's windows, indicating it could operate hands-free.

Tesla repeatedly tells drivers to keep their hands on the wheel while Autopilot is engaged-the auto warns anyone who doesn't, disabling the feature and even stopping the vehicle should the alerts be ignored. It will also increase the vehicle's range on a full charge to 620 miles. Although stories about Tesla "drivers" sleeping and sitting in the passenger seat - and, unfortunately, crashing while reliant on the system - abound, Autopilot is only meant to operate under constant driver supervision. The Tesla product architect revealed that version 9 of Autopilot will aim to fix that issue.

It would require any company making electric cars in california to be certified as having a "fair and responsible workplace" in order for those cars to get a special "clean vehicle rebate project" tax credit.

Under the update, the "Hold Steering Wheel" alert appears every 15 to 20 seconds when pressure is not detected on the steering wheel.

The new Tesla Roadster was first revealed in 2017 but is only expected to be available in 2020 for a base price of $200,000 United States dollars.

The disclosure about the "SpaceX Package" for the next-gen Tesla Roadster was made by Musk earlier this week.

Tesla electric cars such as the Model S and Model X are known for their sleek looks, hefty price tags and rapid acceleration.

The electric vehicle company unveiled the new all-electric Roadster alongside its Semi truck last November.

Speaking on behalf of Tesla, Mark Ross of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP listed about two dozen other allegations against the company that were found to be without merit and dismissed. But this time it was Elon Musk's own Roadster, which was launched into space atop a Falcon Heavy rocket.

The idea of mounting rockets on a vehicle being used on public roads seems highly unlikely, but considering Musk recently started selling flamethrowers to supporters of his tunnel-making The Boring Company, he is just unpredictable enough that such ideas can't be dismissed outright.
