Original Title: Official website to withdraw the full-automatic driving publicity Chantesla praised for years of "full-automatic driving" to cool?
Xin Jing Bao Express (reporter Lu Yifu) October 22 morning, Xin Jing Bao reporter found that Tesla withdraws the long-publicized "full-automatic driving" option from the company's website order page. Does Musk's previous push for "full-automatic driving" mean Tesla's long-cherished "full-automatic driving" will cool down?
In this regard, Musk said that this option will confuse customers, can not guarantee that the driver plays a leading role. Regulators involved in European governments have criticized Tesla for overstating its Autopilots, which could mislead consumers. Critics believe that Tesla is still lacking the key technology to solve the problem of autonomous driving.
Three years ago, Musk announced that Tesla's cars would be fully automatic by 2017 without human intervention. Two years ago, Musk announced that every future Tesla would be equipped with the necessary hardware to achieve this goal. Over the past few years, Tesla has positioned the upcoming breakthrough on its website as a new car selection feature that users can use with a few thousand dollars and a little more patience.
However, Tesla recently deleted cars from its website's order page to fulfill its long-term commitment to "fully automated driving".
Musk acknowledges that the company needs new hardware, especially a new artificial intelligence chip, to upgrade its on-road vehicles to fully automate driving. Even so, some industry insiders believe Tesla lacks a key part of a complete autopilot puzzle.
Tesla failed to live up to Musk's original expectation of full-automatic driving by 2017 and extended it by at least a year. Tesla is currently playing down full-automatic driving as a whole, raising questions about the company's important goal.
