Tesla software upgrade leads to full autonomy

Tesla’s ‘Autopilot’ is getting an upgrade

Tesla's August Autopilot update will begin to enable "full self-driving features"

"The software update is good news", Elazar Advisors' Chaim Siegel was quoted as saying by Reuters, adding the stock was still benefiting from Musk's last week's Model 3 prediction that Tesla will likely hit a "5,000 vehicle week by the end of this month".

Musk also mulled possibility of the rocket thrusters helping the vehicle getting some serious air. This means that a bottle containing high-pressure air will be used to add thrust to the auto without actually strapping a rocket to the back of your vehicle - something that's probably not going to make your auto zero-emission. To help compensate for the extra power draw, Tesla is designing a new 200kWh pack that can put out a maximum of 600 miles of range on a single charge. By using multiple systems, Musk hopes it can be used to decelerate the auto and even provide thrust for sharp turns.

Tesla Roadster

The next-gen Roadster was unveiled by Tesla Motors at an event held in November 2017; with its production likely to commence in 2020. This is in keeping with the functionality promised by Elon Musk on Twitter.

Judging by Musk's tweets, it looks as if you'll only lose out on the backseats if you opt for the rocket-powered version of the Tesla Roadster.

The rocket boosters take the form of a "sophisticated bottle" that fires bursts of high-pressure air out the back of the sports auto, the electric-transport news site adds. When first introducing the new Roadster, Musk called it a "hardcore smackdown to gas-powered cars", that would make petrol-burners look like "steam engines with a side of quiche", according to Business Insider.

Tesla will get the new software update after two years as Version 8 was announced back in 2016, which brought a revamped user interface, a set of new features and significant improvements to Autopilot.
