Auto News: Tesla Autopilot Feature Not Full Self-Driving01/31/2019
No, Elon, the Navigate on Autopilot feature is not ‘full self-driving’
No car on the road today can completely drive itself, and that includes Teslas
On an earnings call with investors on Wednesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made an extraordinary statement: all of Tesla’s vehicles today are capable of what he has called “full self-driving” on highways and most other controlled-access roads.
“Full self-driving capability is there,” Musk said matter-of-factly. He was referring to Tesla’s recently rolled out “Navigate on Autopilot” feature, which guides the car from “on-ramp to off-ramp” by suggesting and making lane changes, navigating highway interchanges, and proactively taking exits.
