Tesla will release fully self-driving cars in 2019 — with a big asterisk
According to Digital Trends, the company co-founder and CEO, Elon Musk, confirmed that Tesla remains on-track to release a fully self-driving car before the end of 2019.
Musk made the announcement on the Ark Invest podcast, saying, I think we will be feature complete, full self-driving, this year — meaning the car will be able to find you in a parking lot, pick you up, and take you all the way to your destination without an intervention — this year.
I would say I am of certain of that.”
He’s confident in his team’s work because he personally oversees the development of Tesla’s Autopilot technology.
Musk went on to say that the self-driving vehicles Tesla deploys on public roads by the end of 2019 will still require a human driver behind the wheel.
