Elon Musk promises 'full self-driving' Tesla soon despite crashes

Elon Musk promises 'full self-driving' Tesla soon despite crashes

Edris Rodriguez Ritchie, an attorney for the NLRB, said Tesla asked workers to sign confidentiality agreements that were "overly broad" in preventing them from publicly discussing their working conditions.

The Tesla Roadster will make it to production in 2020 with a base price of US$200,000 (RM798k).

Musk said that the autopilot issue during lane-merging is better in the current software and would be fully fixed in the August update. Directors of two consumer groups, the Center for Auto Safety and Consumer Watchdog, wrote a letter last month urging the Federal Trade Commission to investigate Tesla for "deceptive and unfair practices" in their advertising of what Autopilot can do.

But Musk has repeatedly downplayed such concerns - even pointing his finger at owners who may not have used Autopilot properly - while promising a far more advanced version of the system was coming. But the company has also heavily promoted its cars' supercharged ability to fend for itself: The Tesla website promises "Full Self-Driving Hardware on All Cars", which it says offer "a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver". The tweet came days after the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary findings into the fatal crash of a Model X in March.

"In a recent Twitter post, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has said that the automaker's forthcoming next-generation Roadster all-electric supercar will boast the inclusion of a "SpaceX package", with "~10 small rocket thrusters". Dubbed the "Space X Option", it is named for the rocket company Musk also controls.

Tesla founder Elon Musk has announced that the company's upcoming Roadster sports vehicle will be offered with an optional "SpaceX package" with actual rockets.

As to the benefits, Musk noted that "these rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering". Musk said the upgrade package could even enable the vehicle to "fly short hops. maybe". But there still some limitations and rules and regulations on self-driving vehicles while on public roads.
