Elon Musk's Direct Tweet
...a few more points from Elon's Press Conference to go along with that Tweet: Elon Musk predicts a Tesla will be able to drive itself across the country in 2018 | The Verge
Sweet, adjusting for Elon time, this should be a thing come 2020.
Hmmm, this makes me think about delaying my Model 3 order because I want this feature (Full Autopilot) on my Model 3.
The world is going to be so different in 2020. I just hope I don't die an accidental death before stuff like this happens.
Incredible... and sad for us early adopters. My old school pre-AP P85 will be worth about $9,000 in trade by the time this comes out Happy for everyone else though!
Very interesting & exciting but sometimes I wish he would not over-commit or over-promise because others may take the opportunity to rub his nose in it.
It's happy for us too! We get to enjoy the best today and trade-in for a better tomorrow. It's called, progress! Let's all sing along...

Full AP hardware should be available on the 3 at launch, I'd think, 18-24 months out...
I'm assuming this would require AP hardware beyond the current AP 1.0 spec. Any thoughts?
And a few years after that, if you're going to be able to summon your vehicle from another planet!
That's assuming you didn't leave it plugged in of course.
Speaking of which, and sticking to the continental version of summoning, presumably that means the auto connecting/disconnecting Supercharger rollout will be well underway in 2 years.
Well this will save them a lot of money on shipping cars around the country. All they have to do is send you an email 'Your car is complete at the factory. Summon at will.'
No, no it won't. And no, it won't do it on current hardware. Always a catch with Elon.....
That was a joke...
Riiight. Maybe in martian years.
Even though I believe there is a lot of work to get bad/questionable weather conditions handled, as well as more complex driving situations like 4-way stops, roundabouts, crazy pedestrians, map databases that don't match reality, how agressive a driverless car should be or not in various scenarios to keep itself and surrounding traffic flowing, etc., I suspect the technology will be ready-to-go before the legislation and liability discussions are completed.
For global companies like Tesla working this, its got to be hard enough to build the tech to then handle multiple countries, languages, laws, signage, etc., let alone just here in the US, perhaps 50 States each with some sort of variation how autonomous vehicles are allowed to operate or not -- so a single car can drive itself from the West to East coast. We'll see. It's certainly interesting times we are a part of.
While I know it's a joke....I mean....yeah, that could work eventually.
Sounds like they'll need to get that Trip Planner fixed, else the summoned cars will be circling the Super Chargers, charging for 5 minutes, leaving, the coming right back!
Maybe by the time x-country summoning actually comes out (well beyond 2020) but your pre-AP P85 will be worth >$40K in a couple of years, IMO.
