    Is there anywhere one can find the current specific features of Tesla Autopilot that will be operating from day-one when we take delivery of our Model 3?

    When trying to compare the Autopilot systems it has become increasing difficult.
    It's mostly a difference of autonomous design philosophy for Tesla and Volvo. Tesla believes drivers can be trusted to make the appropriate decision with regards to their vehicle while Volvo wants to keep the driver from even putting himself into the position of getting into trouble with its autonomous tech.

    Does the current version of Tesla Autopilot have a full production version of AutoSteer?

    UPDATE: Found this thread on the Tesla site...
    No explanation given on why the owner had to go back to service to get it enabled with a subset of the features.


    Autopilot on my M3 is activated as off yesterday but i had to bring mine to the service center to get it done. Here are features so far:
    - Dynamic Cruise control
    - auto steering
    - auto lane changing
    - lane departure warning

    these are not yet activated:
    - have parallel auto park assist?
    - have perpendicular park assist?
    - have summon?

    i've driven a rental XC90 a couple of months ago. AP implementation is on par but Autosteer definitely felt superior on the Volvo. It barely disengaged during long stretches and the overall stability had me in awe.

    Volvo's interior was also superior to my lowly S 75.

    Those two reasons were not enough to nudge me to buy another ICE. Never again?
