By now, you’ve probably heard that Tesla is considering adding a $500 autopilot feature to its Model S and Model X, which would allow drivers to cruise on autopilot in situations where the vehicle isn’t fully capable.
Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that Tesla will include the feature in its cars in the near future, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal.
The report suggests that the autopilot features will likely only be introduced in the coming months or years, and that Tesla could potentially add the feature to the Model S in the future.
Autopilot is an extremely advanced technology, and Tesla isn’t planning on making the feature available for the Model X. Instead, the company plans to use it for its flagship sedan, which will only have one driver.
That means the company won’t be able to bring a full-blown autopilot capability to the smaller cars in its lineup.
Tesla also hasn’t said anything about the autopilots features, which may or may not be an issue for some customers.
In the meantime, you may want to keep an eye on the Model 3, which is expected to be released later this year.
Tesla will reportedly launch the Model3 in 2019, but the automaker may be holding back on the reveal until after Model X is launched, which could make the Model 2 and Model 3 launch even sooner.
