Tesla Daily-Apr.20 Tesla News
Currently someone on twitter posted that Tesla FSD Beta 10.11.2 is able to predict someone will cross the street, and stop to avoid hitting them, and Tesla’s FSD Beta program has over 100,000 drivers actively participating; therefore, do you believe in full-self driving system? Are you a supporter of using FSD while driving your Tesla?
Elon Musk also stated that Tesla would achieve full-self driving this year, during the latest TED talk interview. Anderson asked about Musk’s latest timeline for Tesla to achieve full self-driving. Elon musk responded yes with more confidence. “And ultimately, These things — you know — in retrospect, they seem obvious, but in order to solve full self-driving properly, you actually have to solve real-world AI,” Musk said. He believes that with the current architecture, Tesla can increase the probability of vehicles avoiding an accident compared to a human driver behind the wheel. Since the release of FSD in 2020, Musk has repeatedly promised to achieve fully self-driving within the year, but none of them have been achieved. Do you think it is possible to achieve this year?
Tesla announced that it will no longer include its mobile charging connector as standard in any of its vehicles a few days ago. Elon Musk confirmed that usage statistics were super low, so wasteful. For most Tesla buyers, an extra $200 won't really make a huge impact on their wallet, but it does add an extra layer of complexity when it comes to ordering your Tesla. Plus, it never feels good when features or parts that were once standard are taken away. For those new car owners who have just placed an order and are still waiting for delivery, this policy can be described as very unfriendly, because it means that they must purchase a charging device before picking up the car, otherwise they will not be able to charge when they get home. The alternative is to use Tesla's public charging network, Superchargers, to recharge new cars, but if you catch up with the peak charging period, you have to take a chance for getting charged in time. If you were about to become an electric car owner, would you choose an electric car that doesn't come standard with a portable charging device?
Tesla confirms it will produce new self-driving taxis without steering wheels and pedals in 2024. During the Q1 2022 earnings call, Elon Musk shared some details about Tesla’s new robotaxi vehicle, he also said there are a number of other innovations around it. The new vehicle won’t have a steering wheel or pedals as it will fully utilize Tesla’s full self-driving (FSD) software. The robotaxi fleet’s launch will depend on Tesla’s FSD software development. Since the robotaxi vehicle will not have a steering wheel or pedals, FSD will need to be fully refined and ready to take on most roads by the time Tesla launches the product. Recently, Ark forecasted that Tesla’s robotaxi fleet could generate $486 billion in annual revenue by 2026. Cathie Wood-led Ark Investment Management said it expects TSLA stock to hit $4,600 by 2026, up from its current price of $985 a share.
