    yea appears to just be software to enable it. all cars come with the hardware. paying for it before it even works/is approved seems like pointless financial gamble.

    Includes the Full Self Driving Computer

    Full Self-Driving Capability is available for purchase post-delivery, prices are likely to increase over time with new feature releases

    The currently enabled features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous. The activation and use of these features are dependent on achieving reliability far in excess of human drivers as demonstrated by billions of kilometers of experience, as well as regulatory approval, which may take longer in some jurisdictions. As these self-driving features evolve, your car will be continuously upgraded through over-the-air software updates.

    Would be approved here in current for I'd think at least for the onramp to offramp nav feature just released since you're still technically in control.

    You can but it's usually more expensive than at build time.

    autonomous in Model S/X also has "find me" mode - in a car park, summon car via app, car comes to you

    Man you'd want to have a lot of faith in its smarts to do that without fucking it up!

    I'm sure that's what they want you to think - but given it's a zero cost upsell later...

    Quick rundown on the pricing of the model 3 here:

    https://www.carsales.com.au/editoria...vealed-118772/

    Bloody sneaky factoring in the fuel savings to the quoted price. Base model is actually $70k-ish, performance encroaching on $100k.

    Much better value than the I3, and at least it caps the amount the other companies can charge for the competitors. Don't think I'd spend $100k on one though.

    Vic Police has worked with Tesla, as well as its usual emergency vehicle suppliers, to ensure the Model X is a fully operational highway patrol vehicle.

    Having rallied a ute I found this strangely satisfying. Amusing video. Does good skids in the paddock. Truckla.
