Tesla’s New Autopilot 2.0 Coming Next Week, Says Elon Musk

The newest version of Tesla’s semi-autonomous Autopilot feature could land in its latest cars by the end of December, according to the company’s CEO.

The announcement came through Elon Musk’s Twitter account, saying “Looks like we might be ready to rollout most of Autopilot functionality for HW2 towards the end of next week”.

The update will be the first one to take advantage of the hardware Tesla’s new models got from October onwards. Back then the company said that the new hardware will allow Autopilot 2.0 to offer full self-driving capabilities but only after they’ve completed their own tests and development on public roads.

According to Musk’s Twitted feed, the real-world development of the Autopilot 2.0 is well under way but we still don’t know which features will be offered first, with Tesla’s CEO only saying that “most” of them will be soon available.

Elon Musk also said that he’s hoping Tesla to release the v8.1 update for models with the older hardware and the new easter egg which will allegedly unleash more performance out of the P100D Ludicrous versions as soon as next week.
