Tesla's August Autopilot update will begin to enable "full self-driving features"

Tesla's August Autopilot update will begin to enable

8 seconds prior to the crash, the Tesla was following a lead vehicle and was traveling about 65 miles per hour, before it began a left steering motion.

Tesla's COPV solution for the performance model of Tesla Roadster will pump air from the car's battery and will refuel the system automatically, so it'll still technically be all-electric. The thrusters can provide direct assistance.

Alphr says the technology needed to power the SpaceX-developed boosters will replace the Roadster's back seats.

Tesla produced the first version of the Roadster from 2008 to 2012.

Would you try the new Tesla Roadster with thrusters?

An electric-powered passenger vehicle sped up before crashing into a previously damaged crash attenuator as it approached a state highway interchange, a preliminary report from the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says. It also wants to bring a next-generation Roadster model to production. While the company moves to increase production of the Tesla Model 3, Musk has said that the company plans to launch an electric compact auto within five years.

"SpaceX option package for new Tesla Roadster will include ~10 small rocket thrusters arranged seamlessly around vehicle", Musk tweeted.

On June 9, Musk tweeted that "10 small rocket thrusters" will come as part of the "Space X option package", claiming they will "dramatically improve acceleration" and possibly even "allow a Tesla to fly".

Customers can pay $5,000 for Autopilot lane-keeping and lane-changing capabilities or fork out $3,000 more for full self-driving capability, which the company sold before it was available. Musk complains about heavy press coverage of crashes involving Tesla vehicles, while more numerous fatal crashes happen every day. The new Roadster starts at $200,000 and is expected to arrive in 2020.

Big response or a clever decoy?

"While there is still much to learn from the NTSB investigation, this alarming report reinforces why Tesla must respond immediately to previous concerns raised about its driver-assist system", said David Friedman, Director of Cars and Product Policy and Analysis for Consumers Union.
