Teslas will now be sold with enhanced hardware suite for full autonomy
Late Wednesday, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk announced that the company would be adding its own hardware to new all new Tesla cars to allow up to Level 5 autonomy. In the automotive industry, Level 5 denotes a fully self-driving vehicle. Musk said that it would be some time before Tesla’s software would advance to meet capabilities of the new hardware available, which the company is calling “Hardware II.”
Still, the CEO stressed that all new cars would come with the new hardware suite, even if the software isn’t activated.
