Although not yet driver-less, the software enhanced Tesla will:

  1. Self-park
  2. Change Lanes
  3. Use assisted steering to maintain speed, and distance from, other cars
  4. Warn the driver against drifting out of the lane

Tesla; the S is for Submersible

Tesla Model S Submarine Easter Egg

 

This week I had an opportunity to ride in a Tesla. The driver commented on how it was the first car to make him feel like an 18 year old behind the wheel. Here's another example of how Tesla is bringing the fun.

Spring is (finally) here and in tribute to the season I present an early Easter egg, courtesy of Tesla.
