Tesla’s Enhanced Autopilot Rolling Out Today To Small Fleet, End Of Week For All, Ludicrous + Coming Too
Just when those first 1,000 lucky Tesla owners began reporting some new Autopilot 2.0 functionality coming online, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter on Sunday to announce that a “new rev” or new revision for Autopilot 2.0 will roll out to those same 1,000 owners starting today.
According to Musk, the new revision will improve functionality on Autopilot 1.0 vehicles too.
The 1,000 owners that get the new revision will see it in active mode, whereas the remaining Tesla Autopilot 2.0 owners won’t notice that it’s there because it will be operating in shadow mode. Musk says that Tesla hopes to flip all capable vehicles over to active mode by the end of this week if “all looks good.”
Lastly, as if Ludicrous mode isn’t quick enough, Musk says Ludicrous + will roll out along with the new revision for Autopilot 2.0. Ludicrous + will slash the 0 to 60 MPH time for the Model S P100DL down from 2.5 seconds to just 2.4 seconds. Because 2.5 seconds is so last year…
