Elon Musk: Tesla Autopilot Release For Europe & Asia Pending Regulatory Approval
Typically, regulations in the U.S. are stricter than in other countries around the globe when it comes to automobiles, but apparently that’s not the case with Tesla’s Autopilot Firmware 7.0 update. Or perhaps Tesla waited ’til later in the game to seek European and Asian regulatory approval.
According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Autopilot functionality will roll out in Europe and Asia pending regulatory approval. Musk is hopeful that approval will come in the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, here is the U.S., most Tesla Model S owners with capable vehicles should now have Firmware 7.0 (Musk stated that the full rollout would take ~5 days), which launched last week.
