Fully autonomous cross-country Tesla trip to be performed this year and Tesla owners will be able to do it as well.

Elon Musk recently was asked if there are still plans to drive from NYC to LA on full Autopilot. He replied that it will be done sometime this year.

Moreover, other Tesla drivers with Full Self-Driving option will also be able to perform a similar cross-country trip.

Well, despite Tesla saying that the autonomous driving will be possible this year, it's hard to believe that the company really managed to solve all the issues and cars will be able to fully drive themselves. It would be a game changer.

Currently, Tesla sells cars equipped with hardware for autonomous driving, but the Full Self-Driving Capability as an option cost additionally $6,000 (in the U.S.) and $8,000 if added after delivery. The recent 20% increase to the FSD price suggest that Tesla is confident.
