Tesla will roll out its FSD feature in a closed beta system test next week
The new autopilot software will be available to a small pool of Tesla owners
The updated FSD software is expected to include many new functionalities
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced via Twitter on Monday that the company’s autopilot self-driving mode would be made available in a small beta test starting next week.
The closed beta-test system, which will be limited to a small pool of “expert and careful drivers,” will roll out next week, Car And Driver reported.
The Full Self-Driving (FSD) feature has undergone a complete reboot and is expected to carry a lot of new functionality. The rewrite also updated the autopilot’s labeling software to enable it to interpret the environment in 4D instead of 2D.
Based on Musk’s recent descriptions, the updated software will build on its current “traffic light
The truth is out there, and Elon Musk is sure it has nothing to do with aliens visiting Earth.
The SpaceX founder chimed in on the idea of UFO sightings through a couple of tweets on Sunday. “I have seen no evidence of an advanced civilization visiting Earth,” he tweeted. “Fuzzy pics that are worse than a 7/11 security cam frame grab don’t count!”
No electric-vehicle startup has matched, or even approached, Tesla’s success, much of which can be credited to CEO Elon Musk.
The CEOs of a new generation of EV companies are hoping they recreate Musk’s career — but his path is a tricky one to follow.
They include Rivian’s RJ Scaringe and Lucid Motors’ Peter Rawlinson.

Running Tesla has helped turn Elon Musk into one of the world’s richest people. As of Friday, he was fifth on Forbes’ ranking of the world’s billionaires, ahead of Warren Buffett and just behind Mark Zuckerberg.
A handful of startup founders have attempted to match Musk’s success at Tesla over the years, but most have failed to overcome the brutal economics of the car business. Now, a new wave of CEOs is hoping they can learn from their predecessors’ mistakes and capitalize on projected growth in EV demand
Elon Musk said Tuesday that SpaceX’s internet satellite project, Starlink, has now launched enough satellites for its public beta.
Musk tweeted that once the most-recently launched satellites are in position, the company will roll out a “fairly wide public beta” in the northern US and southern Canada.
The goal of Starlink is to put a constellation of satellites into orbit that can beam high-speed internet to remote parts of the Earth.

Elon Musk’s goal of beaming high-speed internet to remote parts of the Earth using orbiting satellites just got a step closer to reality.
SpaceX on Tuesday successfully launched a batch of 60 satellites, bringing the total number of Starlink satellites in orbit to more than 700, per Ars Technica. Musk, SpaceX’s CEO, said this is enough for a public beta.
“Once these satellites reach their target position, we will be able to
(Reuters) – Tesla Inc Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Wednesday the company will produce Model Y with a new structural battery design and technology at its Berlin factory next year and that could result in a “significant production risk”.
The U.S. electric carmaker plans to manufacture a new version of its Model Y crossover vehicle, and possibly even battery cells at the site. Last month, Musk said that Tesla will use its Germany-based plant to demonstrate a radical overhaul of how its cars are built.
The company plans to start the production of Model Y at Gigafactory Berlin during the second half of 2021.
Tesla’s new battery cell – a larger cylindrical format called 4680 that can store more energy and
(Reuters) – Tesla’s upcoming quarterly report could put another $3 billion in Chief Executive Elon Musk’s pocket.
The electric car maker on Tuesday saw the six-month average of its stock market value hit $250 billion, a milestone toward triggering the fourth of 12 tranches of options to buy Tesla stock at a discount, granted to the billionaire in his 2018 pay package.
Musk’s compensation is exclusively made up of a series of potential stock options rewards based on market capitalization and operational goals. To secure Musk’s fourth tranche, Tesla still must hit a goal related to revenue or profitability, and that could happen in the company’s third-quarter report, the date of
TESLA IS WORKING on new battery technology that CEO Elon Musk says will enable the company within the next three years to make sleeker, more affordable cars that can travel dramatically longer distances on a single charge.
But the battery breakthroughs that the entrepreneur unveiled yesterday at a highly anticipated event did not impress investors.
They were hoping Tesla’s technology would mark an even bigger leap forward and propel the company’s soaring stock to even greater heights.
Tesla’s shares shed more than 6% in extended trading after Musk’s presentation.
That deepened a downturn that began during yesterday’s regular trading session as investors began to brace for a potential letdown.
Musk raised those worries with a series of tweets on Monday warning that Tesla’s new battery technology might not be ready for high-volume production until 2022.
He reiterated that timetable during yesterday’s showcase and then added it might take up to
