Elon Musk Hints Autopilot 2 Will Be Awesome

Today Elon Musk reached out to thank current Tesla owner for believing in Tesla, and he asked how the company could improve even further.

Sean Mahony was very quick to say “AP2 please!!” to which Elon gave a very interesting reply:

This is of special interest to many Model 3 reservation holders, because we wonder if it will be worth it opting for the full self-driving feature right away.

Well, if the results are blowing Elon away, I think it is a no-brainer. At least for me, having to wait another 12 months. What do you think? Is fully self-driving level 4 Teslas going to hit the roads anytime soon, in light of the above statement?

Apart from that, it is refreshing to see Elon Musk reach out directly like that and ask what Tesla could do better. This is the kind of connection you do not get from other automakers.

It was obviously also suggested that Tesla bring the pickup truck to market soon, to which Elon answered that it will come right after the Model Y.

I simply suggested to bring about a cheaper Model 2 or Model 1 for countries like Denmark with ridiculous EV taxes. Wait, there is only one single country in the world doing that. Bummer. Maybe I should move to Norway — language is pretty much the same anyway…
