Believe it or not, the Billionaire CEO of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, recently made an audacious declaration that the company will launch a fully-autonomous (self-driving) system by 2021.
Even as of now, the automaker already rolled out a beta version of its full self-driving system to some selected owners.
It should be, however, noted that despite referring to the current system as “full self-driving”, it still doesn’t have the much-anticipated Level 5 capabilities yet.
Regardless of this imperfection, fresh reports claim that Elon Musk has once again made a strong statement recently by declaring that customers should expect a fully-autonomous car driving system in 2021.
Reports claim that Elon Musk recently promised Tesla customers a fully-autonomous driving system by 2021
According to reports by Electrek, Elon Musk recently received the “Axel Springer Award” in Germany where he reportedly made the declaration about Tesla releasing a complete self-driving system by 2021. The reports noted that Elon Musk specifically stressed that he is “extremely confident” about Tesla Customers getting a fully functional Level 5 autonomous car driving system soon.
While the words or “promises” of Elon Musk seems exciting, it should be recalled that he has reportedly made similar promises in the past and failed. Media reports say that Elon Musk had earlier promised to release this same fully-autonomous system before ending of this year 2020.
Similarly, in 2019 reports also claim that he said one million Tesla Robotaxis would already be on the road before the year ends. Unfortunately, both of these promises are yet to be actualized or witnessed by customers till now.
