He noted that it will be possible to drive from San Francisco to Seattle (about 1300 km), and the driver does not have to do anything to control the car. So far, the automatic control can be activated only on highways and within private property (but at low speed). The appropriate firmware update should appear over the next three months. But it will be available only to owners of Tesla electric vehicles in the United States.
