I really need one of these just put auto pilot on jump in the back and have a nap
I wish I had one! Best car ever!!!
Can’t watch the video because the ad won’t load. Happens every time I try to show it to someone
Is it true that on this Model ‘S’, the driver can select ‘Economy’, ‘Sport’ or ‘Insane’?
When Epic meets Awesome
Absolutely amazing! Auto pilot is imperfect but what they are doing is redefining the automobile. I’m impressed.
start buying shares before the launch of the model x, another share price jump
I didn’t think calling it ‘autopilot’ would have fared well from the regulatory angle. I drive a Lexus with LKA and it works great. Of course they want to discourage it but I have hacks to keep hands off indefinitely. Benz’s traffic assist works really well too. I’ve also been in Google’s self-drive car which uses 360 sonar/image feeds. In general not a single accident reported so far. Want to avoid a flying mattress coming your way? The odds are the same regardless of where your hands are.
I’m officially branded.
Old and boring tech. MB has had similar tech for years now.
WOW! I’m blown away. Keep up the good work.
So if the car stays in it’s lane based off of the lines on the road, what happens if you are on a road that either hasn’t painted the lines yet (freshly paved) or the lines are severely faded to the point to where you can’t see them? Or in the case of a lot of town around here speed limits aren’t posted, people just know what they are.
I love that electric whirr of the motors as the car accelerates!
I’ve seen a few videos now and I think it looks like the car’s autopilot feature can only follow the road? So it can’t turn left or right and give way in traffic am I correct?
I think that the Tesla Model S is really an outstanding vehicle. Elon Musk rewrote the rules of cars, and EV’s I just don’t find 120k for a well equipped Tesla to be feasible for the average joe.
wow, they really need to make a coupe version.
Im no rocket scientist but wouldn’t four electric motors be better? one for each wheel.
now if no one watches lets change the bord to 160 km/h
clearly in this demo the tesla employee took his hands off the steering wheel while on autopilot mode. Now due to the latest fatality in Florida, Tesla is telling the owners to keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times??? I thought that was one of the key selling points of the autopilot feature they were bragging about so that you should not have your hands on the wheel.?!?
Just imagine how much more sex is going to happen in cars when they are fully automated.
The launch reminds me of a roller coaster.
0:17 THAT SOUND IS SO AMAZING
somebody please answer my question! Is this all electric vehicle or is it powered partly by gas engines?
So we have a Auto pilot car and a real live Hover board from Hendo Hover……Future really is on its way isn’t it?
Not to be a pessimist but I can see a lot going wrong with this type of vehicle
Just *WOW* ! What a nice car! 😀
Can’t wait for the updated Roadster or whatever, Surely Elon can create a great supercar.
im impressed! would love to test drive one!
This car sounds like a warp-drive.
+Tesla Motors Please let me drive with a Tesla Model S! It’s my dream to sit in a tesla car!
Greetings from Austria!
I’m sure i will feel like driving a bike without hands.
Constant anxiety of crash
K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Two Thousand) is about to become reality. Whoa. =D Those smartwatches too remotely resemble K.I.T.T.s remote control device that Michael had integrated in his watch in the series. 😉
where could i find these floor led lights?
I think that there should be an un-mutable audio message that plays every time before you engage autopilot to remind the driver of his/her responsibility even while the car is on autopilot. People hate being babysat, but a short 30 second safety message would help a lot to remind people.
I look forward to buying one this summer.
What a work saver no more lifting a finger and such, and all that braking strain, glad that’s over.
If I had cash, and it was more logical to have a car like this in Saudi Arabia, I’d buy it now, but Gas here is dirt cheap (SAR0.45 for regular, 0.60 for premium) water is 1 riyal for 600 ml, 2L bottle is 2 riyals, so gas is cheaper than water, whether it’s premium or regular gas!!
What Elon Musk demonstrated is, if anything, the potential of electric cars.
What I have never understood is the various degrees of opposition to electric cars. I am not talking about healthy skepticisms. I am talking about literal oppositions for whatever reason. For example, in this case, a lot of people are saying a “chevy hellcat” is faster in a quarter mile, ICE is better, therefore electric cars are dumb. First of all, we have had ICE cars for 100 years. Second of all, if we are comparing 2 door track ready cars to a four door sedan, that should already say something. In addition, I read many comments such as “real cars has pistons, electric cars are not real cars.” My only explanation is that we are human and humans are inherently resistant to change. In the jungles, we sticked to our clan and habits and that how we survived.
Anyways, I respect people’s opinions and we should have the right to think for ourselves. However these oppositions are hindering our progress. Air pollution a tangible real issue and 0 emission vehicles are clearly the way to go. (You would agree if you live in a largish city and have looked at the sky before and after the rain.) This logically leads to electric cars and solar power, among other solutions. I suppose humans are programed to be short sighted and are driven to survive and reproduce. Changing our dependency on fossil fuel is a massive undertaking with drastic short term risks. However I am just hoping enough of us would have the vision towards the future and think not for our children but children’s children because they will be the one to inherit the earth.
It’s just my rant, as Elon Musk have said, some of these things will be apparent in a few years.
The TESLA Model S can auto-drive. Only need a software-update!
Welcome to the future of automobiles.
Hellcat is faster
Now I won’t have to ask my friend’s anymore to drive my car home when I’m drunk
Sweet exhaust sound
