Rumors of Tesla’s Model 3 self-driving features have been circling for a few months, in part due to a cryptic tweet from CEO Elon Musk: “Thanks for tuning in to the Model 3 unveil Part 1! Part 2 is super next level, but that’s for later…”
Plenty of publications and pundits took that as a self-driving hint, that the Model 3 would come stocked with new features never before seen on the road. That could include Level 4 autonomy, also known as “eyes off”, where the car understands how to navigate urban environments and avoid accidents.
