The terminology is in a right mess.

  • Autopilot (cool - it drives itself!)
  • Enhanced autopilot (hmm ok so “autopilot” isn’t actually autopilot then?)
  • Traffic aware cruise control (hold up - what? So “autopilot” doesn’t even include cruise control that’s aware of traffic!?)

You can see how they get into a mess over things like premium connectivity going and did they or did they not tell people (thinking about the TACC confusion).

So for £3,400 you get lane change and parking, plus Nav on AP which seems to be just take you of at an exit and you have to take over anyway in the UK and summon which shuffles the car back and forth. Thats damn expensive really. My wifes car had BMWs driver assist professional which does pretty much everything a Tesla offers for £2k - and it works quite well, and its getting an over the air update in Nov to include traffic lights and junction exit.

Then FSD on top is just traffic lights and city street driving (one day,. maybe) and the insurance of a hardware upgrade in the future should it be needed. That £3,400 insurance policy is quite steep. Thats damn expensive again.

I'm confused. If these are now upgrades, does that mean all cars sold from now on will no longer come with TACC or normal autopilot as standard? You have to purchase them as extras?
No.

Hmmm interesting. So technically all we'd actually get for the £3,400 package is 3 out of the 4 items listed then: Auto lane change, autopark and summon. 'Navigate on autopilot' already comes as standard.

Personally I think that's incredibly steep and not worth it considering that summon is just a gimmick and is incredibly restricted due to EU regulations.

I also find it misleading to put TACC in the £6,800 package as though it's not already included as standard.

Tend to agree. You can't drive them without your hands on the wheel anyway otherwise you'll get a different kind of summons and points on your licence.
