Elon Musk discusses EV Features

Just like it predecessors, the model boasts of the Autopilot feature that has been controversial earlier this year, when a person driving a Tesla in autopilot died from a crash. However, Musk also revealed that Tesla had already upgraded its autopilot feature to make it safer for drivers. Although cheaper than older models, it will use the same Superchargers available everywhere for electric car users. The model is said to run for 215 miles per charge and can run from zero to 60 mph in 6 seconds.

Musk reiterated that releasing a more affordable electric car is a step towards accelerating the transition to sustainable transport. The CEO believes that the use of clean energy will be beneficial for the planet in the long run. The success of his campaign for a sustainable transport will depend on how fast Tesla can deliver the orders of its most coveted EV just yet.
