An entire alphabet soup of Feds have been paying much more attention recently to our celebrity CEO and his company.
There is a certain, very expensive option, which his company was hoping to customers, for a few extra thousand dollars.
The problem was that this option didn’t really exist, and never really would. Very recently, the Feds quietly reached out to the company, and told them to end this charade or else.
The company just abruptly stopped offering this non-existent option, and may owe consumers hundreds of millions of dollars.
Tesla Removes ‘Full Self Driving’ Option From New Vehicle Ordering
Late Thursday, Tesla revealed a brand new “mid-range” Model 3 which can travel up to 260-miles on a single charge and is priced at $45,000 before incentives. With the release, Tesla also silently dropped its most ambitious to-be-released features from the entire line of its cars; the Full Self Driving upgrade.
According to CEO Elon Musk, the option was causing “too much confusion,” though there was no elaboration on the comment. It’s unclear if this was a reference to drivers misunderstanding the difference between Enhanced Autopilot and Full Self Driving features, or drivers simply misusing the Autopilot suite and getting into accidents due to the assumption that they wouldn’t have to watch the road.- Source
