Remember in driver’s education when the teacher told you to keep both hands on the wheel? All that changes with this grand-prize Tesla Model S with autopilot and full self-driving capability. These two options — already included in this Tesla Model X for you if you’re the winner — bring new functionality to your Tesla that makes driving safer and less stressful.
Autopilot handles two tasks: Traffic-Aware Cruise Control matches the speed of your Tesla to that of the surrounding traffic. Autosteer assists in steering within a clearly marked lane.
Full self-driving capability includes Navigate on Autopilot, which actively guides your car from a highway’s on-ramp to off-ramp, including suggesting lane changes, navigating interchanges, automatically engaging the turn signal and taking the correct exit. Auto Lane Change assists in moving to an adjacent lane on the highway when Autosteer is engaged. Autopark helps automatically parallel or perpendicular park your car, with a single touch. Summon moves your car in and out of a tight space using the mobile app or key. Smart Summon navigates more complex environments and parking spaces, maneuvering around objects as necessary to come find you in a parking lot.
