Nyland also opted for Ionity rapid charging stations, arguing that they replenished the battery of his auto much faster than Tesla's own Supercharger stations did.

It's worth noting that Model S, X and 3s produced in the last months have already been equipped with the new chip.

Tesla does not plan to update the design of their premium cars Model S and Model X in the near future.

Elon Musk CEO of Tesla stated the corporate will "most likely" start upgrading older electric vehicles with its new customized chip later this year - a lofty job that can involve retrofitting millions of Model S, X and 3s. Tesla announced the new chip costs 20 percent less than its previous "HW2+" Nvidia, even though is way more powerful.

Messi was red-carded for getting into a shoving match with a Chilean player, also something unusual for the Argentina captain. Brazil would go on to win the Copa America after beating Peru 3-1 in the final. "This is ruining football".

The FSD chip upgrade will be offered for free to any Tesla owners who have paid for the company's "Full Self-Driving" add-on package, which costs $6,000.

As well as his Q4 estimate, Musk has said that the software, that will allow the cars to drive without human assistance, will be ready next year, Business Insider reports. The Full Self-Driving option allows users access to Tesla's Navigate on Autopilot feature, able to guide users from "on-ramp to off-ramp" on highways and can suggest lane-changes, and take exits on its own. If vehicles do not have this feature, they are limited to the regular autopilot that provides automatic steering and adaptive cruise control.

Tesla offers two different superior driver help packages to customers: Autopilot and Full Self-Driving, or FSD.

The company is still working to make full self-driving a reality.
