    First of all I'm glad I found this thread. I'm hoping this keeps me interested as we're expected to wait possibly longer now than the expected 'late 2017' (Model X deliveries were 18 months delayed).

    Does anyone know if the Model 3 will have the ability to drive Autopilot say on the freeway as a standard feature? Or is that an additional upgrade you need to purchase? I read somewhere that the lane switching and parking assist is additional for 3k but still wondering if the 'hardware' is just there just in case you want to upgrade it. Just confused as to what it will really come with...

    It was stated that the hardware will be present on every Model 3, and the "safety-related autopilot features" would be standard. But nothing was stated about autopilot itself being included, so most people are assuming that it will be an add-on option. As for what constitutes the safety-related autopilot features, I would guess emergency braking, but I'm not sure what else it would include.

        and here I read and quote TechInsider - "
        All Tesla vehicles built since October of 2014 are equipped with the hardware for Autopilot, which offers safety features like automatic braking, lane switching and blind spot warnings."

        Maybe not model 3 specific, but are there any other car brands who has the same autopilot as Tesla ? Or even close?

        Mercedes S class has something similar however Tesla is ahead of them due to the software update system and fleet learning.

          I came across this post on C&D yesterday that tests the Model S, BMW, Mercedes and Infiniti Autonomous features. From their review, looks like Tesla is hands down the best.

            Tesla is working on the next generation of Autopilot hardware that will ship with Model 3. This new improved system should allow for full autonomy once the software is completed.

            The hardware, in volume, is pretty cheap to install in all the cars. The software activation fee is where the money is. I'm sure they expect the take rate to be quite high on it.

              Yes. Parking sensors are part of Autopilot hardware. Even the prototypes had backup cameras. Besides, backup cameras are required by law to be in all cars by May 2017.

              Autopilot controlled emergency braking, lane departure, and blind spot monitoring are the safety features I expect will be standard.

              Regular autopilot, parking, lane switching, etc, I expect will be a fairly high cost upgrade (At least $2000)

              What are the chances that by the time the Tesla 3 is being delivered, autonomous driving is being enabled?

              After all, with 3-4 years of Model S data, by then we must be tantalisingly close to Tesla being able to do the software switch-on.

              Alternatively, by when do people think this will be fully road ready?

                Hoping option prices are 1/2 Model S (comparable to Audi and BMW options) or at least available as part of a package (e.g. Autopilot, Large Battery and Glass roof for $7500

                Have seen surveys on options folks want. Unfortunately AWD, Autopilot, glass roof, bigger battery all come up high on the list.
