    Tesla will use autonomous driving to service its fleet and help with stress of Model 3 growth, says Tesla executive

    [​IMG]

    There are concerns over Tesla’s ability to scale its service operations with the upcoming anticipated growth of its global fleet after the introduction of the Model 3 later this year. Tesla operates all its service centers on its own without third-party franchises and while there have been wait time problems in certain regions, the company managed to scale its operations.

    With Tesla expected to go from an annual production rate of 100,000 units to 500,000 within the next ~18 months, it will be significantly more difficult to scale service, but long-time Tesla executive Jochen Rudat tried to reassure Tesla owners in a new interview today and hinted at Tesla’s autonomous driving tech helping with the issue. more…

      I love this idea... I think we have all been dreaming about it. Some would like to have their delivery done autonomously!

        If you have a break down, Tesla could send a loaner to you and retrieve your car to the service center when towing is available, then send your car back to you and retrieve the loaner.

            They will be driving themselves off the assembly line and at some point onto an autonomous truck to be delivered to a tesla dealer.

            Is this getting crazy or what? I Love it!!!

              I am just so excited about what this technology will mean to elderly and disabled persons. I'm not as young as I used to be and it is a great comfort to know that I won't have to rely on my younger friends or children to get me around when it comes time for me to surrender the keys. The dignity and self worth that will be retained by being able to maintain this bit of independence will be immeasurable.

              The possibilities for the application of this technology are truly endless.

                      Even at 58, I find rushhour driving more and more tiresome. Would love to let my car do that for me. Would save me a lot of time to work / relax too. So I'm a strong advocate for full autonomy!
                      We still can only grasp at the implications of fully autonomous cars.
