Customers confused as Tesla drops Autopilot.
Tesla has dropped the ‘Full Self-Driving’ option, and no we aren`t on april fools yet, apparently The Car Manufacturer Tesla owned by Elon Musk has removed the Autopilot function from its cars over confusion reported by the customers of the famous Manufacturer.
The Autopilot mode of course it is not a completely autonomous driving mode; such advanced technology doesn`t yet exist on our era (and so far we have seen it can have failures too) however it was Tesla`s incorrect advertising that led US customers to believe Tesla`s Autopilot was was capable of driving anywhere without the need for the driver to pay attention, on any road at any time of day and under any traffic conditions. The name Autopilot has been criticised for the same reason and has been many times in the spotlight due to the many accidents and minnor fender benders with other road users, including the fatal accident Joshua Brown suffered while his Model S was on self driving mode and ended up going under a tractor trailer

however, the option to equip the Tesla with the autopilot function will still be available, but it will be out of the list as far as the options catalog is concerned.
according to Elon Musk, who was recently forced out as formal top dog of the Tesla company after a series of tweets that were out of line and financially impacted the company`s weak situation on the stock market, including the Thailand children rescue in which elon Musk called one of the heroic divers a pedophile after said diver critiquized Elon Musk over the impractical submarine he pretended to use to rescue the children stuck on the cave.
It is understood that Elon musk is still running the firm anyway, however one thing is clear about the self driving mode, this mode offered on Tesla will not return to options lists until it’s ready to live up to its billing, which could take some time, even if it ever happens at all.
