Elon Musk is known for having a very tight grip on the reins of the company, and his latest decision to end Tesla’s development of its autonomous driving technology is a big step forward for the company.
The move comes just days after a series of Model 3 releases, including the latest and greatest Model 3, and a Model X sedan.
Musk, who is known to be a big believer in a well-run company, made the announcement in a post to his personal blog.
The announcement follows the Tesla Model S launch, which has also been delayed several times in order to give the company time to test its new autopilot technology.
Musk said at the time that he wanted to deliver a Model S with “the most advanced autopilot systems that have ever been built.”
The latest Tesla release, which is expected to arrive later this year, will come with a much wider range of autonomous driving features than its predecessors.
The company said that Autopilot will be “the core feature of the Model 3,” though Tesla said that it will be available to customers at no additional cost.
