Autopilot on the Tesla Model 3

Tesla will unveil its Model 3 on March 31.

The Model 3 is a mass-market vehicle, priced at $35,000. In some locations, tax credits will lower cost to $25,000 or less.

So a big question is, will the Model 3 bring self-driving cars to the masses?

The answer would seem to be yes, given that Elon Musk’s stated timeframe of 2–3 years until self-driving cars, and the Model 3’s 20-month launch countdown.

However, some analysts wonder whether the Model 3 can include the necessary hardware and still maintain its price goal.

According to The Motley Fool:

With Model 3’s $35,000 starting price at half the starting price of Model S and well below the $80,000 starting price of Model X, Tesla may be planning to use a more advanced autopilot hardware system in its more expensive Model S and Model X.
