This release is one of the biggest in terms of excitement about the features being made available, but it’s also quite complex to understand who gets what since different motors, AP hardware, and other stuff play an important part in it. We created a comprehensive guide to summary what is in the release and what your Tesla will get, we hope you find it helpful!
