A recent tweet from Tesla’s official Twitter account broke the news that Tesla owners have driven 1 billion miles with Autopilot engaged.
For Canadians, that’s roughly 1.6 billion kilometres.
While Autopilot isn’t a full self-driving experience, it’s a step in the right direction, and this many miles driven by a connected car like a Tesla can help all other Teslas learn to drive better through the company’s neural network.
