my mate has got one of the top of range type Tesla cos he is v.rich. It is bit mental. He reckons it can drive It's Self. I was like, yeah sure it can lols, but then he pressed button, and it started up and drove across the car park to Pick Him Up. It was bit freaky. Then he engaged the auto drive thing while we was driving somewhere and it was quite impressive, but then it drove straight across a cross roads without stopping and he was like Yeah, that Can Happen if the Road Markings ain't V.Good. So I wouldn't trust it srs.
The other thing to watch, is if you run out of battery ur fucked. It engages the handbrake and just leaves you parked on the middle lane of the M6 and there's nothing you can do about it. You have to wait for a recovery wagon with a crane and that lifts you on he back and takes you to a charging point. That happened to my mate too srs RIP.
Edit: Other info from practical point of view, if you charge at Tesla charge point it takes 30 mins, but if you charge at i.e. Home it takes i.e. 12 hours
