Tesla Inc`s top boss Elon Musk said in a series of tweets on Wednesday that the company expects to release a significantly improved version of its full self-driving technology within the next two to three weeks.
Subscriptions to the software for the system would be offered within a month, Musk said in a Twitter exchange without elaborating further.
The news is just a week after the company told California`s Department of Motor Vehicles that it may not achieve full self-driving technology by the end of this year.
Tesla has released what it describes as a beta version of its full self-driving program to a limited number of employees and customers since October. Musk has touted the capability on Twitter.
Musk`s tweets also said Tesla`s “Smart Summon” feature would be available by the end of this year in Europe, along with its full self-driving technology.
The Smart Summon feature, which is already available in the United States, allows drivers to use a phone app to summon their vehicle in a parking lot provided the car is within 200 feet and in their line of sight.
The technology enhancement comes amid growing scrutiny over Tesla`s semi-automated driving system following recent accidents.
