Transitioning to Tesla Vision

We are continuing the transition to Tesla Vision, our camera-based Autopilot system. Beginning with deliveries in April 2022, Model 3 and Model Y vehicles built for the European and Middle Eastern markets will no longer be equipped with radar. Instead, these will be the first Tesla vehicles to rely on camera vision and neural net processing to deliver Autopilot, Full-Self Driving capabilities and certain active safety features.

For a short period during this transition, cars with Tesla Vision may be delivered with some features temporarily limited or inactive, including:

  • Autosteer will be limited to a maximum speed of 85 mph and a longer minimum following distance.

In the weeks ahead, we’ll start restoring these features via a series of over-the-air software updates. All other available Autopilot and Tesla Full Self-Driving features will be active at delivery, depending on order configuration.
