Musk hints at Tesla upgrades in his tweet

The news about a navigation system upgrade had initially surfaced last year, when Musk tweeted saying they were ‘light-years ahead of the current system’. But back then, the company was in middle of testing the new system.

In a series of tweets over the weekend, Musk hinted at some new features that would be present in the future models of his electric cars.

This weekend’s update came after an owner of Tesla Model S sent out a tweet requesting Musk to fix the routing for heavy traffic and highlighting the lack of navigation updates over the past three years. Musk, who is known to interact with users seeking suggestions and improvements, quickly replied to the user ‘Almost Done’.

Musk also responded to a few other suggestions put forward by users, which included sunroofs that automatically open or shut by detecting the weather outside. To this, the CEO replied that he would incorporate the features in his vehicles in the future.

The year is crucial for Musk, who is trying to convince investors that he can live up to his promises on production forecasts. There have been multiple delays in production of the highly anticipated Model 3, partly be due to the software bugs. By the end of March, the company hopes to produce 2,500 cars every week, a number that is expected to rise to 5,000 by the end of June this year. Tesla’s share price continues to plunge as Model 3 problems intensify. Investors are worried and perhaps doubtful of Musk’s huge production plans for Model 3.
