October 22, 2018—Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, said the option for full self-driving vehicles will be temporarily unavailable, reported The Verge.

The full self-driving option was “causing too much confusion” for customers to justify keeping it front and center, he said.

Three years ago, Musk claimed that Tesla’s vehicles would be ready and able to completely drive themselves without any human interaction by 2017. Two years ago, Musk announced every car made going forward would have the hardware necessary to facilitate this goal. Tesla has spent the years since advertising this impending breakthrough on its website as an easy add-on to the purchase of a new car, according to the report.
