Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims a new Tesla software update is coming in August that will bring more autonomy to Autopilot.

The news, announced in a Musk tweet late Monday, comes at a time when earlier versions of the semi-autonomous Autopilot system have come under intense scrutiny. Autopilot resources, he said, had so far "rightly focused entirely on safety".

Musk also stated that the Model Y could overtake the Model 3 in terms of sales, owing to the popularity that SUVs enjoy in worldwide markets. Musk called the new Tesla Roadster a "smackdown" to conventional vehicle companies, and after taking a look at the specs, I think he has a point.
