Bosch Working on Self-Driving Vehicle Technology, Use 2014 Tesla Model S for Demonstration, More Details!
Tesla’s Model S was the vehicle of choice for the showcase of Bosch’s autonomous driving technology, and according to reports, Bosch have managed to implement various parts of a self-driving vehicle into their current project. The car is already capable of adaptive cruise control, supports road sign assist, and automated parking. And now, the company is also looking to add a traffic jam assist, which will bring cars one step closer to true self-driving vehicles, allowing them to take control of the car’s acceleration, braking and steering in order to deliver a more efficient driving experience.
Reviewers agree that the all-electric Tesla Model S delivers immediate power from a stop and instantaneous acceleration that few cars can match on the highway. Some say the Model S is exceptionally quiet at speed, and feels quicker than many luxury sports cars. The base Model S gets 94/97 mpg-equivalent city/highway, and has a 208-mile range. Reviewers report that the Tesla Model S has strong brakes and quick steering. They also praise its smooth ride and nimble handling, especially when equipped with an adjustable air suspension.

Totalling 20,000 in sales so far, it even became the top-selling car overall in one or two European countries once it reached there in mid-2013, while handily beating out the cheaper Chevy Volt earlier this year in the United States.

Its CEO, Elon Musk, has said that he envisions Tesla Motors as an independent automaker, aimed at eventually offering electric cars at prices affordable to the average consumer. Pricing for the Tesla Model 3 is expected to start at US$35,000 before any government incentives and deliveries are expected to begin by 2017.
