In addition to the Summon feature, a video showcasing the updated 7.1 software shows the Model S going 65 MPH on a curvy highway while being guided by traffic-aware cruise control and changing lanes, with its driver only having to tap the turn signal.
The Autopilot feature, which is a “super high priority” for Elon Musk, also enables the Model S to scan for a parking space, display an alert when one is available and parallel park on command.
If that innovative display doesn’t inspire you to get cracking on the book, maybe this will.
