Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta 10 could roll out as early as next week

  Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta 10 could roll out as early as next week Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweets that Beta 10 of the company's driver-assistance software might only be a week away.The ambitiously named Tesla Full Self-Driving technology is not currently capable of actual full self-driving. Recently, at its AI Day event, Tesla demonstrated its progress towards full autonomy and gave us a peek behind the scenes at how it's working to speed up autonomous driving development. During the event, Musk was bullish that his tech would eventually be better than the average driver.

California-based EV startup Fisker will be showing the production version of its flagship model at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show. The fully electric Ocean compact crossover will launch in late 2022 with a starting price of $37,499 and is claimed to deliver an estimated 250 to 300 miles of driving range. In a recent discussion with co-founder and CEO Henrik Fisker and senior director of interior Nadya Arnaout, Fisker shed some light on the Ocean's interior design and customization options and what we can expect to see at the auto show unveiling.

With the 2022 Fisker Ocean electric SUV on track to begin production in November, two models are making their way to the L.A. Auto Show. At least one of the preview models will feature a colorful interior, and the EV carmaker insists that a bright white interior will not be the only option. "Cars have been suffering from a bit of boredom when it comes to colors. We all know that about 70 percent of cars are either white, black, or silver. It is the same with black and gray interiors," said Henrik Fisker. Besides big sellers such as white and black, Fisker will be offering a range of interior colors, including on the base model, as well as the highest trim.

Fisker says it has additional interior surprises, that, unfortunately, we are not getting a glimpse of until closer to the Ocean's official release in 2022. However, Fisker did disclose a few details, including an apparently groundbreaking technology used for forming the seats into unconventional shapes and laying out the seams in a way not seen before. The company also filed a patent for "interesting usability" in the infotainment screen that it claims no other automaker has built into cars yet. Among other noteworthy tidbits: the interior will be easier to clean than is typical, have plenty of storage space, and include a highly versatile center console.

Tesla Model S steering yoke is mandatory, says Musk .
The highly polarizing and kind of dumb steering setup on the recently redone Model S is all you get.Actually, you can't, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Friday, which was reported on by Electrek. That's right; there will be no option for a regular wheel, which we suspect is something that will turn off a lot of prospective customers. We also suspect that retrofitting one from an earlier S or X will be difficult, if not impossible.
