Report: Tesla to introduce new Autopilot hardware and pedestrian alert to the Model S [Update: unlikely]

Model S facelift bjorn 6

Update: adding to the skepticism in our article, a source familiar with the matter refutes Cleantechnica’s report.

Last week, we received a tip that Tesla is about to introduce a new trifocal Autopilot camera and a system to emit a noise to alert pedestrians for the updated Model S released just last month. We were not able to confirm it and therefore left it on the back-burner.

Now Cleantechnica is running it as an “exclusive” and a done deal though without specifying how they confirmed it (or even if). It looks like they received the exact same tip since they are not adding any new information. So I would take all this with a grain of salt.
