October 2016

Tesla releases new Autopilot 2.0 hardware suite for Model S and Model X. 8 cameras, 12 new ultrasonic sensors and radar provide 360 degree coverage around the vehicle with almost twice the sensor range and resolution of the prior version.
This new hardware will be utilized by two optional software enabling packages. Both can be purchased after delivery.
The first package is called Enhanced Autopilot. It is an improvement over the first Tesla Autopilot.
Full Self-Driving Capability — is a second optional software package. It is designed to be able to conduct short and long distance trips with no action required by the person in the driver’s seat.

Vehicles with 1.0 hardware will no longer receive autopilot updates.


August 2017

Tesla releases new powerful Autopilot 2.5 hardware suite for Model S, Model X and Model 3.
This is the minimum hardware version to get the built-in dashcam and a fully functional Sentry Mode.
Vehicles with 2.0 hardware will no longer receive autopilot updates.


To sum it up, all Model X vehicles can be equipped with Driver Assistance Features. But if you want Full Self-Driving Capability you should consider only vehicles with the Autopilot 2.5 hardware (produced after August 2017).
