Tesla noob here.
I was looking to jump into the E-Bandwagon. Having owned a lowly C-Max before, can definitely see the benefits of an electric car.
I was looking at some of the pre-owned ones on Tesla's website (Ex: 2016 Model S 90D) that says Autopilot hardware (i assume v1.0)
When i spoke to the advisors, they indicated that v1.0 has only 4 cameras (vs v.2.0 that is supposed to have 8 cameras) and hence Enhance Autopilot and in the future full-self driving cannot be enabled on those vehicles.
Looking at a similarly equipped mileage 2017 model S, the price jumps up by atleast 25k.
I understand that it is a model year newer and perhaps the price you pay for Autopilot v2.0, but that difference is ridiculous.
I wanted to confirm that older models (like the one i was looking at that has the 1.0 hardware) cannot be upgraded (both software/hardware) to the Enhanced Autopilot option.
