What kind of brakes does Tesla use?

What kind of brakes does Tesla use?

I was trying to look up information on the disk brakes. Are the calipers electric or hydraulic actuated? Is there an option to get carbon ceramic brakes?

No ceramic brake option.

Standard Brembo hydraulic brakes.

Except for the Autopilot capable cars, which use Brembo fully electric brakes instead of hydraulic.

Thank Red Sage, that's what I was getting at. I'm trying to understand how electric actuated calipers work since it seems that they will replace hydraulic systems for electric cars. I haven't found many articles online. If you know of any please share. Thanks
