I suggest that Tesla donate the ~400,000 HW2 and 2.5 cars it's taking out of it's fleet to the hobbyist community to advance AI development.
What 400,000 cars they are “taking out of its fleet”?
I suspect he was referring to the hardware they are replacing with HW3 upgrade
The number of people who have purchased FSD and will be getting the upgrade is nowhere near 400,000.
But donating the boards is a great idea - even if it's only 10,000 of them (probably a whole lot more than that).
I doubt 400k people bought FSD. Let alone EAP..
HW2 is more then fully capable of running EAP, so can be used for all Tesla ordering EAP without FSD.
So I dont see Tesla donating any HW2 boards when they are perfect for EAP in model 3.
(Tesla most likely will fit all $35k model 3 with refurbished HW2 while they are available)
