New Tesla Model S/X Seen Using New Hardware 4.0 Cameras

Tesla is beginning to roll out a new suite of Hardware 4.0-equipped cars, with the new cameras spotted on some cars that have already been built.

The new hardware is the next iteration of Tesla’s Autopilot-powered self-driving hardware.

One Twitter user has already been able to take photos of some cars that have the new hardware installed. Twitter user The Killowatts took themselves down to the Fremont Tesla factory and was able to spy some of the new cars with the latest hardware installed.

The cars included Model S and Model X vehicles with the new hardware easy enough to spot. Th new cameras are noticeably different to the ones that were used on older vehicles with the angle of the cameras changing more than we might have expected.

Photos show the different cameras located all around the car, but the Twiter user was not able to spot new cameras in the headlights or the bumpers.

Electrek reports that Telsa was expected to increase the number of cameras from eight to 11 with the new designs.

Interestingly, the Twitter wanderer wasn’t able to find any Model 3 or Model Y vehicles with the new Hardware 4.0 cameras installed.

While it still isn’t clear to Tesla watchers exactly when Tesla intends to make the new hardware official and confirm that new vehicles will ship with it installed, Electrek does suggest that the March 1 Investor Day seems like a good bet for more information being made available.
