I can drive you myself, car, but hey, can you park yourself, please? It's too much effort for me.

The future of driving looks largely autonomous, involving little to no human intervention. But if parking is something you have struggled with – and who hasn't? – Tesla's updated version of the Model S now comes with a "summon" feature that saves you from dealing with packed parking spaces.

The model unveiled in 2014 talked a lot about this feature then. In the recently updated v7.1, the option is finally available.

Tesla owner James Majerus posted the video above demonstrating the car's latest ability.

True, the car moves at an agonising pace. But since it can now even open your garage door you are saved that trouble as well. The Model S, via a HomeLink connection, can autonomously open the obstructing door on its own, park itself, and the close the garage door behind itself. And can reportedly even park in reverse.

Watch it auto open the car door and park itself.


Tesla cars are currently not available in India. In 2014 the company had announced its plans to enter the Indian market, but there has been no known development since. The high price and India's import duties are the biggest obstacles.

"We have identified India is one of the potential markets in Asia to have a local assembly plant, but we need a definite policy from the government to support electric vehicles in the future," Tesla's Chief Information Officer Jay Vijayan was quoted as saying in a 2014 report in The Economic Times.
