Remote-control Tesla

has become the first manufacturer in Australia to offer a car that can be parked remotely. Following regulatory approval, a software update to the Model S allows it to be parked via a smartphone app (authorities are not currently allowing remote parking via the keyfob). It can only be operated at low speeds for up to 10 metres. The new Summon feature is part of the Autopilot software, which is a $3800 upgrade on the Model S. BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz are also looking to add similar remote-parking technology.
