1st post, thanks for having me. I have been reading a ton on this forum over the last few weeks trying to learn about the Cybertruck, Tesla, and EVs in general.

I do have a question on the ability of the CT to go into/out of the garage automatically.

I have a standard 2 car garage and would really like to be able to park inside of the garage. We have a 2nd garage for our stuff, so this 2 car garage is for each of our cars and that is it. Therefore, I can use the full 20' of the garage and have a few inches to spare from each bumper to the wall/garage door.

Given that I will have a very small margin for error, I would love it if the CT could automatically pull into and out of the garage. Is it capable of this? If it is, do I have to be in the CT for it to do this, or can I enter/exit the CT from the comfort of my driveway and let it park itself snugly and accurately into the garage?

As the specs of the production version fo the CT has not yet been released, I think your question is a bit premature. However as the S, 3, X, Y vehicles all have summon and autopark capabilities, I would expect the CT to have similar software features.

In my opinion, there is too much unknown about the production design of the CT to really have any definite idea of exactly what it will be capable of. Hopefully the full final specs and detailed images will be released soon.

It makes sense that it would have that feature (called Summon Autopark) if you buy FSD. Here is a short video that shows how it works on Model 3
You have to make sure that you are watching it closely and are ready to tap the stop button on the app or push one of the door handles to make it stop if it gets too close to something. Keep in mind that it's not perfect.

Great question and great video. I was also wondering about this. I have a small detached garage behind my house that is accessed by an alley. I measured the garage and the CT will fit, but just barely. Was kinda hoping I could get out of the car and have it pull itself in. I also typically back into the garage. Not sure if I’ll do that with the CT because I’ll still have to go into the garage to plug the CT in. This is where an automatic charging connector (I think I’ve heard others refer to it as a snake?) would be awesome. Or if the wireless charging thing becomes a thing, but I’m not a fan of that, at least from what I’ve heard about it so far.

Currently there are two types of autoparking; one where it pulls straight in and out, and 'smart' summon, which can turn the wheel. Both still need you to watch it like a hawk, but they have gotten better over time.

Even without the auto-parking it would be very useful to stop a CT in a few inches before a wall without a chance to crush into a bedroom behind this wall. I just imagine a sensor (mechanical/optical) that detects the approaching CT and switches on the red light in front of a CT. Would the auto-pilot stop fast on red light?

FSD is still locked. If you bought FSD, you should have all the autopilot features.

Did you follow the instructions?

Instructions? LOL I watched the video, and followed that, but read? I'm lucky to read these forums and comprehend :)

It’s coming soon! If my vacuum can find it’s “parking spot” every day, perfectly, Tesla can absolutely add it easily. Gotta wait for it though, under promise, over deliver.

You're sounding like my spouse there. She leaves me all the manuals. Even made me look up a shop manual for her Ducati!

With your instructions, I was able to get it working. I don't believe he mentioned in the video that you needed to go and customize summon and turn off the continuous press.

If the Tesla had a docking station similar to the Roomba, it would be pretty sweet. Park itself on the spot, initiate charging all in one go.

I'd imagine this would be extremely easy to do with wireless charging pads. Idk if that's still something they plan to do anytime soon.

Given the length of the CT this autopark feature will probably be a must for a lot of people... I just don't look forward to waiting for it to drive at .0001/mph during the winter months in CO, I'll probably buy a smart garage door closer so I can just walk inside and let it all do it's thing without having to wait 5 minutes for the damn thing to park.
