You are right though about how little we have to worry about the coming wave (or is it vapor-wave) of robot cars in the next four years.

Perhaps the trick is just to rename the existing driver assist features as "autopilot" or FSD/Full Self Driving (capable) as Elon Musk has done, get the fan-boys to pony up $6,000 or so for the privilege of owning cars with such "technology", and call it a day with a banner proclaiming Mission Accomplished!
No, Tesla is feeding all those millions of miles of auto-pilot data into its learning system. It's quite clear the mission isn't accomplished.
