Tesla Autopark is getting a new name, and it’s very LOTR from Mashable


Sending your car to automatically park itself is boring.

Banishing your car to the parking realm until it’s summoned again — now that’s exciting!

On Sunday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced major improvements coming to Summon and Autopark. The first is the feature that summons your car from your garage or parking spot to your location, while the other is the one that automatically parks your vehicle; both are available as part of Tesla’s Enhanced Autopilot set of features which can be purchased as software upgrade for Tesla cars.

Musk, however, unveiled another change that’s apparently coming: Autopark will henceforth be called Banish.

“Major improvements coming for Summon & Banish (Autopark) next month,” he tweeted, without sharing any additional details.

The news delighted some of the commenters on Twitter/X. “Can we please scream ‘Be gone with you!’ as voice command to initiate Banish,” once person asked. “I can’t wait to ‘Banish’ my car to the desolate parking lot,” tweeted another.

Some commenters (rightfully) noticed that both Summon and Autopark don’t really work all that well in their current state, so upgrades would be very welcome.
