Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk indicated via a tweet on Saturday that the automaker was rolling out a software update to an initial 1,000 of its newest customers to bring their cars in line with other Autopilot-equipped vehicles.

In October, Musk announced that Tesla models would be shipping with new “Hardware 2” to support additional self-driving capabilities but that certain features would not be activated that were already available on first generation vehicles.

With the software update in place, owners of Tesla vehicles with the latest hardware will now be able to take advantage of standard safety features including emergency braking, collision avoidance and adaptive cruise control.

Tesla has opted out of attending CES and the North American International Auto Show this January in favor of hosting an event for investors on January 4 at its Gigafactory 1 manufacturing complex in Storey County, Nevada.
