CEO Elon Musk proudly announced the milestone on Twitter:
“Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta is now available to anyone in North America who requests it from the car screen, assuming you have bought this option. Congrats to Tesla Autopilot/AI team on achieving a major milestone!”
Remarkably, more than 100,000 Tesla owners have enrolled in the program during the past six months.
It is worth noting that the FSD is still regarded as a level-two driver-assist system because the onus of responsibility remains with the driver.
That said, Tesla vehicles can now travel autonomously to a location specified in the navigation system owing to FSD Beta. However, the driver must constantly be on guard and prepared to take over.
In hindsight, Tesla has regularly issued new software upgrades to the FSD Beta program to enhance performance. Remarkably, the automaker continuously seeks ways to make the FSD more effective than human drivers and attract more owners.
The FSD Beta v11 upgrade offers a broader release that combines the Autopilot for highway driving and Tesla FSD software stacks for city driving. This version’s availability is gradually expanded until it reaches all FSD owners.
