The full Tesla Self-Driving beta is now available to everyone in North America
Musk will introduce a full self-driving update in 2023 to prove he’s safer than the average driver.
Elon Musk said early Thursday that Tesla Inc’s fully self-driving pilot program is now available to everyone in North America, as the automaker awaits regulatory approval to drive its cars without human supervision.
“The Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta is now available to anyone in North America who requests it from the car’s screen, assuming you purchased that option,” Musk wrote in a tweet.
Tesla did not respond to a request for comment.
Musk said last month that Tesla’s advanced driver assistance program will not receive regulatory approval in 2022.
Musk hopes to introduce a fully self-driving (FSD) update in 2023 to show regulators that the technology is safer than the average human driver.
The Silicon Valley automaker is selling a $15,000 FSD plug-in that allows its cars to change lanes and park independently. This is complemented by the standard “autopilot” feature, which allows cars to steer, accelerate, and brake within their lanes without driver intervention.
Reuters reported in October that Tesla, which has come under fire for testing its incomplete technology on public roads, is also under investigation by the US Department of Justice over allegations that the company’s electric cars can drive themselves.
