Tesla Could Bring Its Full Self-Driving Beta To China Soon

Tesla is reportedly starting to get ready to launch its Full Self-Driving Beta in China for the first time. The feature costs $15,000 in the United States and has been available in beta form for some time.

While launching the Full Self-Driving Beta internationally has been slow going for Tesla, but local reports now suggest that Tesla is hiring a team in China that will be used to manage the rollout of the FSD Beta in the country.

The US electric vehicle (EV) maker is planning to form a local operations team of around 20 people initially to bring FSD into the Chinese market, local media outlet 36kr said in a report today.

Electrek notes that Tesla is also hiring a new team of people that will act as data labelers in China. They’ll help train Tesla’s neural nets on Chinese roads and other parts of the infrastructure including road signs and labels. A Cnevpost report claims that Tesla is working to hire “hundreds” of new people.

However, regulatory approval could still prove to be a problem for Tesla, and even if these moves are about bringing FSD to China, it could take some time to happen.

Plenty still needs to be done, but at least this is a sign that progress is being made even if it could take a long time to bear fruit for Tesla drivers in China.
