Tesla Plans To Have Its Full Self-Driving Beta Ready For Public In Four Weeks
Tesla now says that it intends to have its Full Self-Driving Beta ready for the public to try in around four weeks. At least, that’s what CEO Elon Musk is saying. There’s no way of telling what the people actually working on the update have to say about that.
According to an Electrek report, Musk says that Beta 10 will be the one that brings the FSD Beta to the masses and that it will be available in around four weeks.
“We should be there with Beta 10, which goes out a week from Friday (no point release this week). It will have a completely retrained NN, so will need another few weeks after that for tuning & bug fixes. Best guess is a public beta button in ~4 weeks.”
The beta will be available to download for people who have already bought the FSD package, with Tesla leaving it to the customer to decide whether they want to install the beta release or not.
Given Tesla’s history with delayed launches, it’s possible the beta could be the only version of the FSD system available for some time.
In fact, Tesla’s recent history would also suggest that the 4-week timeframe could actually be considerably longer, too. All eyes will be on Tesla, and Musk’s Twitter account, to see what happens in 4 weeks.
