What HappenedThe billionaire entrepreneur said FSD Beta 10.12.2 is expanding to 100,000 cars and that the 10.13 version will begin to handle roads with “no map data at all.”
The 10.13 version will also be able to smooth out intersection control, especially long lefts, Musk wrote in a tweet.
Why It MattersTesla has been significantly ramping up its beta program offering to customers. The EV maker had in April said it had rolled out its full self-driving beta software program to over 100,000 customers in the United States.
The Musk-led company first started testing out the FSD beta in late 2020 among a select group of customers known as beta testers.
Musk recently said he believes Tesla is likely to actualize the FSD Level-4 system capabilities next year, pushing back the timeline yet again.
A Level-4 system implies the vehicle can handle all aspects of driving without human intervention. Tesla is currently at Level 2.
