San Francisco, October 1: Elon Musk says 160,000 Tesla customers are now running the fully self-driving (FSD) beta, up from just 2,000 last year.
Tesla has so far released 35 software updates for the FSD, which is under regulatory scrutiny after multiple reported crashes.
At Tesla AI Day 2022, Musk said the FSD technology will be ready for global deployment by the end of this year. Elon Musk takes issue with Tesla customers over criticism of the company’s FSD beta software.
However, he acknowledged regulatory and testing hurdles that need to be sorted out before a global rollout is planned, reports The Verge. Elon Musk says Tesla is not recalling 1.1 million EVs, releases software update
FSD is currently available to approximately 160,000 drivers in the US and Canada.
Last month, Tesla’s owners sued the electric car maker, saying the company and its CEO Musk were “deceptively and misleadingly” promoting Autopilot and its “fully self-driving” software.
In the lawsuit, the owners allege that Tesla is deceiving and misleading consumers regarding the current capabilities of its ADAS technology, and that it is using the technology to ultimately deliver on its promise to produce fully self-driving cars. I stated that I am always trying to complete it.
Tesla has come under intense scrutiny over its controversial advanced driver assistance system Autopilot, which has claimed the lives of many, and US federal and state regulators have warned the electric car maker to I’m heating up.
In August, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) accused Musk’s Tesla of making false claims about its Autopilot and FSD features.
