Tesla’s Full Self-Driving beta rolled out Tuesday night, according to a tweet form Chief Executive Elon Musk.
The new software is a substantial re-write of the automakers self-driving technology. Musk has been testing the update, calling the improvements “profound.”
“I think we’ll hopefully release a private beta of Autopilot, of the full self-driving version of Autopilot in, I think, a month or so, and then people will really understand just the magnitude of the change,” Musk said at Tesla’s recent Battery Day event. “It’s profound…you’ll see it. It’s just like a hell of a step change.”
Musk teased the Oct. 20 rollout earlier in the month, saying FSD would be released to a limited number of people identified as “expert and careful drivers.”
He reiterated that caution Tuesday, highlighting that the FSD beta is being released in an “extremely slow and cautious” manner.
FSD has been a long wait for many who purchased the pricey option. Tesla hoped to release a feature-complete version of FSD update by the end of last year, but didn’t achieve that goal. It seems the company is finally taking that next step toward the fully autonomous car it promised.
