Musk says 160,000 Tesla customers are now running the FSD beta

Tesla has so far released 35 software updates of FSD which have generated regulatory scrutiny after several crashes were reported.

Elon Musk announced that 160,000 Tesla customers are now running the Full Self Driving (FSD) beta, from a mere 2,000 last year. At Tesla AI Day 2022 on September 30, Musk said the FSD technology would be ready for a global roll-out by December this year.

So far, Tesla has released 35 software updates of FSD, which have generated regulatory scrutiny after several crashes were reported. Musk acknowledged the regulatory and testing hurdles that need to be sorted before a global roll-out is planned.

Currently, FSD is available to around 160,000 drivers in Canada and the US. Recently, a Tesla owner sued the electric car maker, saying the company and its CEO Musk are misleadingly marketing the Autopilot and Full Self-Driving software.

The owner alleged that Tesla has been deceiving and misleading consumers regarding the current capabilities of its ADAS technology by portraying that it was constantly on the cusp of perfecting that technology to produce a fully self-driving car.

Tesla has come under heavy scrutiny over the controversial Autopilot advanced driver assistance system that has allegedly killed many, with US state and federal regulators turning up the heat on the company.

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), California, also accused Tesla of running fake claims about its Autopilot and FSD features last month.
