Tesla continues to refine Full Self-Driving (FSD), which will rely only on pure vision, without the use of a radar, which will be possible with the new version. FSD Beta V9.0 will be further polished for the next 1-3 weeks, after which it will be released. A wider release can be expected not earlier than in 1-2 months.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a series of tweets on May 12 that the company expects to release a significantly improved version of its FSD technology within the next 2-3 weeks. He explained that the company had to focus on the process of removing radars that were previously required for the function to work, as well as to confirm safety. Nevertheless, in a week, the version will be released in US production. After that, within 1-2 weeks, polished, pure vision FSD and V9 Beta will release. Musk stressed that the difference between V8 and V9 is gigantic.


This is great news and indicates significant progress for the company. However, owners continue to wonder when FSD Beta will become more widespread. According to an update from Musk, this could happen in 1-2 months. Nevertheless, such things are very difficult to predict accurately, he explained.

It should be kept in mind that Tesla is doing a great job trying to achieve what no one else has achieved. They developed their FSD system from scratch, over a long and involved process, and learning only from their own mistakes. Any seemingly almost finished product undergoes a thorough check, as a result of which some points may be found that need to be finalized. And, since there is still no experience on which to rely on this issue, it is impossible to indicate exact dates.
