Tesla might release Version 9 of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta software in two weeks. Elon Musk promises that FSD V9.0 will “blow your mind.”
FSD beta’s V9 version will help Tesla’s vehicles maneuver city streets better. It seems like the next FSD beta update will roll out Tesla’s pure vision take on autonomous cars, which Elon Musk has been teasing for some time.
“There’s no question in my mind that with a pure vision solution, we can make a car that is dramatically safer than the average person. So — but it is a hard problem because we are actually solving something quite fundamental about artificial intelligence, where we basically have to solve real-world vision AI,” explained Elon Musk at the last TSLA earnings call.
Probably a few months. There are many subtle differences between US & Canada driving.

Tesla hopes FSD beta will become more widely available in the United States soon. Tesla’s FSD subscription service, which Elon Musk estimated would be available in May, may boost FSD beta’s wide release. Tesla also plans to launch the FSD download beta button by June at the latest.
