More Tesla drivers in a few weeks
The first variant of the self-driving cars released by Tesla may be more common as early as mid-December.
Tesla customers will be attracted to cars they drive themselves. The image is from an exhibition at the Beijing Motor Show in September.
FSD’s beta software (“full self-driving”) has so far only been sent to a small number of selected customers in the US. It means that the car’s computer must be able to drive, that the driver doesn’t have to lift a finger.
However, for legal reasons, the person sitting in the driver’s seat must have full control at all times and must be willing to take responsibility.
But Musk is trying to attract buyers so that in the future, cars can act as “robot taxis” when their owners don’t need them, and thus become a profit deal for Tesla’s customers.
He said Canada and Norway will be the first countries outside the United States to offer FSD, but did not specify a time for that.
