Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta in Canada gets another delay from Elon Musk

Tesla CEO Elon Musk gave yet another update tonight on when Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta might arrive north of the border, and it wasn’t the news Canadians were hoping for.

After first revealing the next version of the self-driving software, version 9.0, was likely just two weeks away, Musk was asked by Vancouverite Toby Li when it would be available in Canada. Again citing differences in driving between Canada and the US, Musk said “probably a few months.”

Not to sound pessimistic, but “probably a few months” doesn’t instil confidence FSD beta will arrive in Canada any time soon. As far back as December 26, 2020 Musk said it was coming Canada “very soon,” only to repeat those same words again in March.

Using the new phrase tonight is very different than saying “very soon,” and sounds more like a vague timeline that Canadians shouldn’t hold their breath around.

If you are still counting, it has been 189 days since FSD beta was released in the US. At this rate we can only hope it arrives before the snow returns later in the fall.
