Tesla has been growing the number of Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta testers in the United States at a rapid rate.

The testing program first launched in October 2020 with the new software deployed to a select few owners, along with an unspecified number of employees.

It took nearly a full year before the automaker began expanding the program to any owner in the US who was able to achieve a perfect ‘100’ Safety Score.

The threshold has since been lowered to 98, and as a result the number of testers has exploded in recent months.

In the Q4 2021 and full year shareholder deck, Tesla says there are now almost 60,000 vehicles in the US with FSD Beta, a substantial increase from just a “couple thousand” in Q3.

“We successfully increased the number of FSD Beta vehicles from a couple of thousand in Q3 to nearly 60,000 vehicles in the US today.”

Even with such a high number of testers on the roads, Elon Musk says there has still been zero accidents or injuries caused by FSD Beta since its launch.

That number will hopefully soon include more than just owners in the US.

Elon Musk said on January 16 that FSD beta will be rolled out to Canada “cautiously” in 2 to 4 weeks.
