While on stage at the Cyber Rodeo event in April, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said all customers who have purchased the Full Self-Driving (FSD) Capability option in North America should receive FSD Beta before the end of 2022.
Like many of Musk’s previous timelines with FSD, fans didn’t put much weight behind the comments, but unlike many of his previous timelines, this one looks like it is coming true just two months later.
On Saturday Musk said FSD Beta was expanding to another 100,000 cars, the same number previously given as the total number of owners in the program.
Following through, just a few hours later we saw the software deployed to hundreds of owners with Safety Scores as low as 97.
Since then we have received numerous reports from owners in both Canada and the US receiving FSD Beta, and the requirement to receive the 2022.12.3.20 software update has now dropped as low as 91.
We have even heard from a Model S owner in Vancouver who opted out of the Safety Score program just over one month ago and still received the update on Monday.
Unfortunately this is little solace for those of you who have a high Safety Score and are still without the update.
Tesla has not described their methodology for who receives it and when, and from the outside looking in it appears to be completely random.
However with Musk’s comments combined with reports of low or even non-existent Safety Scores receiving the update, it looks like the chances of you getting it soon are good, it is just a matter of when.
