Tesla has published how many miles have been driven by people using Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta, revealing for the first time in their Q2 2022 financial report they have now hit 35 million cumulative miles (58M km) as of June 2022.
This is a huge overall numbers and points towards a massive user base using FSD Beta, which Tesla says is now over 100,000 in the United States and Canada.
Tesla also provided historical figures showing that between October 2020, when the first FSD Beta trials launched, and November 2021, the numbers for cumulative miles were under 5 million.
This means that the number of miles has gone from 5 million to over 35 million in six months with the expansion of FSD Beta to Canada and to more users in the US.
In comparison, these numbers are extremely high for the autonomous driving space.
Waymo, for instance, clocked 2.3 million miles driven by their vehicles last year. While Cruise, who drove the second most miles in 2021, clocked under a million.
With more miles driven, these vehicles and software can better develop their autonomous abilities; evidently, Tesla is miles ahead of the rest.
As of April 2022, there were over 100,000 drivers taking part in the FSD beta, and this number continues to grow.
This means that 35 million is only going to be a starting point, and if the current trend continues, we could see Tesla break 100 million cumulative miles within the year’s end.
