Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta: San Francisco to L.A. with Zero Interventions [VIDEO]
Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta has made its way from San Francisco to Los Angeles—without any interventions.
That’s according to the latest video shared today by Whole Mars Catalog, also known as Omar Qazi. The journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles is a 381 mile drive (613 km) and according to Qazi, he was able to complete the drive running FSD beta without any interventions.
“In a long-anticipated autonomy milestone, the latest build of Tesla’s Autopilot FSD Beta has driven from the streets of San Francisco all the way into Los Angeles with no human intervention. As far as we’re aware, this is the first known and recorded instance of Tesla’s Autopilot FSD beta driving from San Francisco all the way to Los Angeles without a single intervention,” explains Qazi.
The Model 3 owner says “the drive was not perfect”, but he had to share the impressive milestone. Qazi stopped at Superchargers in Firebaugh and Kettleman City to charge up along the drive, simulating what a family might do on this road trip. He says “it would also be great if someone with a 400 mile Model S could attempt to do an FSD drive between SF and LA with no charging stops.”

Qazi previously shared the same drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles back in November, with that drive requiring only five interventions.
Today is the last day of 2020 and Tesla owners taking deliveries today will get three free months of Full Self-Driving, says the company. The perk was a last-minute incentive aimed at helping Tesla achieve 500,000 deliveries in one year. We’ll find out in the coming days if that milestone was reached by Elon Musk and company.
