Tesla FSD Beta V9.0 ‘Almost Ready’, Will Have ‘Pure Vision, No Radar’ Says Elon Musk



Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Friday the company’s version 9.0 of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta is nearly complete.

Responding to a FSD beta video shared by @WholeMarsBlog, Musk responded to say, “almost ready with FSD Beta V9.0. Step change improvement is massive, especially for weird corner cases & bad weather.” He also added, “Pure vision, no radar.”

When asked, “Does this mean you can remove the radar from production, or will it still be included as a back up?”, Musk replied the company would remove radar from production, which would be a bold move for the company.

Now, many Tesla owners are still waiting for a software update that would bring the promised FSD beta download button, which is supposed to come in April. Usually, when Musk speaks, there’s usually a pretty relaxed timeline, so don’t get your expectations up.

Musk also noted The Boring Company will eventually use Autopilot in its Las Vegas Loop tunnels. Earlier today, we saw CNBC TV share a preview of the Vegas loop tunnels.
