When will Tesla release its Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta in Canada? We now have an update from Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Canada has long been slated to be the first country outside the U.S. to get FSD beta, which offers Autosteer for city streets. But nothing has yet to materialize.
On Wednesday, Musk replied to a question about FSD beta’s release for Canada to say, “Not sure, but maybe a few months.”
“In general for any region, we need to make software work well, test it extensively & then get regulatory approval. If we could go faster while being safe, we would!”, emphasized Musk.

Back in November 2020, Musk told Canadians FSD beta would “hopefully” launch in December, but that did not happen.
In March of this year, Musk said Canada “should be very soon”, but noted there are many “subtle differences” between roads in the U.S. and Canada, so the release is “harder than it seems”.
Tesla is expected to release its FSD beta 10 to testers next Friday, said Musk earlier this week, with the release set to include big improvements and UI changes.
