Tesla FSD Beta Releasing for ’99’ Safety Scores in Canada Tonight
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Monday evening the Canadian release of Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta continues, with more downloads hitting those owners with Safety Scores of 99 out, tonight.
Earlier today, FSD beta downloads expanded in Canada for those with perfect 100 Safety Scores. But tonight, Musk says FSD beta will expand to more owners with 99 Safety Scores.
Going out tonight for 99 scores

Tesla’s Safety Score is calculated by factoring in: Forward Collision Warnings per 1,000 Miles; Hard Braking; Aggressive Turning; Unsafe Following; and Forced Autopilot Disengagement.
For now, FSD beta is geo-restricted from working in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, because according to Musk, the system doesn’t handle street cars effectively yet.
Congratulations to all new Canadian FSD Beta testers!
Please be extra careful and ready for your car to do crazy things. Practice makes perfect. Start experimenting with me in a time and play with low traffic. Come back here to Twitter if you have any questions. #FSDBeta 🇨🇦

For now, Canada is the only nation outside of the U.S. to have FSD beta officially; the add-on to Autopilot costs $10,600 CAD, but will likely increase in price as it did in the U.S., when the latter gained FSD beta. FSD beta subscriptions in Canada are also likely at some point, to mirror the USA.
Did you get FSD beta in Canada? How are you liking it so far?
