Tesla FSD Beta Europe Update: Version for Regulators to Review is ‘Close’



When will Tesla release Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta in Europe? The move has taken a while because of stricter rules in the European Union when it comes to autonomous driving.

According to an update from CEO Elon Musk on Saturday, when asked when FSD beta would arrive in Europe, he replied, “we are close to the point where offering something for EU regulators to review makes sense.”

Yesterday, Tesla released FSD beta 10.12.2 to 100,000 cars said Musk. It’s unclear if these are new owners or a total number of beta testers at the moment.

Back in March, Musk said, “FSD Beta should be available in Europe for [left hand drive] this summer, [right hand drive] a few months later. These dates depend on regulatory approval.”

It remains unclear if this timeline still stands, but for eager Tesla owners in Europe waiting to test FSD, the final decision will come down to EU regulators. There are many different languages, traffic rules and road designs Tesla will need to account for with FSD in Europe, so it’s more complex than just launching in the U.S or Canada for that matter.

Recently, Tesla had remove automatic freeway entry and exits with Navigate on Autopilot, to comply with United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) regulations.
