Tesla FSD 12.4 Release Timeline Shared by Elon Musk

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has provided an update regarding the release of Full Self-Driving (FSD) version 12.4.2.

Musk announced on Tuesday evening that the latest iteration of FSD is set to begin internal testing imminently on Wednesday. This was in response to @WholeMarsBlog asking about the release of FSD 12.4.

“[FSD] 12.4.2 is much smoother. Challenge is keeping safety high, while increasing ride comfort. Build moves to internal testing tomorrow,” said Musk. He further emphasized the importance of safety, stating, “Yeah, we just need to confirm there are no safety regressions.”

This update suggests that after the internal testing phase, FSD 12.4.2 is expected to be made available to paid FSD testers, signaling a step closer to wider release.

Earlier this month, Musk said, “FSD 12.4.1 releases today to Tesla employees. If that goes well, then it will be released to a limited number of external customers this weekend.”

He added, “There are a massive number of changes to this build. It should arguably be called v13, but we’re sticking to 12 😂 Two other versions are in earlier stages of testing: 12.5 and 12.6, which could be called v14 and v15. We are starting to get to the point where, once known bugs are fixed, it will take over a year of driving to get even one intervention.”

So far, Cybertruck owners are still waiting to get access to Autosteer and FSD. Tesla recently said Cybertruck owners will get FSD with version 12.5 in June (there’s only four more days left in the month…).
