UPDATE: As of March 14, 2022, Drive Tesla Canada reports there have been no known Full Self-Driving beta downloads in Canada.
Toronto, Ontario — Elon Musk confirmed that 60 self-driving cars in Canada were being tested by Feb. 25, marking the first expansion of Tesla’s self-driving beta outside the United States. “Hoping to go wider this weekend,” Musk tweeted.
As a level two autonomous system, this AI is closer to your camera’s autofocus than an entire photographer. Its job is to make driving easier, but the driver must be ready to take control of the vehicle at any point in the journey.
Certain Canadian Tesla owners may see a prompt to request full self-driving beta after recent software update. Besides potentially adding a self-driving system, this enables the vehicle to gather data such as vehicle routes and safety practices.
In February, Tesla recalled over 58,000 vehicles in the United States when their self-driving AIs made rolling stops, endangering the driver and others on the road.
