According to a generally well-informed source, Tesla delivers cars with the fully autonomous driving option installed as standard. An appreciable saving of time which could mean the imminent arrival of the stable version.
Even if France is not yet entitled to it, Tesla’s FSD (Full Driving System) is getting closer to the country. For those who have the option of fully autonomous driving15,000 dollars all the same without monthly subscription, you have to download and install a car update. In some cases this can take weeks. Users have noticed that on the latest models delivered, the FSD is automatically active as long as you ordered it.
The time saving is highly appreciable for buyers, especially since the observation is the same during a transfer of the option on another Tesla car. Beyond the convenience of the process, this above all means that the manufacturer has moved to deployment of a single version of its autonomous driving system. We can therefore assume that this inaugurates the imminent arrival of a stable version of FSD.
Tesla’s Fully Self-Driving Available Without Update on Newer Vehicles
Since its release in 2020, the option has always been labeled “beta”. Elon Musk, however, claimed that version 12 would be the end of the FSD testing period. It is this same version 12 that the billionaire unveiled during a rather special live. It is not expected until next year in theory and promises autonomous driving “fully automated, from video input to control output”. A global review of the functionalities should also be included.

The pre-installation of the FSD could therefore well be the step prior to the deployment of its stable version in the months to come. Let us remember, however, that Telsa is still targeted by American justice for accidents involving Autopilot. Depending on the verdict, it is possible that the electric car manufacturer will be forced to change plansboth by delaying the arrival of the update and by modifying it in depth.
I’ve just received word that Tesla is delivering cars with FSD installed out of the box.
