Tesla’s FSD Free Trial: Tesla’s Starting to Roll Out to Tesla Owners in the U.S

Tesla FSD

In a move that’s bound to send ripples through the automotive industry, Tesla is rolling out a free trial of its much-hyped Full Self-Driving (FSD) to over 1.7 million Tesla owners in North America.

Tesla’s FSD V12 is a suite of advanced driver-assistance features that promise to take the hassle out of driving, or at least make it a whole lot more convenient, Free trial users are getting FSD Beta version 12.3.2.1.

V12 represented the first version of FSD to utilize neural networks in an “end-to-end” approach. Instead of hand-coding instructions based on visual data, the neural nets can now ingest raw camera footage and vehicle telemetry to directly output driving actions. With this free trial, Tesla is essentially dangling a juicy carrot in front of potential buyers, giving them a taste of what the future of driving could look like.

Tesla isn’t calling it “FSD” or “FSD Beta” during this free trial period. Nope, they’re cleverly branding it as “Full Self-Driving (Supervised),” which is a nod to the fact that drivers still need to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Clever move, Tesla.

But let’s not get too caught up in the semantics. The real question on everyone’s mind is, “What’s the appeal factor here?” Well, dear reader, for many Tesla buyers, the allure of cutting-edge tech is a major selling point. And what could be more cutting-edge than a car that can practically drive itself (with supervision, of course)?

So, if you’re one of the lucky 1.7 million Tesla owners in North America who’ll get to experience this free FSD trial, buckle up and enjoy the ride. And who knows? Maybe you’ll be so impressed that you’ll decide to take the plunge and make FSD a permanent part of your driving experience.

After all, as Elon Musk himself mentioned, this free trial is rolling out to all capable Teslas in the U.S., not just new orders. So, whether you’re a long-time Tesla owner or a fresh-faced newcomer to the world of electric vehicles, this free FSD trial is your chance to experience the future of driving firsthand.

Just don’t forget to keep those hands on the wheel, okay? We wouldn’t want any unsupervised shenanigans on the road, now, would we?
