Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD), one of the electric carmaker’s most anticipated pieces of software, is currently available in beta as the company faced fire for releasing a half-baked version and was forced to roll it back. Tesla is currently working on version 11.4 of the software, which should be released soon. Tesla CEO Elon Musk noted that it now has a wide range of major improvements.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk also claimed that referring to FSD 11.4 as FSD version 12 is incorrect. The billionaire further claimed that Tesla FSD version 12 will appear as an end-to-end artificial intelligence (AI) when it is released. Moreover, it is said to have many improvements compared to the currently available software.

When the automaker first started allowing owners to test its FSD test kits on public roads, the company began releasing new software updates every two weeks. However, they were often late and eventually stopped coming on a regular basis. The 11th edition of the FSD was hailed as a major turning point, but it was delayed by several months. The car company finally rolled it out recently, and it’s been updated a few times since. Now, Tesla CEO revealed that the FSD beta 12 version is in preparation.
Musk also recently claimed that FSD version 11.4 has major improvements. However, he did not reveal what further improvements will come in the next version. Interestingly, however, the Tesla CEO has previously stated that the car company doesn’t need AI for decision-making, just detection and identification. What gets confusing here is Musk’s latest statement that Version 12 will come as an end-to-end AI, which contradicts his most recent statement.
Speaking of Tesla FSD, it is an advanced form of existing self-driving technology. Tesla Autopilot is a semi-autonomous driver assistance technology. The automaker claims that FSD will step up the game even further and will be fully autonomous driving technology without any human intervention.
