Tesla Full Self-Driving (FSD) users achieve 1.3 billion combined miles traveled

Tesla Full Self-Driving (FSD) users have accumulated 1.3 billion miles, a figure expected to rise sharply as more drivers test and potentially subscribe to FSD. This was suggested in Tesla’s Q1 2024 Update Letter and during the first-quarter earnings call. Tesla pointed out in its Q1 2024 Update Letter that the vision-based approach, using cameras and AI, is increasingly proving to be the right path to autonomy.

This was particularly apparent after the launch of FSD (Supervised) V12, which helped push Tesla’s cumulative FSD miles to over 1 billion. With the introduction of a free trial for the service, Elon Musk stated during the Q1 2024 earnings call that FSD’s cumulative miles have been growing rapidly, especially with the rollout of Supervised FSD V12. Musk highlighted, “(FSD’s) been pushed out to, I think, around 1.8 million vehicles, and we’re seeing about half of people use it so far and that percentage is increasing with each passing week.

So, we now have over 300 million miles that have been driven with FSD V12 since the launch of Supervised Full Self-Driving.” It’s clear that the vision-based approach with end-to-end neural networks is the right solution for scalable autonomy, Musk said. On average, Tesla owners are now driving 14.7 million miles on FSD per day, a ~250% increase from 3 months ago. Observers noted that while it took Tesla 3.5 years to achieve its first 1 billion miles driven on FSD, it took just a few months to add another 300 million miles.

It is anticipated that FSD will reach 2 billion cumulative miles in the near future.
