Tesla on Monday suspended the deployment of its FSD Beta driver assistance software in the United States and Canada, for which customers have already paid $15,000. The company must resolve the malfunctions recently brought to light by a regulator.

In a notice published in mid-February, the American Highway Safety Agency (NHTSA) indeed estimated that defects in the software could cause vehicles to act in a potentially dangerous way at intersections. Tesla will therefore have to update the software on 362,758 cars that are equipped with it or planned to receive it.

Several surveys in the United States
“Until the software version containing the changes is available, we have halted the FSD Beta rollout,” Tesla said in a notice posted on its website. Since the end of 2020, the manufacturer has been gradually rolling out this test version of FSD (Full Self Driving). In January, Tesla estimated that it had been distributed to almost all customers who purchased FSD in the United States and Canada, or about 400,000 people.

Tesla’s driver assistance systems are in the sights of US authorities. The latter have already initiated various investigations into the real capabilities of the software as well as the words used by the company to praise their merits.
