Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta option is controversial, to say the least, and this latest video, which puts version 10.69.25 to the test in snowy Detroit, just adds fuel to the fire.
Published on the YouTube channel Detroit Tesla right on Christmas Eve, the video shows how Tesla’s $15,000 FSD Beta navigates a car on snow-covered city streets. And right off the bat, things are not looking great.
Just a few seconds after first engaging the system, the car is going too fast and slightly turning to the right, heading towards the curb and forcing the driver to take control of the steering wheel.
Toni Ezero, who sent us the video of him wrestling his Tesla on Detroit’s snowy roads, said that “I don’t think this drive is going to be a good one. I don’t think they’ve trained the neural nets at all for snow, still.”
Several times during the short, 15-minute drive, the self-driving system completely disengages, prompting the man behind the wheel to immediately take over control. It’s unclear why FSD Beta acted like this, with Toni speculating that it might be because of the uneven patches of snow and ice that covered the tarmac.
