Musk is rolling out Tesla's new 'Full Self Driving' beta for a limited number of drivers
The customers in Tesla's Early Access Programme will receive software updates, which will give drivers access to Autopilot's 'partially' automated driver assistance system on city streets.
The Early Access program serves as a testing platform to help fix software bugs.

"Regarding the Full Self-Driving beta release, the Autopilot team, again, is just a really all-star team. I spent a lot of time with the Autopilot team. And there's a lot of really talented people in that team who have worked incredibly hard to make the -- to get the beta release out," Musk said during the company's Q3 earnings call on Wednesday.
Musk has been talking about 'Full Self Driving' a lot in the past couple of years, calling it an investment in the future that will become far more valuable once fully autonomous cars get regulatory approval.
Earlier, he explained that with feature-complete FSD, the car will be able to drive without human intervention but it would still be supervised.
