Tesla's new FSD beta comes with three driving modes

©elenaxx1v/01RF.COM Indeed, three driving modes have been found in the new Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta, which are Chill, Average and Assertive. Each mode offers driving that varies according to the road and in addition, they impact the reactions of the car. Initially, this feature was included in the version update 03.3 of October 450, but, two days after the beginning of its test, it was withdrawn following a problem with a left turn at traffic lights.

Right after that, Tesla released version 30.30.1 also including FSD driving mode. This new version defines the FSD profile as being a means of controlling the behavior of the car, namely, ” soft stops, change of speed lanes, distances safety and traffic at the yellow light”.


Tesla shows a presentation on the scope of Full Self-Driving (FSD)

Someone posted on Twitter images showing the detailed preview of the FSD option. In the description, Tesla states that with “Assertive” mode, the vehicle maintains a reduced following distance and will change gears more frequently. It will also not leave the overtaking lanes and it will only stop in the presence of stop signs.

For “Chill” mode, YouTube videos show that the car has a greater following distance, with less creep and less shifting. However, for “Average” mode, it provides the vehicle with an average following distance and “can perform rolling stops,” according to Tesla. This last information is currently rather vague. According to The Verge, “it’s not entirely clear if this means cars won’t come to a full stop at stop signs”.

Which of these three FSD modes seem best suited for safer driving?

Although the objective of the FSD function is all about pushing the boundaries of security, it’s hard to tell the difference between these 03 modes because testing was not conducted in severe weather conditions or heavy traffic.

But based on the description of these videos, the ”Assertive” mode seems more aggressive than the others, because it can follow cars more closely, make a rolling stop and change gears more frequently, which is considered co dangerous behavior for a driving function. However, the beta version of the FSD functionality does not make the car fully autonomous, but the full functional version allows users to drive to work without human intervention.
