Tesla CEO Elon Musk has made an “unannounced and surprising” visit to Beijing, according to a media report on Sunday.

Musk’s visit has raised hopes for bringing Tesla’s autopilot and supervised full self-driving (FSD) technology to China, known to be the electric vehicle maker’s second-biggest market, the South China Morning Post reported.

This comes as China looks to increase the adoption of advanced driver-assistance systems and higher levels of autonomous driving functions in mass-produced cars.

Musk had in a recent post on X.com noted that Tesla will make FSD available to customers in China “very soon”.

Tesla rolled out FSD, the most autonomous version of its Autopilot software, four years ago but the technology is yet to be available in China.

Musk’s latest visit also coincides with the ongoing 2024 Beijing Auto Show, the report said.
