Tesla  (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report CEO Elon Musk admits that the company’s beta self-driving software is ‘not great.’

On Monday, Musk tweeted saying that Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta 9.2 is "not great [in my opinion]." Tesla's team is working to improve it, he added.

ThenFull Self-Driving beta is only available to some Tesla customers. The FSD system is sold as a package for $10,000 or $199 a month in the U.S. 

"We are trying to have a single stack for both highway and city streets, but it requires massive NN retraining," Musk said, in a tweet.

The tweet comes after National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) placed Tesla’s Autopilot system--which is the basic version of FSD and is a standard part of a Tesla--under investigation.

The involved subject vehicles were all confirmed to have been engaged in either Autopilot or Traffic-Aware Cruise Control during the approach to the crashes," the NHTSA said in a statement.
