Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Sunday the cost of the existing version of what the business calls its full self-driving (FSD) feature will be increasing from $12,000 to $15,000 starting Sept. 5.
That price occurs the surface of the current cost for Teslas, starting from a Model 3 at the reduced end, starting at about $47,000 to a Model X at the top quality, starting at roughly $121,000.
Musk revealed the purchase price change in a tweet:
The existing subscription price of full self-driving capability ranges from $99 to $199 per month, based on what version of Tesla’s Autopilot technology the automobile has, based on the company’s website. It had been not immediately clear if that price can be changing.
The electric transportation website Electrek noted that the most recent version of Tesla’s full self-driving capability includes improvements to left turns, enhanced animal and pedestrian detection, and smoother stops.
The technology will not allow Tesla vehicles to operate a vehicle themselves without human participation. It needs that drivers focus on the street, keep their practical thesteering wheelat all times, and remain alert to the navigation route.
“The currently enabled features require active driver supervision and don’t make the automobile autonomous,” Tesla said on its website.
