Tesla is increasing the cost of its Full Self-Driving software to $15,000

For the next time this season, Tesla is increasing the cost of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) feature. On Saturday, Elon Musk tweeted that the upfront cost of the driver assistance software would increase to $15,000 on September 5th. The automaker will honor the existing $12,000 price on orders created before that date but will deliver those vehicles at a later time. “Note, it is possible to upgrade your existing car to FSD in 2 mins via the Tesla app,” Musk added. He didn’t say if Tesla would raise the price of its FSD subscription plans. With respect to the current Autopilot capabilities of one’s Tesla, adding the program currently costs just as much as $199 monthly.

Tesla has consistently increased the cost of its Full Self-Driving feature through the years. Once the company first began offering FSD as a separate option from Autopilot, it cost consumers $5,000 to include the program during configuration and $7,000 post-delivery. In the beginning of the year, the cost of FSD went from from $10,000 to $12,000. Elon Musk telegraphed Tesla would raise the price of FSD just as before back July when he said the program was “ridiculously cheap” at $12,000 and a price hike means the difference between Tesla “being worth a whole lot money or worth basically zero.”

After wide release of FSD Beta 10.69.2, price of FSD will rise to $15k in THE UNITED STATES on September 5th.

Current price will undoubtedly be honored for orders created before Sept 5th, but delivered later.
