Tesla Website Hints Full Self-Driving May Soon Cost $14,000 USD
According to source code on Tesla’s website under accounts, the company is set to increase the price of Full Self-Driving add-on for Autopilot to $14,000 USD in the United States, as noted by u/Sudsington on Reddit.
The user also noted Enhanced Autopilot is also coming back, as indicated on the site’s source code, priced at $4,000 USD.
Automatic Emergency Braking wording is also set to change, likely due to the upcoming introduction of Tesla Vision, the company’s camera-based Autopilot, that no longer will require radar. Earlier today, Tesla detailed the transition to Tesla Visions for Model 3 and Model Y deliveries, starting in May 2021.
The new wording for AEB says, “Enhanced Autopilot includes additional driver assistance features. Every driver is responsible for remaining alert and active when using Autopilot, and must be prepared to take action at any time.”
Enhanced Autopilot includes Navigate on Autopilot, Auto Lane Change, Autopark, and Summon.
To get other advanced Autopilot features such as Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control and Autosteer on city streets (FSD beta), that requires the purchase of Full Self-Driving, which costs $10,000 USD. In total, that makes up the $14,000 USD price for the complete Autopilot FSD package.
Back in October 2020, Tesla increased the price of FSD in the U.S. to $10,000 USD, a $2,000 USD increase. Originally the price hike was slated for all markets where FSD is available for purchase, but the increase remained limited to the U.S. only, as that’s where FSD beta currently is available.
Earlier this month, Elon Musk said FSD subscriptions would be coming in “about a month”, while also noted the expansion of the FSD beta program was imminent as well.
Again, it’s unclear if this change will actually make it onto Tesla’s website, but it appears plans are being made ahead of the company’s Model S Plaid delivery event set for June 3.
