Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Price Increase to $12,000 Goes Live
As promised, Tesla has increased the price of its Full Self-Driving to $12,000 USD in the United States, seeing a $2,000 USD jump.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the change was coming over a week ago, noting the change would take place on January 17. As of today, the Tesla website’s configurator page is showing $12,000 USD.
Full Self-Driving includes the following added features for Autopilot:
- Navigate on Autopilot (on-ramp to off-ramp)
- Auto Lane Change
- Full Self-Driving Computer
- Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control
- Coming soon (beta users only): Autosteer on city streets
As for FSD subscriptions, they remain at $199 USD per month and won’t increase in price until a wide release, said Musk.
The next version of FSD, according to Musk, will bring significant changes. “Beta 11 with single city/highway software stack & many other architectural upgrades probably next month,” said the Tesla CEO earlier this month.
Full Self-Driving beta is currently in version 10.9 and available to a limited number of testers. You can click here to watch some first drives in FSD beta 10.9.
Some early FSD adopters are still waiting to try the beta version, which is based on a user’s Safety Score, to ensure only safe drivers test the system.
Back in October 2020, Tesla increased the price of FSD to $10,000 USD, a $2,000 increase. Elon Musk has reiterated the price of FSD will continue to increase as the capability improves over time.
