Tesla has added the in-car “Upgrades” tab to its UK and European cars, as detailed in a post on Reddit on Friday.
The post shows a screenshot depicting the tab, showing a premium connectivity subscription that can be purchased directly from inside the vehicle.
Another user in the thread confirmed that the update was available in Germany, though a different Tesla driver in France said the change had not hit the country as of yet. Others noted the in-car upgrade was seen in Demark and Portugal, too.
The tab, which is already available in the U.S., lets users purchase subscriptions directly using the infotainment system touchscreen inside the vehicle. The same upgrade option is available inside the Tesla mobile app.
“Premium Connectivity provides the ability to access all connectivity features over cellular, in addition to Wi-Fi, for the most intuitive and engaging ownership experience,” explains Tesla.
The feature offers 24/7 Navigation; Live Traffic Visualization; Sentry Mode – View Live Camera; Satellite-View Maps; Video Streaming; Caraoke; Music Streaming; and Internet Browser, for $9.99 USD per month, or $99 USD per year.

In California, where the automaker originated, Tesla dominated the state’s EV sales in the first quarter, landing the top three best-selling spots ahead of several other EVs.
