Tesla Increases Price of Full Self-Driving to $15,000 USD
As promised, Tesla has increased the price of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) capability to $15,000 USD.
Two weeks ago, CEO Elon Musk said FSD would be increasing in price to $15,000 USD on September 5, “after wide release of FSD beta 10.69.2”. Now, we don’t have FSD beta 10.69.2 just yet, as testers have access to FSD beta 10.69.1.1.
As it stands, FSD now costs $15,000 USD—increasing by $3,000—and Enhanced Autopilot remains at $6,000 USD.
In Canada, Enhanced Autopilot now costs $7,800 CAD (was $6,400 CAD) and FSD costs a whopping $19,500 CAD. FSD now costs 31% of an entry Model 3 with 18-inch Aero Wheels, if you got the deep pockets for it.
For those purchasing FSD, you get added features such as Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control, while Autosteer on city streets is in beta and will have to be earned with a higher Safety Score. Other included features from Basic Autopilot and Enhanced Autopilot include Navigate on Autopilot, Auto Lane Change, Autopark, Summon and Smart Summon.
After wide release of FSD Beta 10.69.2, price of FSD will rise to $15k in North America on September 5th.
Current price will be honored for orders made before Sept 5th, but delivered later.

In the United States, Tesla has a monthly subscription available for FSD at $199/month still. The company’s high price of FSD now in Canada will likely funnel customers to a subscription model if and when it debuts in the nation.
For now, FSD is not perfect but continues to improve. Is it worth $15,000 USD today?
