Tesla has started offering a monthly subscription to its Full Self Driving package for $ 199 per month (h / t Electrek). Tesla owners who purchased the discontinued Enhanced Autopilot package can receive an FSD subscription for $ 99 per month, according to Tesla support page. So far, the carmaker had sold the FSD package for a one-time fee of $ 10,000, but the monthly subscription allows users to test (literally) FSD features without a long-term commitment. Tesla owners can cancel their monthly FSD subscription at any time in accordance with the terms of the Tesla website.
Only Teslas with FSD Computer Hardware 3.0 (HW3) or later and either Basic or Enhanced Autopilot configurations can order FSD; other owners can purchase a hardware upgrade for $ 1,500 to make their vehicles FSD-ready.
Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had been promising an FSD subscription option for a few years now. Tesla eventually began broadcasting wireless software beta updates FSD version 9 earlier this month. As a reminder, the FSD software does not allow a Tesla vehicle to drive itself without driver information.
The owner shared the listing obtained from Tesla with CNBC, according to which the FSD interface included “features such as Navigate on autopilot, Automatic lane change, Automatic parking, Call and traffic lights, and Stop Sign Control”. The notice also stated that “the features currently in use require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle independent”.
