Tesla full self-driving software gets $3,000 more expensive

From September 5, the Tesla full self-driving (FSD) software will cost $15,000, representing a whopping $3,000 increment. However, for purchases made before the date, the $12,000 price would still apply but the vehicles would be delivered later than the initial scheduled date.

If you are a Tesla owner or just an enthusiast, the financial journey of this software would likely tickle you. In 2019, when it started selling the feature as a different package from its Autopilot software, it cost $7,000 and was $2,000 cheaper if you bought it during your vehicle’s initial configuration.

Then, by 2021, it was already selling for $10,000 and in the beginning of 2022, the price was jacked up to $12,000. Even before this latest announcement, Tesla CEO Elon Musk had said that the software was too cheap at its $12,000 price tag.

Now, it appears that he is making his feelings known now. Although, the price hike does come with the upgraded version.

“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,” Musk had revealed in a tweet.

He added that those who already have the software can upgrade it to the new version in just two minutes via the car app. It is not yet clear if the price increase would affect the $199 monthly FSD subscription or not.
