For owners of Tesla's Enhanced Autopilot package, the price of the Full Self-Driving (FSD) upgrade has been reduced by $1,000. FSD offers owners a plethora of driver-assist features, including the promise of level-five autonomous driving, which the firm hopes to integrate with forthcoming software updates.
Recently, Tesla began rolling out its FSD package in a beta release to a limited group of owners. Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, has remarked that the price of the package would be increased as Tesla adds more capabilities to it. The price increased by $1,000 to $8,000 in July, and after the beta release began, FSD's price skyrocketed to $10,000.
Many of the features in the FSD package were previously offered under the "Enhanced Autopilot package." The price to upgrade from the Enhanced Autopilot package has kept changing in the past. In an overnight change, Tesla is now offering the upgrade for $5,000, which is $1,000 less than the earlier pricing.
Tesla hasn't conveyed a reason for the change and is not expected to do so, as it dissolved its PR department earlier this year.
