Tesla has long sought to create an autonomous driving system for its electric cars. This is already available, though gradually to be tested more comprehensively.
Of course, this is not a system offered by the company and therefore should be purchased. Tesla has now decided to help with this purchase by raising the price of Full Self-Driving, but this offer is not for everyone.
Completely self-driving is the future of Tesla
Although not a fully autonomous system, Tesla's complete self-management manages to give its electric cars a long range. This system, for the most part, does not require driver intervention, providing great control.
To access this feature, users need to purchase additional, which is expensive. You have to pay a price to have this novelty and this unique driving aid. Fully self-driving is available in isolation or integrated into the Enhanced Autopilot package.
Reduced cost of Enhanced Autopilot
It was the latter who now saw how discreetly and quietly his price was adjusted. Tesla thus reduced a thousand dollars in this package, changing the price of Full Self-Driving. This now costs $ 5,000.
This is good news for anyone considering buying fully self-driving, especially in the Enhanced Autopilot package. This brings more features and, above all, the promise of access to new features that need to be developed in the future.
The value varies in cars over time
For now, the price of the Improved Autopilot is $ 10,000 (€ 7,500), but prices may vary. Tesla itself says that these and other accessories can be added later, but that their price may vary over time.
Once again, the modularity of Tesla systems has been proven. Each component can be updated independently and added or removed over time. This, of course, has an impact on the price everyone gets for the end customer.
