Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, announced on Sunday that starting on September 5, the cost of the current version of what the firm refers to as its complete self-driving capability will rise from $12,000 to $15,000.
In addition to that, Teslas are currently expensive, with the lowest-priced Model 3 starting at around $47,000 and the highest-priced Model X at roughly $121,000.
Musk tweeted about the pricing change:
Depending on the vehicle’s version of Tesla’s Autopilot technology, according to the company’s website, the monthly membership fee for full self-driving capabilities ranges from $99 to $199. If that price is altering as well, it was not immediately apparent.
According to the electric transportation website Electrek, the most recent version of Tesla’s full self-driving capability features stronger animal and pedestrian detection, smoother stops, and better left turns.
Tesla cars cannot drive themselves without human intervention thanks to current technology. It requires drivers must stay alert, maintain their hands on the wheel at all times, and be aware of their surroundings, including the navigation path.
According to a statement on Tesla’s website, “the currently available functions require active driver supervision and do not render the vehicle autonomous.”
