As usual, the announcement came through Musk’s Twitter task.
Tesla’s “complete self-driving” function (FSD) had a turbulent history, to put it mildly. There were a lot of problems, first problems with software errors and then through supervision by many regulatory bodies. Also, now autonomous driving will cost even more. An additional $ 2,000, which is added to the not so small price, a total of $ 12,000. This is not the first time that the FSD has become more expensive. In 2020 Musk (again, on Twitter-u) announced a price increase of approximately $ 2,000.
This latest increase, Musk explained, it will only be valid in the United States. He also added that “the price of this feature will increase as we approach the release of the FSD product code.” Whether this means that there are plans for even further price increases can only be guessed at. Tesla famously disbanded its corporate communications department at about the same time that the FSD received a price of $ 10,000.
It is noticeable that the purchase of the “complete self-driving” function does not actually result in a car that drives itself. This is mainly why they are senators Markey i Blumenthal called on the FTC to investigate Tesla and Musk-a due to, among other things, “overestimating the ability of their vehicle”.
According to one study, only about 11 percent of Tesla owners set aside money to have the option of FSD, and it is hard to imagine how increasing the financial burden on customers could reverse this trend.
