Tesla raises the price of full self-driving software in the US by up to $12,000, tweets CEO Elon Musk

Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Friday that the electric carmaker will increase the US price of its advanced driver assistant software “Full Self Driving” to $12,000 (approximately Rs 8.9 lakh) on January 17.

The 20 per cent price increase comes less than two years after Tesla raised full self-driving (FSD) prices to $10,000 (approximately Rs 7.42 lakh) from $8,000 (about Rs 5.93 lakh) in 2020.

“Tesla FSD price increased to $12k on Jan. 17. US only.” Musk tweeted.

Musk also said that the monthly subscription price will increase once FSD has a wider release.

“As we get closer to releasing the FSD production code, the price of FSD will increase,” he tweeted.

Tesla is expanding the release of a trial version of its advanced FSD software, a system of driving-assistance features – such as automatically changing lanes and making turns, but the features do not make vehicles autonomous
