Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Sunday that the current version of what the company calls its full self-driving feature will be priced from $12,000 to $15,000 starting September 5.
That’s on top of the current cost of Teslas, which range from a low-end Model 3, starting around $47,000, to a high-end Model X, starting around $121,000.
Musk revealed the price change in a tweet:
According to the company’s website, the current subscription price for Full Self-Driving Capability is $99 to $199 per month, depending on the vehicle’s version of Tesla’s Autopilot technology. It was not immediately clear if this price also changed.
Electric transportation website Electrek reported that the latest version of Tesla’s full self-driving capability includes improvements for left turns, improved animal and pedestrian detection, and smoother stops.
Technology does not allow Teslas to drive themselves without human participation. It forces drivers to pay attention to the road, keep their hands on the wheel at all times and remain aware of the navigation route.
“Features currently enabled require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle self-driving,” Tesla said on its website.
