Tesla points out that the price of the full self-driving package is going to go up to $ 10,000, which in Elon Musk’s opinion is a good deal.
The decision to pre-sell the “full self-driving” package on its vehicles was controversial, in short, years before it planned to make the technology available through software.
This is a bold move from Tesla, which has been criticized for a number of reasons.
Some say that it is confusing for consumers to think that Tesla vehicles currently have self-driving capabilities, but they do not.
Although the features offered in the package have not been delivered, Tesla has been criticized by others for changing the price of the package up and down.
Last year, CEO Elon Musk clarified Tesla’s pricing strategy when talking about the “full self-driving” package: Tesla is going to increase the price of the package as new features are introduced.
Elon Musk, now CEO, says Monday will see an additional $ 2,000 increase:
The Musk price increase is linked to Tesla releasing a full self-driving beta update this week.
Earlier today, we reported First look at the full self-driving beta update, It’s notable yet, but it has only been released to a limited number of people.
Although it looks like a $ 10,000 package for a software package, Musk warns that prices will continue to rise in the future:
FSD prices will continue to rise as the software approaches full self-driving capabilities with regulatory approval. Until then, the value of FSD will probably exceed 000 100,000.
As more features are released towards the goal of full self-driving, Tesla plans to increase the price of the package going forward.
We see a lot of people pulling the trigger and spending $ 8,000 before the price hike on Monday.
Even Electric’s Seth Ventrob, who had healthy doubts about Tesla’s ability to deliver a fully self-driving system, was forced to pull the trigger after seeing the first appearance of the beta update.
This is still not really practical, but it shows that Tesla is very close.
If you want my opinion, I think Tesla’s promise is now very likely to be fulfilled, and I think this $ 2,000 price increase is just a start.
