Tesla Inc. (TSLA.O) CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter on Friday that the electric car manufacturer will call it a “fully autonomous driving” advanced driver assistance system on January 17. The price of software in the United States rose to $12,000.
The 20% price rise comes less than two years since Tesla raised Full Self-Driving (FSD) prices to $10,000 from $8,000 in 2020.
“Tesla FSD price rising to $12k on Jan 17. Just in the US.” Musk tweeted.
Musk also added that the monthly subscription price will rise when FSD goes to wide release.
“FSD price will rise as we get closer to FSD production code release,” he tweeted.
Tesla has been expanding the release of a test version of its upgraded FSD software, which is a driving assistance system-such as automatically changing lanes and turning, but these features do not make the vehicle self-driving.
