Elon Musk, Tesla Inc’s chief executive officer, tweeted on Friday that the electric carmaker will increase the price of its “Full Self Driving” driver assistance software to $12,000 on January 17, Reuters reported.
Earlier in 2020, Tesla had raised the Full Self-Driving (FSD) price to $10,000 from $8,000.
“Tesla FSD price rising to $12k on Jan 17. Just in the US.” Musk tweeted.
“FSD price will rise as we get closer to FSD production code release,” he added in another tweet.
Tesla has been updating its FSD software, which provides driving-assistance features such as automatically changing lanes and making turns, but does not make the cars autonomous.
