Tesla to Offer Monthly FSD Subscription in 2021

Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed in a response on Twitter, Tesla will release its Full Self-Driving software package in the form of a monthly subscription service “early next year”.

After rumors began circulation suggesting Tesla was working on a pay-as-you-go subscription for its Full Self-Driving (FSD) package, Musk confirmed and said the company would release the option “towards the end of the year”

Tesla released a beta version of it’s Full Self-Driving software to a small group of early access owners in October. At the end of November, Musk revealed in another Twitter response that a wider release of the beta should be expected in about two weeks.

Now we are learning that Tesla owners and leasees will be able to purchase the Full Self-Driving software as a monthly subscription starting as early as the beginning of 2021:

Although this is a great option for those who can’t or just aren’t willing to shell out the $10,000 for the feature, Musk reiterated that buying the FSD package is the smartest move financially: ’I should say, it will still make sense to buy FSD as an option as in our view, buying FSD is an investment in the future. And we are confident that it is an investment that will pay off to the consumer — to the benefit of the consumer. In my opinion, buying FSD option is something people will not regret doing”

Musk also mentioned that he was considering letting Tesla buyers transfer ownership of the Full Self-Driving package if they decide to upgrade their Tesla vehicle. However, that decision is still up in the air.
