Elon Musk said on Twitter that starting on September 5 the cost of a Tesla autopilot in the US will increase to $15,000. He cited the new version 10.69, which is a “huge stride ahead,” as the cause of the price increase.
In 2019, the cost of the autopilot was $5,000, however it has since gone up annually. The price was already increased from $ 10,000 to $ 12,000 at the beginning of this year.
In the past, Musk has said that the cost of autopilot will rise when additional capabilities are added. This technology could eventually cost more than $100,000.
