Tesla has reduced the price of its Full Self-Driving software in the US and Canada. Per a post from the company on X, it now costs $8,000 in the US (or $11,000 for buyers in Canada) to add the so-called Full Self-Driving (FSD) Capability. This is down from $12,000 ($16,000 CAD), according to Electrek, which also reports that Tesla has discontinued the $6,000 Enhanced Autopilot option. Current owners with that package can upgrade to FSD for $2,000. Teslas driver assistance features have been under scrutiny from regulators for years, and despite the name, Full Self-Driving isnt meant to fully take over for a human driver at this stage. On its website, Tesla notes that current FSD features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous. In March, the company reportedly introduced a mandate requiring its staff to give buyers a demonstration of FSD before theyre able to take home their new cars, so they can see what the software has to offer. The latest price drop comes a few days after Tesla slashed the monthly cost of its subscription for FSD which it has recently been referring to as Full Self-Driving (Supervised). The subscription, which previously cost $199/month, now goes for $99/month. Tesla also cut the starting prices of its Model Y, X and S vehicles this weekend by $2,000 each. Earlier this month, Tesla reported that its vehicle deliveries for Q1 2024 fell short of expectations, with an eight percent drop year-over-year.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/tesla-makes-its-controversial-full-self-driving-software-cheaper-by-4000-184737580.html?src=rss
