Video: Elon Musk Said That A Full-fledged Autopilot Will Double The Price Of Any Tesla
The head of Tesl, Elon Musk, said that by the time Tesla cars can drive completely independently, that is, they receive the autopilot of the maximum - fifth - level, this complex will have to pay about $ 100,000 (7.3 million rubles) to the price of the car itself. According to tradition, Musk made this assessment on his Twitter account.
The FSD price will continue to rise as the software gets closer to full self-driving capability with regulatory approval. It that point, the value of FSD is probably somewhere in excess of $ 100,000.

- Level 5 autopilot means that the car will be able to drive without the assistance of a driver in any road conditions. So far, the most modern systems installed on production models (including Tesla electric vehicles) reach a maximum of the third level. Such cars can only move independently in close to ideal conditions and under the control of the driver. More advanced systems are not yet ready and legalized in any country.
However, Tesl has been selling electric vehicles with an option called Full Self-Driving (FSD) for several years now. It includes all the equipment necessary for fully autonomous movement - cameras, radars and a powerful processor for data processing. At the same time, as Electrek specifies, Tesla still does not have ready-made software for a full-fledged autopilot. It is this that will almost double the price of the car in the future.
- Elon Musk also announced that from June 1, the cost of the FSD option for Tesl models will increase from $ 7,000 (507 thousand rubles) to $ 8,000 (580 thousand rubles).
- At what stage is the development of Tesla's software for fully autonomous driving is unknown.
