Tesla has brought back Enhanced Autopilot (EAP) to Australia and New Zealand, giving owners the opportunity to try out most of the features included in Full Self-Driving (FSD) Capability, but for about half the price.

The suite of driver assist features is almost the same as that of FSD Capability, with the exception being that it does not include Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control.

While the features are almost identical, the two prices are very different.

In Australia FSD Capability costs AUD$10,100, while EAP will only set you back AUD$5,100. New Zealanders have to pay NZD $11,400 and $5,700 for FSD Capability and EAP respectively. (h/t: @EVHQ2)

EAP is available on the Model 3 and Model Y, but not the Model S and Model X as those are still unavailable to order outside of North America.

Despite offering EAP as an option to existing owners and buyers, Elon Musk said the FSD Beta program could be expanding to right-hand drive (RHD) countries like Australia and New Zealand later this year.

The good news keeps rolling for Tesla owners and fans down under. Last week orders for the Model Y were finally launched in both markets, more than two years after the electric SUV first launched in North America.

When it arrives it will be missing radar after Tesla announced last week cars built from June 2022 for the Australian and New Zealand market will instead use the camera-based Tesla Vision.
