For Tesla owners in the US, the price of the Full Self-Driving (FSD) upgrade increased overnight as planned, jumping to $10,000.
CEO Elon Musk announced the price increase last week after the release of the first FSD beta software to a few lucky owners. The price change was originally supposed to happen on Monday and impact owners around the world.
As he is well known to do, Musk delayed the price change after considering feedback from owners that not enough notice was given.
Musk also changed his original plan so it would only impact US owners, given that is the only market where the FSD beta software is currently available.
Price change is pushed to Thursday next week. Applies only to US for now. One week clock will start in other countries as beta is released. FSD monthly rental will also be available sometime next year.

As Musk notes in his tweet, the price increase will apply to other markets as the release of the FSD software is expanded. This gives Canadians plenty of notice to know what to expect when we finally see it north of the border.
With the current price of FSD in Canada already sitting at $10,600 (plus taxes), a similar price change would see the price increase to more than $13,000.
If that is too much for you, an FSD subscription option will be coming next year. No details on pricing have been revealed, but Musk has said in the past it will be more expensive than buying it outright.
Will you be buying FSD before the price increases again in Canada? Let us know in the comments below.
