During Tesla’s Q4 Earning’s Call, CEO Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla will roll out a Full Self-Driving (FSD) subscription service within the next two months.
Costing $10,600 CAD, Tesla’s FSD is the program and framework for semi-autonomous driving in Tesla vehicles. Tesla vehicles with FSD can drive on highways, change lanes, autosteer on city streets, auto park and even be summoned by their owner autonomously.
No details on the pricing of the subscription service were revealed. Musk has previously confirmed that purchasing FSD outright would be the better financial decision for most users. However, the pay-per-month model is an attractive option for many.
For instance, some Tesla owners would prefer a monthly alternative to the purchase cost that FSD currently demands. Companies may also opt to pay monthly for fleet vehicles that cycle in and out of service like robotaxi fleets.
After rumours of the service arose in April 2020, it was nice to see Musk offer a new timeframe of when it will arrive. It will be interesting to see how many Tesla owners opt-in for a monthly subscription who originally decided against the additional cost of buying it outright.
