Tesla’s Full Self-Driving software is about to get even more expensive.

As announced by Elon Musk over Twitter, Tesla plans to increase the price of its Full Self-Driving software to $15,000 on September 5. This is a $3,000 increase over the current price, which stands at $12,000.

Musk confirmed that Tesla will honor the current $12,000 price on orders made before that date, although these orders will be “delivered later.”

Here’s how Tesla describes the technology:

Autopilot is an advanced driver assistance system that assists your car with steering, accelerating and braking for other vehicles and pedestrians within its lane. It assists with the most burdensome parts of driving and work alongside features like emergency braking, collision warning and blind-spot monitoring.

With Full Self-Driving (FSD) capability, you will get access to a suite of more advanced driver assistance features, designed to provide more active guidance and assisted driving under your active supervision.

FSD cost customers $5,000 to add the software during configuration and $7,000 post-delivery when Tesla initially began offering the tech as a separate option from Autopilot, but at the start of this year, the price of FSD had already gone from $10,000 to $12,000, as noted by Engadget.

It’s unclear whether the pricing for FSD subscription plans might also be going up. Basic Autopilot to FSD capability and Enhanced Autopilot to FSD capability plans currently cost $199 and $99 per month, respectively.
