After paying big for a new Tesla, you’re far from done. Of course you want to take advantage of exclusive extras that Tesla offers, but that comes with a (new) price tag.
Previously, it was only possible to unlock the “Full Self-Driving feature” for your Tesla car with a $10,000 one-time payment, but it is now also available as a subscription. According to the car manufacturer’s website, customers (currently only American) can access the function that allows the driver to drive the car slightly less automatically for $199 per month.
