Tesla FSD Subscription Price Slashed To  A Month

Tesla FSD Subscription Price Slashed To $99 A Month

Tesla (TSLA) late Friday cut the price of Supervised Full Self-Driving to $99 a month from $199, confirming online chatter. Tesla stock rose a fraction after the close.

A lower price should boost Tesla FSD subscriptions, but would need to double the tax rate to generate more revenue.

Also, the lower rate could spur more people to subscribe to FSD vs. paying the $12,000 for a lifetime service. At $99 a month, it would take just over 10 years to pay $12,000 in FSD subscription fees.

However, the company has begun offering free FSD transfers to a new Tesla vehicle. Also, if FSD shows dramatic improvement and attracts heavy demand, Tesla would likely hike prices substantially.

FSD, despite its name, is a Level 2 system that requires a human driver to be paying attention and ready to take over at any time.

In late March, the EV giant activated one free month of FSD for all capable vehicles.

During Friday’s session, there was growing buzz that the FSD subscription rate would be halved to $99. Tesla CEO Elon Musk liked multiple posts on his social site X that favored a $99 FSD monthly rate.

So the actual announcement wasn’t a big surprise.

Tesla Stock In Late Trading

Tesla stock edged up 0.3% in late trade. Shares fell 2% to 171.05 in Friday’s stock market trading. TSLA stock gained 3.7% for the week, buoyed by Musk’s promise of a robotaxi unveiling on Aug. 8.
