Elon Musk on Sunday tweeted that Tesla will raise the price of its "Full Self-Driving" beta software in North America from $12,000 to $15,000 on Sept. 5.
Orders made before that date will still cost $12,000, Musk wrote. The company has increased the price of FSD multiple times, most recently on Jan. 17, when the price.
The price hike will follow the wide release of FSD beta version 10.69.2, Musk noted in the tweet. In a separate tweet, Musk wrote that FSD beta 10.69 had begun to roll out, and "10.69.2 in a few weeks should be good enough to provide to all FSD beta participants." According to TechCrunch, this version "boasts upgrades like improved unprotected left turns, a 17% improvement of velocity error for pedestrians and bicyclists, and a new 'deep lane guidance' module for smoother lane switches."
Musk also wrote that Tesla owners can upgrade their existing car to FSD in two minutes through the Tesla app.
