“Price increase for Tesla FSD postponed until version 10 with smart summon is in wide release, which is about 4 to 8 weeks away, depending on how early access goes”
I know this was mentioned in another thread, but it was worth promoting to a new topic.
I almost posted yesterday that I bet he is waiting for the price increase when V10 is ready to roll. I believe he had stated that V10 was approximately August 16th so I assumed that was the reasoning behind the date.
It just gives folks some more time to get in on the lower price. I flipped the switch August 1st. I don’t really get why folks are up in arms about it pushing back a little bit.
If you want it, get it. If you don’t want it, don’t get it. If you bought before August 16th then you obviously wanted it.
Funny how the schedule moved from "before the end of August" to "about 4 to 8 weeks away."
(Actually, nobody expected it this month. But all us owners love playing Charlie Brown to Elon's Lucy, as he yanks the football away from us again.)
My guess: 2020
Like I’ve said in other threads, if Smart Summon is the only thing holding up V10, I think they’ll eventually release V10 without Smart Summon and add Smart Summon in a point release. I think Smart Summon is more challenging to get right than Navigate on Autopilot on city streets (as long as there’s a driver to take over). Whether the FSD price increase is tied to the release of V10 vs. Smart Summon remains to be seen.
Ready to purchase FSD, but the purchase option disappeared from my Tesla home page. ??
@rainrider: Which car do you have, and do you already have AP? Where in your account are you looking?
@rainrider - Looks like the Tesla account page -> Manage has completely changed from a week ago. My guess is this is a work in progress and the buy FSD needs to be added. I bought FSD after purchase, and once I did, the option to buy it disappeared. In the new View status, it only states "Full Self-Driving Capability": It appears the status is only when the vehicle was first purchased and not the current status.
@TT: “Full Self-Driving Capability” is what Tesla calls the FSD option, so that’s correct. On my wife’s Model 3 page, that appears under Post Delivery Options.
