Drivers will have to shell out $ 200 per month if they want to benefit from this semi-autonomous driving system.



True to its reputation, the exuberant automaker Elon Musk does nothing like its competitors.

Announced at the end of 2020, the autopilot system will now be available in the United States for rental, for the low price of $ 199 per month.

For cars purchased before 2019, curious customers will have to update the system for $ 1,000, however, according to Les Numériques newspaper.

While the semi-autonomous navigation system of the American brand was under fire from critics a few months ago, its reliability being questioned, it does not intend to drop the matter.

To popularize the device and make it more accessible, the “

FSD

” (Full Self Driving) system can be reserved, such as a subscription to the gym or the cinema, via the Tesla app.

As the software is constantly updated by the manufacturer, the cars are already equipped with the necessary system.

Future sector

The FSD makes it possible in particular to change lanes on the motorway, automatic branching to an exit or recognition of traffic lights and stop signs.

For the moment, no prospect of exporting this rental system to the Old Continent, often delivered with a little delay.

This approach is followed by other manufacturers who see this software as sectors of the future like Mercedes, BMW or Audi.
