Paying up. Or not.

Congrats, you just bought a Tesla. Now get ready to pay up.

The electric car maker is breaking new ground yet again, this time by offering a subscription to unlock its “Full Self-Driving” feature. According to Tesla’s website, for a monthly fee of $199 customers can access the not-fully autonomous capabilities of their electric automobiles.

“With Full Self-Driving (FSD) capability, you will get access to a suite of more advanced driver assistance features, designed to provide more active guidance and assisted driving under your active supervision,” explains the company.

Tesla’s FSD, which earlier in July received an update to Version 9.0 that’s still in Beta, requires users to actively supervise driving and be ready to take back control at the blink of an eye.

In addition to the subscription package, Tesla’s FSD is also available for purchase for the price of $10,000.

At present, Tesla says that the subscription update is only available for vehicles in the U.S. The company also reiterates that, despite the name, you really should not treat the yearly $2,388 (plus tax) feature as something that will actually make your car self-driving — or at least not safely.

“The currently enabled features require a fully attentive driver, who has their hands on the wheel and is prepared to take over at any moment.”

At least with a FSD subscription, you can cancel any time.
