According to the report of Bloomberg, Tesla is ready to charge $15000 for providing the features of driver assistance. The company calls it full self-driving. It would be the second price hike within one year for this controversial product.
Musk had recently tweeted that North American customers will see a price hike from September 5. The firm will honor all the orders made before this date at the current price of $12000.
The report also suggests that some are criticizing the use of the term Full Self-Driving by Tesla. It is because the feature requires active supervision, and it does not make the vehicle autonomous.
According to the Californian Department of Motor Vehicles, the company’s claims are misleading the customers. In reality, this feature is only for the Autopilot mode.
Moreover, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the United States has launched two investigations to look into the matter. The report said that the authorities would check if the Autopilot system was defective.
