While Musk recently said the subscription package will be available early next year, adding the tech for good has come at varying prices over the last few months. Now, as Tesla pushes to meet goals for record deliveries by the end of the year, it’s become an incentive.
Not everyone is happy about the offer however, particularly because of how Tesla advertises its Autopilot “advanced safety and convenience feature” and the “Full Self-Driving” tech. As the the Tesla website notes in slightly smaller print “The currently enabled features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous.”
NTSB member Jennifer Homendy noted the difference in a thread of tweets, saying “‘Full self-driving’ suggests that the vehicle can drive itself right now, without input from a human operator. That’s not true. There should be safeguards in place to prevent such deceptive claims.”
