Tesla offers a discount on Full Self-Driving for EAP owners

-

There was a time in Tesla’s history when there were two levels of the Autopilot package, Enhanced Autopilot (EAP) and the other one known as Full Self-Driving (FSD). EAP with its limited features was offered for a lower price tag compared to the FSD package. At the time Tesla customers purchased the EAP package for $5,000.

Later on, Tesla decided to make it more clear and included the minimum safety features included with every car that goes out of the factory and offer a single Autopilot (FSD) package for the more advanced features like Autopark, Smart Summon, Navigate on Autopilot (highways) and now preparing to launch Autosteer on City Streets (only available to select beta testers at the moment).

Just after the successful launch of the FSD Beta, Tesla increased the price of the FSD package from $8,000 to $10,000. Tesla owners who had been sticking to the EAP package they bought before Feb 2019, also had to pay an additional $2k if they wanted to upgrade to the currently attractive FSD bundle.

This move by Tesla move shot up the price of FSD upgrade for EAP owners from $5k to $7k. Now Tesla is offering Enhanced Autopilot owners a $2,000 discount to upgrade to FSD. This brings the price for FSD for them back to $5,000.

Several EAP owners have posted the offer appearing in their Tesla Account. The sentiment of these owners is if Tesla had offered this discount before the price upgrade in late October, they would’ve been able to get FSD for $3,000 instead of $5,000.

As a limited time offer back in July this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that EAP owners can upgrade to FSD for just $3k. This must-have converted many but there definitely is still a pool of cars equipped with the old EAP package which Tesla is trying to convert to Full Self-Driving in order to streamline the software development and deployment process.

The confusion of EAP and FSD has been going on for about two years now and at one time Tesla had to publish a full blog post to bring clarity to the matter, yet things are still messed up a bit.

However, there is no evidence that the current $2k discount offer is a permanent one or for a limited time only. Stay tuned and we will be posting an update if there is an update on the matter.
