Following the reversal of Tesla's sales and pricing strategy, the automaker is also changing autopilot pricing, which will normalize on Monday, CEO Elon Musk said.
Tesla's recent price changes have been controversial, but not more than those relating to the autopilot and full self-driving packages, as the automaker has changed the pricing for software updates it never delivered.
The automaker also offered buyers a cheaper offer by ordering the software before delivery – incentives for it, but after price changes last month, they would have saved thousands of dollars if they had waited for features they never did would have gotten.
Now Musk says prices will "return to normal" Monday March 1
These prices will normalize again on Monday

They will return to normal, along with a 3% rise in prices across the board (with the exception of Model 3 for the $ 35,000 base) as a result of the partial reversal of the new online online strategy. Trade.
When my tweet explained the situation described above, Musk admitted it was a mistake to drop it. Prices First:
In retrospect, no lower price should be offered. It was done that way because some just could not afford it. On Monday the prices are back to normal.

Musk says that owners who bought the Full Self-Driving package before the price decline still have access to the Early Access program.
All buyers of a Full Self-Driving package will also receive the upcoming computer upgrade for Autopilot Hardware 3.0.
Dear God, this insanely complicated price situation is getting crazier.
At least Elon admitted that it was not fair to cut EAP and FSD prices in the first place.
At the same time, it created another incentive for owners to buy the packages immediately before they become more expensive next week.
You've got me for another $ 2,600 tonight:
I expect many other owners will do the same as me – which means a significant cash injection for Tesla.
Elon really made a mistake that he now noticed in retrospect or was it a master plan
Honestly, I do not know about Tesla at this time. Let us know in the comments below.
