If you buy a new Model S, Model X, or Model 3 today, you'll need to purchase an $ 3,000 autopilot and $ 5,000 in full self-drive capabilities. The manufacturer says autopilot "allows your car to automatically steer, accelerate and brake for other vehicles and pedestrians within its lane." Meanwhile, FSD offers the possibility that your car can find you anywhere in a parking lot (Summon), park alone (Auto Park), and adds the company's most stable self-drive features (Navigate on Autopilot). Later this year, Tesla expects to detect and respond to stop signs and traffic lights and automatically navigate the city streets.

Tesla has taken the FSD option from its online stores late last year. At that time, it cost at most $ 5,000.
Tesla notes that although they are called "autopilot" and "full self-driving," none of these levels makes the vehicles autonomous. "The autopilot and full-self-driving features in their current form require active driver oversight at all times," says the company.
Each Tesla car has some advanced features: Standard: Automatic emergency braking, Lane departure warning, Forward and side clearance collision warning, and blind spot warnings. Even if you order a Model 3 today – even the $ 35,000 model – with no autopilot or FSD features, your vehicle still has these safety standards.
