Tesla FSD Prices in Canada Get a $5,000 Price Cut • iPhone in Canada Blog

Tesla recently introduced monthly Full Self-Driving (FSD) plans in Canada, priced at $99 CAD. The move came after the company cut its monthly subscription in the US by half to $99 USD.

Now Tesla continues to make changes to FSD, reducing the one-time lifetime purchase price in Canada by $5,000 to $11,000 CAD, reports Tesla North. This seems like a much easier pill to swallow compared to the previous CAD price of $16,000. However, it may still be better to pay $99 per month, if you’re not going to pay $11,000 up front.

This move follows a similar price cut in the US, to $8,000 USD (from $12,000 USD).

“Your car will be able to drive itself virtually anywhere with minimal driver intervention and will continually improve,” Tesla explains, noting that the feature will include on-street Autosteer and traffic light and stop sign control.

“The currently enabled features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous. The activation and use of these features is dependent on achieving reliability far greater than that of human drivers, as evidenced by billions of miles of experience, as well as regulatory approval, which may take longer in some jurisdictions. As these self-driving features develop, your car will be continuously upgraded through over-the-air software updates,” Tesla explains.

Also changed was the abolition of Enhanced Autopilot (EAP), which included all the features of FSD except Autosteer and Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control, two key features that allowed your car to move from one destination to another. EAP also included the ability to automatically change lanes and the ability to take highway entrances and exits, in combination with Summon and Smart Summon, which allows you to control your car using the Tesla app.

Tesla also added a discount for those who purchased EAP to upgrade to FSD, now a $2,750 CAD upgrade.

The latest version of FSD version 12.3.x and above has introduced a new level of human-like performance over version 11. We have seen that FSD (Supervised, as it is called) can automatically switch to the correct light on a highway when it detects a driver approaching quickly from behind, then shifts back to the left after that car has passed. But FSD 12.3.x is still not perfect, but so far it offers an impressive version of FSD that we haven’t seen before.

Tesla recently announced that it will cut 10% of its global workforce, showing that it is not immune to economic challenges like other companies. This move was made to allow the company to focus on its next phase of growth, said CEO Elon Musk, who has apparently now entered “war mode” to fuel the company’s next efforts for a Robotaxi unveiling scheduled for 8 August to be performed.
