Now, of course, there’s a bit of a catch to all of this. All Model X and recent Model S vehicles left the factory with Autopilot hardware. If the owner wanted it activated at the time of purchase, they paid $2,500 for the tech suite.
If they wish to have it activated after the one-month free trial, however, the price jumps to $3,000 — $500 more than if they’d ordered it before testing it.
Certainly, 500 extra big ones is a small price to pay for such a robust system on a car that costs more than $100,000 to begin with. Still, it’s not nothing.
