To make sure that Tesla reaches its sales goals before 2022, the company has dropped prices on vehicles and offered discounts for Models S and X. But that’s not all – to sweeten the deal even further, they’ve come up with a new holiday bonus: free Enhanced Autopilot access for 30 days! This is an exciting opportunity for those looking to get their hands on a Tesla vehicle in 2021.
Tesla’s discounts, complimentary Supercharger miles, and the newly-released Enhanced Autopilot ought to induce further sales growth in upcoming days. Reports already show that these incentives have triggered a marked decrease of inventories – notably in places where electric vehicles are popularly appreciated.
Offering a complimentary 30-day trial of Enhanced Autopilot could be an effective way to persuade potential Tesla owners to pay the full $6,000 for the feature once their trial has expired. Moreover, it could also inspire them to go all out and invest in Tesla’s Full Self-Driving beta at a cost of $15,000.
On the flip side, the trial could demonstrate to some owners that Enhanced Autopilot is currently adequate and they may not be willing to invest in FSD. In such cases, they can easily opt for a monthly subscription of FSD instead.
Tesla owners in Australia and New Zealand were pleasantly surprised to receive a “Happy Holidays!” message from Tesla along with the free trial of Enhanced Autopilot. While it is unknown whether this offer extends beyond those two countries, reports are beginning to appear online regarding the exciting holiday gift.
Ok this is pretty cool, users are reporting free trials of Enhanced Autopilot for 30 days. I already have it on the Model Y and FSD on the Model 3, but neat they are offering this. Auto Lane Change is definitely the most useful feature. pic.twitter.com/GSVhAj0Nti— techAU (@techAU) December 23, 2022
As evident from the tweet by @techAU, Enhanced Autopilot offers capabilities that surpass traditional Autopilot; nonetheless, it does not deliver all of the features accessible with Tesla’s FSD beta.
Tesla’s Enhanced Autopilot boasts features such as Navigate on Autopilot, Auto Lane Change, Autopark, Summon and Smart Summon. However for an additional $9000 USD you can upgrade to the Full Self-Driving Beta package which includes Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control in addition to those previously listed. Furthermore Tesla has announced that soon their FSD beta will include Autosteer on City Streets too.
