Tesla has reduced the price of its "Full Self-Driving" package upgrade for owners who currently have the Enhanced Autopilot package.
Earlier this year, they killed the Enhanced Autopilot package and released some features to create a base Autopilot package, which they made standard on all Tesla vehicles.
They added the features of the Full Self-Driving option and increased the price to $ 6,000 if ordered before delivery – $ 8,000 if ordered after delivery.
Features include:  Navigate on Autopilot: automatic drive from highway to ramp, including exchanger and bypass slower cars.
Later, Tesla changed this structure by having different prices before or after delivery.
Since May, every Tesla owner can now upgrade to the $ 6,000 Full Self-Driving package, but the car manufacturer reserves the right to continue to raise the price in the future.
It caused a problem for Tesla owners with the Enhanced Autopilot package, because if they wanted to update to the Full Self-Driving package, they had to pay more because Tesla added features in the package that they already paid for in the package Enhanced Autopilot.
A week ago, CEO Elon Musk acknowledged the issue in a tweet to a customer:
Agreed, should be $ 3,000 less to get to the FSD from EAP

Today, Tesla followed and reduced the price of the Full Self-Driving Package to $ 3,000 for people who have the Enhanced Autopilot package:
We contacted Tesla about the change and we will update if they have any information to add.
This has been expected since Tesla released the feature from the base Autopilot package.
Now what EAP owners get for $ 3000 is lifted from the FSD package "this year":
- Recognize and respond to traffic lights and stop signs.
- Automatic driving in city streets.
But they will also get the new HW3 computer when Tesla begins offering retrofit.
If you think it's worth $ 3000, it's up to you.
Tesla also says it will be more expensive when the company actually starts supplying some of these features, but prices have always fluctuated, so it is difficult to take Tesla too seriously when predicting prices right now.
