Complete Guide to Autopilot, Enhanced Autopilot, and Full Self-Driving Capability

Jul 22, 2019   

Tesla has been making changes to the way that the company bundles and sells its autonomous driving features. We’re here to help break it down for those considering a new or used Tesla. 


Autopilot is included on every new Tesla sold today. This feature enables your Tesla to drive, brake, and steer automatically on highways. 

Enhanced Autopilot

Enhanced Autopilot was previously offered as a $5,000 option on Tesla’s sold prior to 2019. Enhanced Autopilot includes Autopilot, and also comes with:

• Navigate on Autopilot

• Auto Lane Change

• Autopark 

• Summon

Full Self-Driving

Full Self-Driving includes everything included in Enhanced Autopilot, as well as the capability for fully autonomous driving in future updates, as the name implies. This is currently available as a $6,000 option on new Tesla’s, but the price is expected to go up over time as Tesla adds new features.  

Adding Autopilot to a Used Tesla

For those who purchased a used Tesla that doesn’t include Autopilot or Enhanced Autopilot, Autopilot is available to add for $3,000 after delivery. 

Enhanced Autopilot is no longer available, as Full Self-Driving includes all of the features that were previously included in Enhanced Autopilot. 

Adding Full Self-Driving to a Used Tesla

Full Self-Driving capability can be added for an additional $6,000 to a Tesla that’s equipped with Autopilot. 

For those that purchased a used Tesla that already includes Enhanced Autopilot, Full Self-Driving can be added for $3,000. 

If your Tesla already includes Autopilot and Full Self-Driving, then you will receive all future autonomous updates and features. 

Please note this only applies to Tesla’s with Autopilot 2.0 hardware: late 2016+ Model S and Model X, all Model 3 vehicles.

Update NOVEMBER 16. 2019
Tesla increased the price of Full Self-Driving by $1,000 on November 1st, with the price expected to continue increasing over time as Tesla adds more features.
