Tesla to charge monthly subscription fee for navigation after 8 years

The American electric car maker though is yet to announce the subscription pricing for the standard connectivity package.

Customers buying Tesla vehicles on or after July 20 will get the free standard connectivity package for the first eight years only.

The Standard Connectivity package which comes with just the integrated navigation feature was until recently offered free of cost for the entire lifetime of the vehicle. However, Tesla has now decided to offer the feature at no cost for the first eight years only. Customers who want to continue using the navigation feature after 8 years will have to start paying Tesla a monthly subscription fee. The American electric car maker though is yet to announce the subscription pricing for the standard connectivity package.

Tesla also offers its customers a Premium Connectivity package, which includes features such as live traffic visualisation, internet browsing, sentry mode and video & music streaming among others. While the standard package was always free, the premium package costed an additional US$ 9.99 per month or US$ 99 per year. Reports also suggest that Tesla could migrate some of the premium features to the standard package to help attract customers.
