Tesla 'Premium connectivity' will now pay off


Services The monthly "premium connectivity" subscription is available for $9.99 for Tesla owners.

The Internet connection provided on Teslas is now paid for. The American manufacturer sent an email to its customers on Saturday citing a subscription of $9.99 per month, or about 9 euros. At this rate, the user benefits from a service called "premium connectivity."

This connection was offered free of charge and throughout the life of the vehicle to all purchasers of a Tesla ordered before July 1, 2018, electrek said. With the exception of the Model 3. For these customers, Internet access will always remain free. Others must sign up for the monthly paid subscription if they want to access "premium connectivity."
 
A proposed trial offer

Tesla began distinguishing between two connection offers last summer. Standard connectivity offers basic features in mapping, music and media via Bluetooth and software updates through wifi and cellular network. The premium version offers navigation services based on satellite images and real-time traffic information. Audio and video streaming are also included in this release, as is an Internet browser for the Model S and Model X.

The e-mail received by the owners of a vehicle ordered after July 1, 2018 indicates that they benefit from a free 30-day trial period for this premium offer, which ends on January 7, 2020. They will then have to subscribe to the subscription in order to continue to benefit from it.
