I test drove a 2017 (with autopilot 2.0 hardware) model S 75d yesterday. It was great fun. But it didn't have autopilot.

How much does it cost to upgrade this to standard auto pilot, or enhanced autopilot or fsd?

It depends on what it has, and when it was purchased.

On my 2017 Tesla the upgrade price would change regularly...

It says autopilot safety features included. I have attached a screen image I took when I test drove it with the vin blacked out (not sure if that is important or not).

Is it a a private sale?

If the owner logs onto their MyTesla account it should give them the upgrade price.

Aren't AP safety features stuff like AEB and lane departure avoidance? I don't think that means ACC and Autosteer.

This one is at a dealership... But think they are keen to sell this year so could be a decent price... But I have seen quite a few advertised with autopilot safety features. This car definitely did not have autopilot in any capacity aside from using the software for safety. But I would not buy a Tesla without autopilot... But I don't know if that is an option. Maybe I have to shell out £7000 for FSD, in which case the purchase is not an option.

Probably easier to find a car with either EAP or FSD already bought.
Definitely simpler and easier... But this car is local to me, and may be a decent price and the majority I am seeing in the £30-40,000 price range of 2017 model S do not have autopilot. So I was wondering if it was still available at a reasonable price as an addition. The 2017 Teslas did not come with free autopilot but I think you could buy autopilot for £1.5-2k or enhance autopilot for £2-4k more.

Quite a few 2017/8 Model S (like mine) for sale without AP. It became bundled in early 2019 on MS.

The answer however is:

When they were new, you could only buy Enhanced Autopilot which was £5000 and widely reported to be not as good as AP1 so people held off buying it!

To add it now is £2900 or FSD at £6800. At one stage it was £1900, so expect Elon to do the odd deal on it.

P.s. - if you're in the market, mine is for sale and it is utterly mint.

I think a lot of cars for sale are by dealers who don't know what the car has, I think a lot will have EAP and not mention it. There's an easy way to tell :


EAP is to all intents and purposes the same set of features as FSD has today - its just the hardware won't be upgraded unless you pay for FSD and so may not be quite so slick

You can't now upgrade to EAP, they ran a short term offer last quarter but that ended. I presume you may be able to buy basic AP but I would check what the car has first and then ask Tesla the upgrade options and prices, giving them details of the car..

While I take your point about the car you are looking at is local, you will probably find a car with the features for less than a car without plus the upgrade cost. For example, on a Model 3, FSD is commanding about 2-3k premium, but to buy the FSD option would cost you about 8k.
