Tesla drops lifetime access to Standard Connectivity package

From last month all new Tesla vehicles ordered globally no longer come with lifetime access to the Standard Connectivity package. Instead, the Standard Connectivity package which includes satellite navigation, Bluetooth, playback via a USB drive, and FM radio will expire after eight years from the date of delivery, and become an optional extra.

A lifetime Standard Connectivity subscription is the latest feature to be cut from new Tesla vehicles after the mobile charging cable for connecting to home power sockets was removed from newly-placed orders earlier this month.

Tesla is not saying if basic functions such as Bluetooth and FM radio will be deleted once the free Standard Connectivity subscription ends after eight years. However, Tesla does say certain navigation functions will be removed.

Tesla's website says that access to some connectivity features, including those that use cellular data or third-party licenses, may be changed or removed. These Standard Connectivity features that may change currently include maps, navigation, voice commands and more,"

Tesla has not confirmed how much Standard Connectivity will cost once the eight-year included subscription expires though the upgraded Premium Connectivity pack, which adds live traffic, video streaming and other features, currently costs $9.99 a month.

New Tesla cars ordered last month will still carry a lifetime subscription to Standard Connectivity even if they have not been delivered.
