Premium Connectivity is a convenient service that gives Tesla owners access to a variety of features. It is currently available with a monthly subscription, but this may be changed in the future. Elon Musk said that providing the service in the form of an annual subscription is an interesting idea, which may hint that it could soon appear.
Connectivity is an important part of all Tesla cars, further enhancing the driving experience by providing access to features that require data usage, such as streaming music and media, live traffic visualization and more. All cars come with Standard Connectivity which provides access to most connectivity features over Wi-Fi only, in addition to basic maps, navigation, and music streaming over Bluetooth.
Premium Connectivity provides the ability to access all connectivity features over cellular, in addition to Wi-Fi, for the most intuitive and engaging ownership experience. The service includes Navigation, Live Traffic Visualization, Satellite-View Maps, Video Streaming, Caraoke, Music Streaming, and Internet Browser. At the moment, Premium Connectivity is available as a monthly subscription of $9.99, but this could soon be changed to a more attractive plan.
Tesla car owner @BLKMDL3/Twitter recently suggested to the CEO of the company Elon Musk the idea to upgrade Premium Connectivity. He explained that the possibility of buying the service for a year and at a better price would be a great addition. This proposal was highly appreciated by Musk and he wrote that it was a good idea. This hints that in the future the company may consider and implement such a payment option for the service.
