Tesla Insurance is a competitively priced insurance product that offers Tesla owners a new option.
Tesla has a unique understanding of its vehicles, technology, safety features and repair costs, which help eliminate some fees associated with traditional insurance carriers. Tesla Insurance provides a convenient monthly payment and the ability to manage claims and coverage directly through the Tesla app.
It also puts you in control, since your insurance premium is in part based on your driving habits.
The service is currently only available in select U.S. states, but it continues to expand to additional states. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk says it will also expand to Canada in the future.
Tesla Insurance is currently available to Tesla owners in the following states:
New and current Tesla owners can purchase an insurance policy in the Tesla app by tapping the profile icon located in the top-right corner and selecting ‘Get Tesla Insurance.’
If you’ve recently placed an order for a Tesla, you will need to wait until a VIN is assigned before ordering Tesla Insurance.
Tesla Insurance will not only cover Tesla vehicles but also any other vehicles you may own.
You can add additional vehicles when submitting the policy.
However, Tesla Insurance is currently limited to vehicles and Tesla does not offer home insurance or other types of insurance policies.
With Tesla Insurance you can view documents, billing, payment details and make claims all from the Tesla app.
Like other insurance companies, there are a variety of plans with varying levels of coverage depending on your needs.
Tesla collects data from the vehicle that helps assess how the vehicle is being driven.
Unlike other insurance products, Tesla does not require an additional device to be installed in the vehicle. Instead, Tesla uses features already included to determine how often the vehicle is driven, and how often the driver follows too closely or stops harshly.
This data is then used to help determine the driver’s insurance premium.
The insurance premium also factors in the vehicle model, the insuree’s location, and the distance the vehicle is driven.
Tesla Insurance users make monthly payments based on their driving behavior rather than factors typically used by other insurance providers, such as credit, age, gender, claim history and driving records.
Every insurer has different factors to determine their costs and their customers’ likelihood of getting into an accident. While Tesla Insurance could save you money, it could also cost more than alternatives available in your state.
According to Tesla, “An average driver could save between 20% to 40% and the safest drivers could save between 30% to 60%.”
Big reason to own a Tesla in the states where they offer insurance. next month insurance will be $60/month, down from 88 because of a 98 safety score maintained. Best car ever @elonmusk pic.twitter.com/fROEsx3Wfa
We’ve seen scenarios where Tesla Insurance saves someone hundreds of dollars a month, but we’ve also seen it cost significantly more than its competitors.
There are many factors that determine your insurance premium. If you’re new to Tesla or haven’t shopped around in a few years, we recommend getting a free quote from Tesla to see whether Tesla Insurance would save you money.

The moment many Tesla owners have waited for has arrived: Full Self-Driving Beta is now available to anyone in North America who has requested it, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Musk took to his newly acquired social media platform Twitter to announce the news.
“Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta is now available to anyone in North America who requests it from the car screen, assuming you have bought this option,” writes Musk. “Congrats to [the] Tesla Autopilot/AI team on achieving a major milestone!”
This historic moment comes just days after Tesla began rolling out its latest version of FSD Beta, version 10.69.3.1, which is version 2022.36.20. It includes feature updates like a revamped Energy App, alternate routes, blind spot camera location, and more.
Now, this version is going wide to “anyone in North America who requests it.”
To receive FSD Beta you’ll just need to request it in your vehicle under Controls > Autopilot. There is no longer a minimum safety score to achieve and everyone should receive the beta shortly after requesting it, as long as you’ve bought or subscribed to FSD Beta in the U.S. or Canada.
There are a few requirements for you to receive Tesla’s FSD Beta. Your vehicle will need to have Tesla’s FSD computer, known as hardware 3.0 or above. It also currently requires your vehicle to be on a 2022.36 update or below.
If your vehicle is on one of the 2022.40 updates, then you’ll need to wait until the next beta update since the current beta (v10.69.3.1) is based on 2022.36 and Tesla doesn’t normally allow vehicles to roll back to a previous version.
Some Model S and Model X vehicles may require a camera upgrade before being eligible for FSD Beta.
Tesla’s next FSD Beta, v11, which is still being tested internally may also be released to some external testers starting today. A few days ago Musk confirmed on Twitter that version 11 would be widened “before Thanksgiving.” FSD Beta v11 includes a unified tech stack for city and highway Autopilot use and is expected to go to a wide release sometime next month.
When it comes to FSD Beta updates, Tesla starts distributing to employees first for testing and going wider as they collect data and fix bugs. Then, based on a number of factors, Tesla broadens up distribution to more owners. However, this may soon change when FSD Beta gets incorporated into all Tesla software builds. This may happen with FSD Beta v11.
For owners new to FSD Beta, it’s surely a day a lot of us have been waiting for and a monumental moment for Tesla. However, it doesn’t stop there, it looks like we’ll soon all have access to the next big update, FSD Beta v11.

As Tesla continues to send out the latest FSD Beta, 10.69.3.1, the next generation of Tesla’s FSD computer will be using chips manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC). Although you may be familiar with this company, there may be a product in your hand now that uses its technology. Apple is a significant customer of TSMC.
Tesla is reportedly dropping Samsung to go with TSMC for the next generation of the Full Self Driving computer. The current computer, Hardware 3, is already a major force. But there are reports that Tesla is preparing a Hardware 4 computer. It’s believed to be about three times faster than the current computer.
These TSMC chips are considered the most sophisticated available at 4-nanometer and 5-nanometer processes. They have increased speed and reduced power consumption compared to the previous 7-nanometer process.
A report published by the Taiwan Economic Daily and China’s IT House states (translation provided by Electrek): TSMC is receiving orders for vehicles, and it is reported that it has replaced Samsung and won a large order for Tesla’s new generation of fully automatic driver assistance (FSD) chips, which will be produced at 4/5 nanometers. Tesla is expected to become one of TSMC’s top seven customers next year. It is the first time that TSMC’s main customer has a pure electric car factory, which will help resist the impact of consumer electronics boom adjustments.
While TSMC, one of the largest semiconductor companies in the world, is no stranger to the high demand and popular products, this would be the first time it is supplying to an electric vehicle company. Samsung may have lost the chip deal, but it will still be a big part of Tesla’s future. In addition, Samsung is producing the advanced cameras that Tesla requires now that FSD relies on Vision only for its Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).
Tesla used Nvidia hardware before switching to the Samsung chip in 2019. The launch of hardware 3.0 increased the frames processed by 21 times. But Elon Musk has stated a new chip has been in the works for years. FSD Version 11 is right around the corner, and it includes a single technology stack to support city and highway driving. So it seems the next big advance will be in the hardware.
Tesla’s Cybertruck is expected to be the first vehicle with Tesla’s latest FSD hardware, which will include higher-resolution cameras and a more powerful FSD computer.
Tesla revealed hardware 3.0 and its capabilities during its Autonomy day in 2019. Tesla may hold another event next year to show off the latest hardware.
