By CCN Markets: Just when it seemed like things are getting back on track for Elon Musk and Tesla, the South African billionaire has shot himself in the foot once again with yet another unfulfilled promise. Musk was supposed to hike the price of Tesla’s full self-driving (FSD) package from August 16 with a James Bond-like upgrade to summon your car, but it seems like he has missed the deadline.
Price increase for Tesla FSD postponed until version 10 with smart summon is in wide release, which is about 4 to 8 weeks away, depending on how early access goes

The latest in a line of Tesla’s missed deadlines
Elon Musk has a history of making big promises but ultimately failing to fulfill them. Had Musk lived up to his words, a self-driving Tesla would have hit the streets back in 2017. But that deadline came and went, and it looks like the Tesla CEO is having a difficult time adding one of the most basic features that a self-driving car can be expected to have.
Musk had initially promised to deliver the ‘smart summon’ feature in August, along with an increase in price of the FSD suite.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that the electric car maker’s Full Self-Driving suite, which currently includes features such as Navigate on Autopilot, Auto Lane Change, Autopark, and Summon, will increase in price by $1,000 on August 16 https://t.co/nggSMEkJxR pic.twitter.com/mPye27xY8f
