BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Tesla has started to indicate that it is going to expand its software offering, including a subscription to its full self-driving package, and analysts are starting to consider this new revenue stream as a massive opportunity.

Tesla also started selling software features through its mobile app.

“I think we will offer Full Self-Driving as a subscription service, but it will be probably towards the end of this year.”
Morgan Stanley has been exploring the impact of the Full Self-Driving Package on Tesla’s business model in a note to clients last week.
The firm wrote:
“Tesla is the only company today, to the best of our knowledge, that is fully monetizing its autonomous driving assets at scale. This can potentially provide a …
