    Tesla Premium Connectivity enables customers to access audio and video streaming services directly from the vehicle’s onboard displays without a mobile hotspot or a separate Wi-Fi connection. However, certain streaming services like Netflix may still require an independent subscription.

    With the expanded internet connectivity subscription also comes several exclusive features such as satellite-view maps and live traffic visualisation. 

    The Premium Connectivity is available for both Tesla models in Malaysia viz. Model 3 and Model Y on a free trial basis for the first 30 days upon delivery. 

    Those who don’t want the Premium Connectivity can enjoy the Standard Connectivity at no cost for the first eight years, which provides access to over-the-air updates, voice commands, and basic maps and navigation features.
