Tesla China is bringing in 2021 with a bang. Last night the automaker updated its website in China to announce deliveries of the Model Y beginning this month, and with it a number of new features for the electric SUV.
They also made some changes to the Model 3 by discontinuing the Long Range variant and introducing the Performance Model 3 with Zero-G performance wheels.
If that wasn’t enough, Tesla is now offering a number of big incentives to get current owners to trade-in their Model 3, Model S, or Model X.
The biggest offer relates to Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) package. If the Tesla being traded in is already equipped with either Enhanced Autopilot (EAP) or FSD, you can buy FSD on the new car for 50% off.
For a long time owners have been asking for the option to transfer FSD to new purchases. Earlier this year Musk addressed the concern during the Q3 2020 earnings call, but he did not commit to giving that option to current owners.
This is definitely a step in the right direction, and hopefully a similar offer appears in other markets soon.
Other incentives in the new trade-in offer include:
- 15,000km free Supercharger credits
- Free Tesla High Power Wall Connector (HPWC)
- 20% off 2-year extended warranty
