Tesla closes FSD Capability loophole that shortened delivery wait times for free

Tesla made a change to their website earlier this month that allowed customers to significantly shorten their delivery wait time by adding Full Self-Driving Capability to their order.

In the case of a Model Y, you could get your car seven months quicker than if you ordered without FSD Capability.

Since FSD Capability is just a piece of software as opposed to a physical upgrade on the car, this led to a number of customers adding the $10,600 CAD ($12,000 USD) option, with the plan to remove it just prior to delivery.

Tesla appears to have caught onto this and have closed the loophole.

While you can still remove FSD Capability from an existing order, new wording has been added to accounts to say that removing it will delay your delivery.

Many customers will likely be upset by this change, but it seems like a reasonable way to level the playing field with those who either can’t afford or don’t want to spend the extra money on FSD Capability for a faster delivery.

What do you think of this change, is it fair? Let us know in the comments below.
