Tesla FSD and unlimited Supercharging transfers: everything you need to know

Tesla brought back two promotions over the weekend, including the ability to transfer your Full Self-Driving (FSD) Capability and your free unlimited Supercharging to a new Tesla. There have been a lot of questions around these two promotions, but here’s everything you need to know about them, including how they work with discounts and other promotions.

FSD Transfer

Definitely the bigger surprise was the return of FSD transfers. This was available for a limited time period last year, but Elon Musk said it would be a one-time offer, leading to many customers transferring their FSD to a new Model 3 before the debut of the upgraded version, which happened just a few months later.

This time around the deal is essentially the same as it was last year. Despite initially only being available in the US, the offer has been extended to Canada and Mexico as well. You can transfer your FSD to a new Model S, Model 3, Model X, or Model Y, but you must take delivery before March 31, 2024. Since delivery timelines are out of the customer’s control, Tesla did eventually agree to honour the transfer on late deliveries during the last round, but there has been no confirmation this will happen again, so be aware.

Also just like last time, you don’t have to trade-in your existing Tesla with FSD. The software will be removed upon delivery of your new vehicle, after which you can keep the old Tesla or sell it privately.

When buying your new Tesla, there is nothing special you need to do or select during the ordering process. The option to transfer your FSD will appear afterwards as one of the pre-delivery tasks.

Also be aware that you will not be able to transfer FSD again, so if you took advantage of the offer last year, you unfortunately won’t be able to do it again this time.

You can find the full terms and conditions of the FSD transfer at the bottom of this article.

Summary

  • available on Model S/3/X/Y purchases
  • available in US, Canada, Mexico
  • must take delivery before March 31, 2024
  • no trade-in required

Free Unlimited Supercharging Transfer

This isn’t the first time Tesla has allowed customers to transfer their free unlimited Supercharging to a new Tesla, which is only found on the legacy Model S and Model X, and a small number of Model 3 Performance cars that were delivered in 2018.

If you are one of these lucky owners, you can now upgrade to a new Tesla without losing this perk. The terms and conditions are pretty much exactly the same as the FSD transfer above. After initially not including it, the new Model 3 is included in this promotion, and it is also available to Canadian buyers.

Summary

  • available on Model S/3/X/Y purchases
  • available in US, Canada, Mexico
  • must take delivery before March 31, 2024
  • no trade-in required

Other Discounts and Promotions

Making these deals more attractive than when they were previously offered is the ability to “stack” them with other discounts and promotions.

The Cybertruck reservation holder discount of C$1,300/US$1,000 can be applied to your order. You can also transfer FSD or free Supercharging to a new car (not demo) purchased through existing inventory, which are frequently discounted by several thousand of dollars compared to a custom build. There is also the added benefit of cars from existing inventory being available for near immediate delivery, so there is no concern about missing the March 31 deadline.

When it is all said and done, for existing owners with either FSD or unlimited Supercharging, there really hasn’t been a better time to upgrade. That’s especially the case for Canadians wanting looking to get into a Model Y, as there was a $4,000 price cut last week, making it eligible for up to $12,000 in rebates if you live in Quebec.

Will you be taking advantage of either of these offers? Let us know in the comments below.
