Tesla FSD transfers return until August 31, 2024

Tesla is once again allowing owners to transfer their Full Self-Driving (FSD) software package when buying a new vehicle. This is the fourth time the deal has been made available, but it may be the last, according to CEO Elon Musk, who agreed to allow it for “one more quarter” earlier this month.

Tesla first offered FSD transfers last year, with Musk finally agreeing to allow it after being asked countless times over the years by frustrated owners, many who have purchased FSD more than once while the company has yet to deliver on the promise of full autonomy.

At the time Musk encouraged owners to take advantage of the offer because it was a “one-time amnesty.” Despite this, FSD transfers have been offered two more times since then, most recently earlier this year when it was abruptly pulled just 8 days after launching.

Now FSD transfers are back for a fourth, and if we are to believe Musk, final time. The latest offer is valid on purchases of new Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y vehicles from now until August 31, 2024. (h/t: @SawyerMerritt)

As with previous FSD transfer periods, the deadline date is when delivery is taken, however there will be some leeway on the deadline if the delivery date slips due to factors outside of the owner’s control. Additionally, owners do not need to trade-in their FSD-equipped vehicle, as Tesla will simply remove it and add it to the new vehicle.

As you might have noticed, despite Musk saying at the Annual Shareholder Meeting a few weeks that it would be available for “one more quarter,” the offer ends on August 31, 2024, a full month before the end of Q3. With the offer launching yesterday, June 24, that means it is technically only available for a little over two months, and not three months as promised.

Whether this is actually the final time FSD transfers will be offered remains to be seen. Going from experience the answer should be that it will return at some point in the future, but we never really know for sure.

Currently, FSD costs $11,000 in Canada and $8,000 in the US.
