Tesla to bring back FSD transfers for “one more quarter” – Elon Musk

Tesla will once again allow owners to transfer their Full Self-Driving (FSD) software to a new vehicle, but it will only be for “one more quarter,” according to CEO Elon Musk.

Since Tesla began offering their Full Self-Driving (FSD) Capability option, the software has been tied to the original vehicle it was purchased for. This policy often deterred Tesla owners from upgrading to new cars, as they didn’t want to forfeit the costly software, which currently costs $11,000 in Canada and $8,000 in the US, after some recent price cuts.

Despite persistent requests from owners to allow FSD transfers to new vehicles, Tesla consistently declined. However, Musk eventually conceded, when the first FSD transfer opportunity was offered in Q3 2023. Although it was promoted as a single, unique chance available for only a single quarter, the offer has been made available several times more since then.

The most recent FSD transfer window was earlier this year, but lasted just 8 days. Now it will be returning again, but only for one more quarter.

During yesterday’s Shareholder Meeting, the topic of FSD transfers came up yet again, with a shareholder asking why it hadn’t become permanent. After saying it was tough because it added complexity to the sales process and that Tesla had to “earn revenue somehow,” Musk finally agreed to allow FSD transfers for “one more quarter.”

Since Musk agreed to the deal on stage at the Shareholder Meeting, we don’t know when the transfer window will start. Given that we are just over two weeks away from the beginning of Q3, hopefully Tesla will work out the details and allow FSD transfers for Q3 orders, starting July 1, 2024.
