Tesla will honour Full Self-Driving transfers for late deliveries

Tesla has made a last minute change to the requirements around their Full Self-Driving (FSD) transfer program that will allow customers to take delivery of a newly purchased car past the original deadline of September 30, 2023, while still being able to transfer FSD.

Elon Musk first agreed to allow customers to transfer their FSD package to a new car at the company’s Q2 2023 earnings call. However with the one-time offer came a number of requirements, the most stringent of which was that you must take delivery of your new Tesla before the end of Q3, September 30, 2023. This particular requirement garnered a lot of negative feedback as delivery logistics are out of the customer’s control, and while you might have completed your order well before the deadline, there could always be a delay in your delivery that would cause you to miss out on the offer.

Tesla has heard the feedback, and now removed that requirement from the program, according to Omar (@WholeMarsBlog). However, we have learned from an independent source there are still a few other requirements that have been added and must be completed by that date.

According to details of the new requirements obtained by Drive Tesla, customers must still place their order before September 30, 2023. To still be eligible to transfer your FSD package to your new car, you must also complete all the pre-delivery tasks in your account, including selecting the option to say you will be transferring FSD, and complete your credit check (if applicable) by that date. Tesla refers to this as the customer taking “good faith” steps to complete their delivery in time.

Additionally, if you order a custom configuration, and there is a vehicle with the same configuration available in existing inventory that is ready to be delivered, you must accept delivery of the inventory vehicle.

While this is good news for some, there are others that will be disappointed in the last minute change. We have heard from several customers who have either cancelled their order entirely due to a late estimated delivery date, or had to change their order to a more expensive configuration to ensure they received their vehicle before the end of the quarter.

With this last minute change, will you be taking advantage of this offer now? Let us know in the comments below.
