Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, announced today at the company’s shareholder meeting that Tesla will allow owners to transfer their Full Self-Driving (FSD) capability to new vehicles for “one more quarter.” This decision comes after repeated claims from Tesla that such transfers would not be allowed.

Tesla has been selling its FSD system for several years, with many early owners going through multiple vehicles without the software being delivered in its full working state. While these owners can use Tesla’s FSD Beta, now called FSD Supervised, no Tesla owner has yet been able to use a full self-driving system that allows the car to drive itself with no human intervention.

The announcement follows a pattern of Tesla initially allowing FSD transfers for short periods, only to later rescind the offer. Last year, Tesla started allowing FSD transfers but limited it to two months, after which it would no longer be permitted. This year, Tesla brought back the FSD transfer for new orders until the end of Q1, and then extended it for another quarter after being asked at the shareholder meeting.

During the meeting, Musk initially hesitated, citing complexities within Tesla’s sales framework. However, after some discussion, he agreed to extend the FSD transfer for “one more quarter.” Details about how this program will work are yet to be released, as the announcement was made just at the conclusion of the shareholder meeting.

Tesla owners who have been advocating for the ability to transfer FSD to new vehicles have welcomed this decision, which will allow them to retain eventual access to the software they paid for but were never delivered.
