Tesla expands flexibility in Australia: FSD and Free Unlimited Supercharging Transfers Now Available

    Tesla is shaking things up for Australian owners with a double dose of exciting news. Not only can owners now transfer their Full Self-Driving (FSD) software to a new vehicle, but the company is also opening up the possibility to transfer free unlimited supercharging, both of which were previously tied to the vehicle.

    This unprecedented move provides even greater flexibility and value for those invested in the Tesla ecosystem. In 2023, Elon Musk announced a 1-time amnesty for FSD transfer, but it now seems the company has had a change of heart and is using this as a technique to drive upgrade sales.

    Having invested as much as $10,1000 into the FSD Software upgrade, it does create a barrier for potential Tesla owners who are considering upgrading to their next Tesla, so thankfully there is an option to do that now, without penalty, however it is for a limited time.

    How Do Transfers Work?

    Tesla owner Alby Sun shared the news today on the Tesla Owner’s Club of Australia Facebook group, complete with confirmation screenshots of him successfully doing both transfers.

    The details of Tesla’s transfer programs are below:

    • Eligibility: If you take delivery of your new Tesla vehicle between February 19th, 2024, and March 31st, 2024, and had FSD capability and/or free unlimited supercharging on your previous Tesla, you’re eligible for the transfer.
    • The Process: After taking delivery, both features will be moved to your new vehicle within 24 hours. Removal from the old car may take up to 48 hours.
    • Limitations: Each feature can only be transferred once within the promotional period and will be locked to the new vehicle thereafter.

    The Benefits Are Doubled

    With both FSD and supercharging transfers now available, Australian Tesla owners reap a host of advantages:

    • Massive Cost Savings: No need to repurchase expensive features or forgo the convenience of free supercharging when upgrading vehicles.
    • Investment Protection: Your initial investment in both FSD and unlimited supercharging are safeguarded, ensuring their value holds over time.
    • More Flexibility: Provides freedom and choice when deciding on future Tesla upgrades.

    Looking to the Future

    While it’s uncertain if Tesla will make these transfer programs permanent, the enthusiastic reception from the Australian Tesla community is a strong signal they should. This change, combined with evolving trends in software ownership, makes a compelling case for transfers to become a standard option.

    Tesla’s decision to offer both FSD and free unlimited supercharging transfers is a major win for Australian customers.
