Tesla is reportedly looking to boost end-of-quarter sales by offering three months of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) package for free. This isn’t the first time Tesla has offered various incentives to boost quarterly earnings.
For Q4 2020, Tesla wants to deliver a record number of cars, in a bid to achieve a total of 500,000 units sold for the entire year. According to Electrek, that means delivering over 181,000 vehicles this quarter alone.
In the past, perks offered by the U.S. carmaker have included things like free Supercharging. However, with this most recent incentive, Tesla is offering something that’s never been done before: three months of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) package for free to buyers who can take delivery by the end of this year.

The package contains the following features: Navigate on Autopilot, Auto Lane Change, Autopark, Summon, as well as Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control.
The first one means that your Tesla can drive itself from highway on-ramp to off-ramp, while also overtaking slower vehicles. Auto Lane Change does what the name implies and allows your car to change lanes automatically, while Autopark works with both parallel and perpendicular spaces.
As for Summon and Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control, the former means that your parked car will come to you from anywhere in a parking lot, with the latter offering assisted stops at traffic controlled intersections.
Otherwise, the cost of this package is $10,000 and in the future, Tesla will use it to enable true full-self driving capability via software upgrades.
