Tesla has just announced that Tesla vehicles that meet hardware standards and are delivered on February 15, 2021 or earlier can experience EAP for free between February 16 and February 26. For those who place an order before February 26 and have their delivery time between February 16 and June 30, they can activate a 30-day free trial of EAP within two days after delivery.
Currently, EAP and FSD functions in China are the same, with four additional features compared to the basic version of AP, including automatic lane-changing with turn signal, NoA high-speed navigation-assisted driving, automatic parking, and smart summon. The starting time for the first wave of free experience on February 16 also allows some Tesla users driving long distances during the Spring Festival to experience NoA and turn signal lane change functions during their return trip, with the latter being excellent in terms of experience.
During the Q4 2020 earnings call, Musk stated that the FSD selection rate in the Chinese market is around 1-2%, much lower than other markets. This situation makes him feel that FSD still needs to be improved. The FSD Beta with street driving capability may be launched in China at the end of this year, and Musk believes that the more advanced and better-experienced FSD at that time will persuade domestic consumers to pay for it.
