Tesla's Bold Move: Elon Musk Mandates FSD Demos for Every New Delivery in North America

So, get this: Elon Musk is making every single Tesla employee in North America play chauffeur for a minute. Why? He wants everyone who buys a new Tesla to try out that fancy "Full Self-Driving" mode – you know, the one that's still kinda controversial.

Okay, what's FSD again?

FSD stands for Full Self-Driving. It's basically Tesla's super-advanced cruise control on steroids. It's NOT fully self-driving (yet), but it does stuff like automatic steering, lane changes, and even handles traffic lights and stop signs. You still gotta keep your eyes on the road, but it does a lot of the work for you.

Back to the story...

Elon's email basically says "Load up the latest FSD, take them for a spin, blow their minds." Sure, it's gonna slow down deliveries, but Elon calls it a "hard requirement". Plus, rumor has it this whole FSD demo thing now also applies to people getting their Teslas back from the shop, not just new buys.

Elon's pretty fired up about it, saying "Almost no one actually realizes how well FSD works." And to really sell it, he announced on social media (he now owns his own called X, by the way) that anyone with a Tesla that can do FSD gets a free month-long trial. Smart move!

So, what's this really about?

Between the mandatory demos and the free trials, it seems like Elon's pushing FSD hard. It's either a genuine belief it'll convert tons of people to paying customers, or maybe he's trying to drum up good publicity. Critics have been on Tesla's case lately about FSD being, well, not ready for prime time.

Either way, buckle up...literally...because you might be getting a surprise demo on your next Tesla visit!
