Official: No More Free Charging For Tesla’s New Customers

#Tesla announced today that all of its new customers, starting from January 1, 2017, will not get the offer of free unlimited use of its Supercharger network.

Instead, the electric car company will give new customers 400 kWh of free Supercharging credits that translates into roughly 1,000 miles worth of driving range on an annual basis.

“Beyond that, there will be a small fee to Supercharge which will be charged incrementally and cost less than the price of filling up a comparable gas car,” said the company in its statement. “All cars will continue to come standard with the onboard hardware required for Supercharging.”

The changes will apply to Teslas ordered from January 1 and will not impact cars ordered prior to this date as long as delivery is taken before April 1, 2017. Tesla says that they are changing their policy in order to reinvest in their Supercharger network and accelerate its growth, now that the Model 3 launch date approaches.

“We will release the details of the program later this year, and while prices may fluctuate over time and vary regionally based on the cost of electricity, our Supercharger Network will never be a profit center”, added Tesla in their statement.
