New Tesla Model S and X buyers will get unlimited free Supercharging
Since the introduction of the Model 3 and the announcement of the Model Y, Tesla’s more expensive models seem to have suffered, especially the Model S.
In fact, apart from slightly more spacious cabins, the Model S and X don’t seem to have many benefits over the newer, cheaper options.
In order to restore the premium models’ sales figures, Tesla has announced that both the Model S and X will come with unlimited use of the company’s supercharging service for free. Tesla Superchargers are special charging stations that allow users to charge their electric cars quicker than with regular sockets.
The pioneering company decided to make the announcement in the only way its CEO knows how: on Twitter:.
In the past, Tesla offered its Supercharger service for free with its premium cars, but the offer was soon dropped after being briefly given in exchange for referrals. It has also been reintroduced as a limited time offer as an incentive to buy a car, but these never lasted long. However, if the company’s Twitter account is to be believed, this time it’s unlimited.
On average, it costs $13 to fully charge a Tesla car with a Supercharger making the offer quite interesting considering the number of times one will charge their car in its lifetime. However, with a price difference of over $40,000 between the Model 3 and Model S, it remains to be seen if this offer is enough to convince people into getting the more expensive car.
