Tesla gave its customers the bad news a few months ago when they announced that new customers of all Tesla model cars now have to pay for charging their Tesla’s at supercharging stations which were free till now. The free use of Tesla’s supercharger stations was a big bonus for the customers and also helped a lot in sales.
Free charging support was supposed to be ended at the beginning of the year but now it seems like Tesla’s is giving some reprieve, new Tesla customers still have two weeks to buy a Tesla’s which will give them unlimited free access to the supercharging network.
Tesla’s bought before January 15th will be able top-off for free at any Supercharger station, same as always but any Tesla’s bought after January 15th will be limited to just 400 kWh of free energy per year. According to Tesla, this will be enough to drive about 1000 miles.
After limitation how much the charging will cost or the additional fee is not yet announced, but Elon Musk’s company said it won’t cost a lot for the customers, Tesla claiming that it will cost “less than the price of filling up a comparable gas car.” It doesn’t sound bad but who doesn’t like free stuff so if you wanted to buy a Tesla then now is the time
