One of the biggest advantages of Tesla’s electric vehicles is that they provide you with free access to Tesla’s Supercharger network, which is a set of locations where you can currently charge your Tesla for free, in a reduced time.
Sadly, Tesla has announced that they will be ending this free program soon, revealing that they will be charging people to use Superchargers with any Tesla vehicle that has been purchased after January 1st, 2017.
Anyone who has already ordered a Tesla will also still qualify for unlimited, free charger as long as they take delivery before April 1st, 2017.
They did say that you will get some free access to the Superchargers, Tesla will be providing you with 400kWh of free credit every year, but every charge after that will carry an incremental “small fee”, which will likely depend on local electricity rates, so still cheaper than glass most likely.
Despite the change, Tesla doesn’t aim to make profit from the Superchargers.
Aside from that, we don’t know much about the change just yet, but they did say that they will unveil more details about the change later in 2016.
