You’ll get a jolt outta this deal.

In a move that’s probably going to make some recent buyers grumble, Tesla is once again giving “free unlimited” supercharging with Model X or Model S purchases.

The move was announced on Twitter, giving more incentive to those who don’t purchase the lower-priced Model 3 range.

New buyers of a Tesla Model X or Model S will get free supercharging

When it released in the second half of 2017, the Model 3 was a runaway success. So much so, that it appears to be taking sales away from the higher-priced Model X and Model S ranges. The reintroduction of free, unlimited supercharging for the higher-priced models seems to be a way to rectify the sales slump.

Tesla has a long history of similar bonuses for purchases or referrals:

  • Tesla previously had a free, unlimited supercharging program which ended January 1, 2017. Buyers after that received 1,000 supercharger miles per year
  • At that time, it introduced referrals for unlimited supercharger use program, which was limited to certain models, and ended in September 2018
  • It was replaced by a referrals bonus program with prizes such as the ride-on Tesla Model S for Kids, or secret prizes such as an invitation to come watch a SpaceX launch
  • The current referrals program is for supercharger miles

Tesla bringing unlimited supercharging back to its higher-end models is not only a sales hook – it’s a nice way to differentiate the much more expensive vehicles from the Model 3.
