Free unlimited supercharging is back when you purchase a new Tesla Model S or Model X. When purchasing a new version of either model, buyers will receive the credits. The limited offer is being utilized to help drive sales. Current Tesla owners will still have to pay the standard rate at 28 cents per kWh or 13 to 26 cents per minute for charging.
In perfect Tesla fashion, the company tweeted the announcement. The company previously offered unlimited charging a few years ago, but eventually reduced the offer to 400 kilowatts-hours of electricity credits each year for Tesla Model S and Model X orders. The new offer will apply to orders placed starting August 3. There is no information on how long the free unlimited Supercharging credits will be offered. Tesla is known for changing offers and policies frequently.
With recent sales being stagnant for Tesla, the strategy is to create some buzz. Tesla reported last month that the two models have 18 days worth of unsold inventory. For now, all Model S and Model X trim levels include free unlimited Supercharging. The Model 3 is excluded from this offer. Tesla claims to have over 1600 Supercharging stations globally for customers to utilize.
