    Dear X


    Four years ago, Tesla introduced the Supercharger Network – the world’s fastest charging solution – to enable convenient long distance travel. Today, more than 4,600 Superchargers allow over 160,000 Tesla owners to drive all over the world. We recently announced a change to the economics of Supercharging – one that allows us to reinvest in the network, accelerate its growth and bring all owners, current and future, the best Supercharging experience.

    Due to exceptionally high demand at the end of the year, we've extended the order date by two weeks for customers who were unable to finalise their purchase by 31st December 2016. Any Tesla ordered by 15th January 2017 and built by 15th April 2017, will continue to benefit from free unlimited Supercharging.

    For the same reason and for simplicity, we've also pushed back the price increase originally due on 1st January to 15th January 2017, allowing more customers to take advantage of this opportunity. For Model S and Model X vehicles ordered after 15th January 2017, 400 kWh of free Supercharging credits (roughly 1,000 miles) will be included annually so that owners can continue to enjoy free Supercharging during travel.



    If you would like to learn more, to book a test drive or configure an order, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Team directly.



    Best Regards

    Posting this in the general section as it may spur on those interested in going from leaf or whatever to a model S. Seven days left!

    Quite what this will mean for those with model 3 pre orders i do not know.

    400kWh? So about £40 of electricity included with a £70,000+ car? Seems a bit tight. Even the likes of Vauxhall these days are happy to dispatch you from the dealer with a £500 fuel card...

    Model 3 owners will have to pay for Supercharging.

    As of yet, they haven't announced the charging structure £/kWh or £/min but they have said it will be marginal costing covering the cost of the electricity only so hopefully something like 10p/kWh.

    400kWh for me would get me about 1100 miles in the winter and more like 1400 in the summer and is per year as I understand it so that's ~1200 miles of long distance travel a year still covered.

    £500 worth of fuel at 40MPG would work out to about 3,600 miles worth.

    Unlimited use of the 22kWh chargers at the dealerships, just as Nissan are happy for Leaf drivers to use their Chademo chargers.

    Not sure how often an average driver would need to hit a supercharger anyway. I do mean 'need' not 'want' ...
