Today I noticed that the design studio was changed to get a flag in the right corner on the first page (but only for model 3) . When you click on the flag, you will see a list of 21 countries / language combinations shown below.
Now, when I click on one of these countries, it brings up a screen asking if you have a reservation or not, telling you that you can get free Supercharging with a referral code.
Then it shows the options available in that country.
As we have previously reported, only long-range battery and all-wheel drive are available in European countries – when Tesla tries to maximize its margins. What's new is that it lets you order from a referral link to get 6 months of free Supercharging (maybe 9 months since no European customer has been able to test vehicle cars). This may be more valuable in Europe than the US, as electricity costs are high in some countries. But you can hurry, because Elon Musk has announced that the referral program ends well this time on February 1, 19459031.
My referral link is https://ts.la/paul92237, but if any other owner has helped you more than me, please use the link instead. They can get a premium for it. I have been fortunate to receive 75 referrals from my readers and hope to receive a few more so that I can sell a Roadster to pay the taxes due to the two cars. Taxes are expected to be close to $ 125,000 per car.
If you have already configured model 3, you can still add the code by sending an email to buildmy3EMEA@tesla.com with the word "Referral" in the subject line.
In your body email, include name and contact information, reservation number (starting with RN) and referral code you want to use.
I find it strange that Tesla would make it easier to use referral codes just before the program ends well. I think this just happened as part of a redesign of the design studio. The developers who updated the design studio might not know the referral codes were over.
I also find it strange that it does not include any countries in Asia. I have several news about Asia coming out in a forthcoming article.
So, if you were waiting for a good reason to set up a model 3 in Europe, this is the clock! Not only can you get free Supercharging, but you now have it as part of your order at the beginning and you don't have to wait for your order to be updated manually.
