Tesla takes back free unlimited supercharging, kind



Tesla is looking for some extra sales of its pre-hardware model S and X update.

Have you kicked yourself to wait too long to buy a Tesla and missing out on the entire Free Unlimited Supercharging thing? Well, according to a report by Electrek on Tuesday, you get another chance for it.

What is the catch? Well, Tesla takes back its free unlimited Supercharging campaign, but only for new model S and Model X cars in stock that are pre-hardware update. What does that mean? For the most part, it means no Model S with 370 miles of range or Model X with 325 miles of range. It also means you miss out on other smaller hardware changes such as 200 kW Supercharging and the new adaptive suspension ̵

1; oh, and the tidy power increases from the new engines.

Also, unlike other incarnations in the campaign, this version of Free Unlimited Supercharging is not transferable, meaning you can't use it as a sales feature when you go to send your model S or X down the road.

Tesla has also priced these new older spec models a lot lower than the updated ones, with a pre-update 2019 Model S 100D going for $ 77,900 before incentives and a post-update model in the same trim starting at $ 85,000. It is also not the company's so-called Full Self-Driving hardware.

So, is it worth buying the older model for free Supercharging?

Well, it all depends on how you use your car. If you – like most – charge the car at home overnight with a level 2 system, then no, it's not. If you regularly use Supercharger drives to keep peaked because you don't have reliable access to Level 2 charging, it may just be.

Tesla did not immediately respond to Roadshow's request for comment.
