Tesla To Charge For Supercharging On New Cars

If you buy a Tesla after January 1, 2017, you will now be charged a small fee to use superchargers after your car has exceeded one thousand miles. No word on how much this "fee" will be but the company says it will be less than the price of filling up a comparable gas car. Tesla owners that bought their cars before the January 1. 2017 deadline will still be able to use the Superchargers for free.

For Teslas ordered after January 1, 2017, 400 kWh of free Supercharging credits (roughly 1,000 miles) will be included annually so that all owners can continue to enjoy free Supercharging during travel. Beyond that, there will be a small fee to Supercharge which will be charged incrementally and cost less than the price of filling up a comparable gas car. All cars will continue to come standard with the onboard hardware required for Supercharging.
