Get Free Lifetime Supercharging on Tesla Model 3 Performance, Model S and Model X - Here's How

Until September 16, you can get free access to Tesla's high-speed Supercharger network with the purchase of any Model S or Model X, or the Performance version of the Model 3.
If you're considering buying a Tesla, you should probably act sooner rather than later. One of the perks of buying a Model S, Model X or a Model 3 Performance version is free lifetime access to Tesla's Supercharging network. This allows you to fill up or top off your battery at a Tesla Supercharger for free when you take that Tesla on the road. To get this perk, you need to order your car using a referral link from a current Tesla owner. Also, Tesla recently announced that this offer expires on September 16, 2018. Any eligible Tesla car ordered via a referral link after that date will only get the first year of Supercharging for free and will need to pay per use after that.

Tesla's High Speed DC Supercharging network is currently unique in that it enables convenient long distance travel in a purely electric vehicle through most parts of the world. At a Tesla Supercharger, you can get about 60% of your range back in less than half an hour or a full charge in about 60-70 minutes. Actual charging speeds vary depending on which car you have, which battery option you purchased, how full or depleted your battery is when you start charging and whether the Supercharger station is in heavy use at the time. But with Superchargers, you can drive a Tesla nearly unlimited distances with a fairly minor inconvenience in time spent charging. And with this offer, you can do that with no charge for the electricity used.

First announced in 2012 with just a handful of Supercharger stations in California, the Tesla Supercharger network has grown to over 1,300 Supercharger stations worldwide with close to 11,000 charging bays. Most Superchargers are conveniently located on or near major interstates and other popular corridors for long distance travel. It's important to note that Superchargers are intended for long distance travel only, not as a replacement for home charging. For regular daily or weekly charging, Tesla recommends installation of a 220 or 240 Volt jack or a dedicated EV charging station at home. This way you can just plug in when you get home and wake up to a "full tank" every morning. You can even charge your Tesla from a standard 110V/120V electrical outlet but that's not recommended as it will take a really long time for a full charge (measured in days, not hours).

Also, if you're hoping to run your Lyft or Uber business on Tesla's dime, you should know that Tesla's current ownership agreement specifically prohibits free Supercharging for commercial purposes.
As of August 15, 2018, there are over 1,300 Supercharger stations worldwide. For an up-to-date list and interactive map, see tesla.com/supercharger.
Another good reason not to wait on ordering that Tesla (at least if you're a United States resident) is that the full federal EV tax credit of $7,500 will only be available on Tesla vehicles until the end of 2018. And you do have to pay for and take delivery of the car in 2018 in order to qualify for the full credit. In 2019, the tax credit reduces to 50% ($3,750) for the first half of the year and reduces again to 25% ($1,750) for the second half of the year. Orders for any of the eligible models placed by September 16 are very likely to be delivered well before the end of the year.

It's important to note that although all versions of the Model S and Model X are eligible for the free Supercharging offer, only the high-end Performance variant of the Model 3 is eligible. The base price of the Model 3 Performance version is $64,000. It includes dual front and rear motors, the extended range battery, with over 310 miles of range, a blazingly fast 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds, a premium sound system and several other premium upgrades.

Here's How to Lock In Free Lifetime Supercharging for Your Tesla:

  • Use a referral link from an existing Tesla owner like this one: My Tesla Referral Link
  • Configure and order an eligible Tesla vehicle online (Model S, Model X and Model 3 Performance are all currently eligible)
  • Complete your configuration and place your order by September 16, 2018
  • Wait impatiently for your delivery day
We've had our Model 3 for a few months now, and I must say that it is an absolute joy to drive. You can read more about our experience on Clean Technica:

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
