Supercharging was free for life, then it wasn’t, then it was, now it is again, but just for a limited time.
Tesla’s Supercharging policies have been all over the map, making it difficult to follow the current practice that’s in place today.
Case in point. Just one month or so ago, Tesla made unlimited Supercharging free for current owners after previously having set limits and associated fees on those same owners for use of the high-power charging system.
That’s after several free, not free changes and deadline extensions in the past.
Confusing? Absolutely. Well, prepare to be confused once again. Remember Tesla’s recent “free for life” Supercharging announcement? It read:
“You have free, unlimited Supercharging, including your current Tesla and any new Model S or Model X you purchase. If you choose to sell your current Tesla, free Supercharging will not transfer to the next owner. Also, up to five friends you refer will also receive free Supercharging. Any Supercharging payments made have been automatically refunded. Read our Supercharging terms.”

But now it’s been changed slightly to include a deadline for purchase. It now reads:
“You have free, unlimited Supercharging for your current Tesla vehicle as well as any new Model S or Model X purchased before December 31, 2017. If you choose to sell your current Tesla, free Supercharging will transfer to the next owner. In addition, up to five friends you refer will also receive free Supercharging. . . .”
I thought that it would transfer to the next owner under the policy announced last month. Is that an IEVS typo? BTW, I'm getting an almost Trump-induced case of whiplash, as Tesla makes multiple 180-degree turns in quick succession.
