Referral Program

Our goal is to build the best clean energy products and help Tesla owners share their excitement and experiences with others. As an owner, you’ll earn awards every time your referral link is used by your friends and family when they transition to sustainable energy and grow our community.

Orders for a Tesla car will need to be placed by accessing the Design Studio through your unique referral link for you both to earn referral awards. Note that referrals can't be added after an order is placed or at time of delivery and is not a code that is entered at time of purchase.

Download the Tesla app to start sharing your referral link and track the status of your awards in the Loot Box.

You and anyone using your referral link can each earn 1,500 kilometers of free Supercharging with the purchase of a new Tesla car — designed to be some of the safest cars on the road.


All referral orders must be placed through an active referral link as the referral cannot be added after order. To be eligible for referral benefits, orders of Model S, Model X and Model 3 must be placed on or after Oct 1, 2019, and orders of Model Y must be placed on or after June 9, 2020. Awards will be provided to eligible customers after delivery. Orders of Cybertruck and used Tesla vehicles are not eligible.


  • Eligible purchases of a new or leased Model S, Model X, Model 3 or Model Y:
    • Free Supercharging miles can be used by any vehicles on the same account and will expire 6 months after the miles are added. If all mileage on an account is used before expiration, the expiration date for the next referral is reset to 6 months.

Must be at least 18 years old to be eligible for benefits and are non-transferable or redeemable for cash. The customer is responsible for all taxes and local requirements and fees. Program and awards are conditional on and subject to local laws and regulations.

The customer may not be an employee, legal representative or partner of Tesla or any Affiliate of Tesla. Nothing in the Referral Program shall be deemed to create any kind of relationship between the referrer and Tesla or any of Tesla’s Affiliates. The referrer has no authority to represent or bind Tesla. Terms and conditions are subject to change.

Good Faith

We introduce programs such as these in good faith and expect the same good faith in return. Please note that we may withhold awards where we believe customers are acting in bad faith or otherwise acting contrary to the intent of this program. To be clear, commercializing, advertising, publishing, mass distributing, selling or paying for use of referral links is not appropriate, and we will not honor such links. We cannot cover every nefarious scenario, nor will we attempt to, but we do promise to be fair and reasonable.

Not OK:

  • Advertising
  • Spam
  • Anything misleading or annoying
  • Social media bios
  • Paying or offering incentives for use of your link
  • Referral code aggregation, including posting to deal and coupon sites


  • YouTube channels
  • Informational & fan websites
  • Social media sharing
