Un aggiornamento al nostro Programma Supercharger

The Tesla Team, 7 novembre 2016

Four years ago, Tesla introduced the Supercharger Network – the world’s fastest charging solution – to enable convenient long distance travel. Today, more than 4,600 Superchargers allow over 160,000 Tesla owners to drive across the continental U.S., from the Arctic Circle to the south of Spain, and across all of the population centers in China and Japan, among many other places. Supercharging has even helped owners drive their Teslas around the world.

Abbiamo progettato la nostra rete in modo che tutti i clienti abbiano accesso ad un’esperienza di ricarica simile e conveniente quando sono lontani da casa, proprio perché’ l’intenzione della ricarica Supercharger è sempre stata quella di consentire viaggi di lunga distanza. Ecco perché oggi stiamo annunciando un cambiamento nell'economia del Supercharger - che ci permette di reinvestire nella rete, accelerarne la crescita e portare a tutti i proprietari, attuali e futuri, la migliore esperienza Supercharger.

Garantire l’uso per viaggi di lunga distanza
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.

Rilasceremo i dettagli del programma nel corso dell’anno, i prezzi potrebbero fluttuare nel tempo e variare localmente in base al costo dell’elettricità, ma la nostra Rete Supercharger non diventerà mai un centro di profitto.

Questi cambiamenti non riguarderanno i clienti attuali e non saranno applicati sulle nuove Tesla ordinate prima dell’1 gennaio 2017 e prese in consegna prima dell’1 aprile 2017.

Prossimi Passi
Just as you would charge your cell phone, we believe the best way to charge your car is either at home or at work, during the hours you’re not using it. For travelers, the Supercharger Network has become a powerful, unique benefit of Tesla ownership. As we approach the launch of Model 3, this update will enable us to greatly expand our Supercharger Network, providing customers with the best possible user experience and bringing sustainable transport to even more people.

Update: Because of high demand and to give an opportunity to those customers who could not order over the holidays, we are extending it so customers can place an order for a Model S or X until January 15th, 2017 and take delivery by April 15, 2017 to receive free unlimited Supercharging.
