En oppdatering av Supercharging-programmet

The Tesla Team, 7. november 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.

Vi har utformet nettverket slik at alle kunder får en sømløs og behagelig ladeopplevelse når de er borte fra hjemmet, ettersom intensjonen vår alltid har vært at Supercharging skal muliggjøre langdistansereiser. Det er grunnen til at vi i dag melder om en endring i økonomien rundt Supercharging. Denne endringen lar oss reinvestere i nettverket, akselerere dets vekst, og gi alle eiere, nåværende og fremtidige, den beste Supercharging-opplevelsen.

Forsikrer bruk til langdistansereiser
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.

Vi kommer til å offentliggjøre detaljer rundt programmet senere i år. Selv om priser kan svinge over tid og variere regionalt basert på strømpriser, vil Supercharger-nettverket aldri bli et profittsenter.

Disse endringene vil ikke påvirke nåværende eiere eller nye Teslaer bestilt før 1. januar 2017, så lenge de leveres før 1. april 2017.

Veien videre
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.
