Elon Musk has been making some crazy claims about the next generation Tesla Roadster, but now he is topping them off with a claim that it will actually be able to hover over the ground. expand full story
Following his settlement with the SEC over his comments made on Twitter, Elon Musk had to step down from his role of Chairman of Tesla’s board.
Some have been questioning his influence over the board in his new role, but in a new interview, Musk was brutally honest about Tesla’s board and the SEC situation – saying that he “can get anything done that he wants” because he is the largest shareholder. expand full story
Buyers can now receive 6 months of free supercharging with any new Tesla vehicle order when using a current owner’s Tesla referral code to purchase a new Model S, X or Model 3.
This incentive replaces the previous $100 supercharging credit and is retroactive – all owners who used a referral code on a purchase since September 19th will receive 6 free months of supercharging in addition to the $100 credit they already received (which does not have an expiration date).
The last round of Tesla’s referral program isn’t even over yet, but today Tesla announced a new round which extends from May 19th all the way through the end of this year, December 31st 2017. While this overlaps with the previous program which ends on June 15th, qualifying referrals between now and the end of that program will count for prizes from both referral programs for owners who have at least one referral between March 16 and May 19.
Tesla has previously limited the number of referrals a single owner can give out, and this time has lowered the limit down to 5, from the previous 9. Most interestingly, though, in addition to providing $1,000 off a new Model S or X, owners can provide their five referrals with unlimited supercharging. Tesla used to provide unlimited supercharging for all Model S and X vehicles, but recently ended that program for orders made past Jan 15th and delivered after April 15th.
