Tesla announced that it is offering free Supercharging during off-peak hours in California to help alleviate holiday traffic and avoid long wait times at Superchargers.

The holidays have been tough stress tests for Tesla’s Supercharger network, and it has not always passed with flying colors.

Especially in California, one of Tesla’s biggest markets per capita and where there’s the largest concentration of Tesla vehicles globally.

Since then, Tesla has been experimenting with discounted Supercharging rates in order to encourage people to travel during off-peak times.

For this Thanksgiving, Tesla is going a step further. It is offering owners to charge for free before 10 a.m. and after 7 p.m. on some routes in California during the holiday weekend:

“Avoid the rush this Thanksgiving holiday and charge for free during off‑peak hours at Superchargers along select California travel routes.”
