Just over a month after the end of the program, Tesla brings back a referral program with a different structure. It now gives 1,000 miles of free Supercharger and the chance to win a Founders Series Model Y and a Founders Roadster signed by Elon Musk and Franz von Holzhausen.
Instead of giving gains based on how many referrals an owner accumulates, Tesla is now giving 1,000 miles of free Supercharging to both the owner who gives the referral and the new buyer receives the referral.
The reference also gets a chance (two if you already have unlimited Supercharging) to win cars that Tesla will release monthly and quarterly.
Here's what Tesla explained:
"Now every time a friend buys a new Tesla using your referral code, you both get 1,000 miles of free supercharging. Each referral also gives you a chance to win a founder's series Model Y monthly and a founder's series Roadster supercar quarterly, both signed by Elon Musk and Franz von Holzhausen. Tesla owners who already have unlimited Supercharging get two chances to win with each referral. "
Tesla completed the original referral program back in February with reference to the cost.
As we previously reported, it resulted in Tesla giving away over 80 new Roadsters for free.
The cost ended higher than expected, but it helped stimulate owners to promote the business, and now they bring back more reasonable incentives.
It's certainly a much more sensible approach to the referral program.
I especially like that both the new buyer and the person making the referral get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging.
It sounds like you can accumulate them – which means that if you continue to refer to Tesla vehicles, you may never have to pay for Supercharging, which may be particularly bad for Model 3 owners.
There may still be a few things to train. For example, I have free supercharging on my Model S, but I don't have it on my Model 3.
Tesla tells me that I get two chances to win because it probably looks at the Supercharger status of my model s, but I think I would much prefer just one chance to win the cars and get 1,000 miles of free supercharging for my model 3.
It still looks like a much more reasonable and fair version of
