    Model 3 Supercharger usage

    Today I visited the Tesla Fremont Headquarters Design Center, and was told by an employee about the supercharger arrangement for Model 3 owners. Model 3 owners will be granted 1000 kWh free supercharger use with their purchase, to use at any time. Once that initial allotment is exhausted...

    Suggestion for Tesla: allow sharing of residential charging

    I am posting this in the Model 3 forum because I think that as the number of Model 3s on the roads starts to increase dramatically, this idea has the most benefit.
