Free supercharing for life ?

I made a down payment of the 2020 Tesla Roadster but did not use any special referral code from anyone. I heard that you can get free supercharging if you use the referral code. Will I still get free supercharging if I buy the Roadster in 2020? With such an expensive car, I thought that they would throw in the supercharging for free.

No one could use a referral code for the 2020 Roadster. The referral codes are only valid on the S and X. Let’s hope that Tesla provides free supercharging on the 2020 Roadster in any event!

You don't use a referral code when putting a reservation (i.e. down payment) on a Tesla. When you actually order/configure your car, you will be asked for a referral code.

Yeah no Roadster referrals available. That said, I suspect they’d include free supercharging with one. Can’t imagine they’re lump the Roadster with the 3! Maybe if you refer a Roadster buyer, they’ll give you a free 3! Haha

Agree with your concern @SanDiegoGuy.
Who wants to wait forever, almost twice as long as their 100D or P100D takes to charge, while in their garage on a 100A HPWC? The Roadster 2020 has to have free supercharging for life.

Your argument is based on a false premise. It's not about how much you have to charge — it's about how much you're driving in total. I can't see a 2020 Roadster owner somehow driving twice as much they would in a 100kWh Model S or X. And with a 100A HPWC you'll still charge the car from zero in roughly 12 hours.

I’m betting the Founders’ Edition Roadsters will have unlimited supercharging. ...And the non Founders one probably gets it too, but I wouldn’t be surprised either way.
