Referral Program Adds Chance to Race a Tesla Semi

This site may earn commission on affiliate links.
New rewards were added today to Tesla’s Referral Program, including the chance to race the Tesla Semi around the company’s test track.

The latest promotion challenges referrers to bring in the most newsletter subscribers between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2018. The winner earns the opportunity to take the wheel of the Semi. Tesla then plans to rank each weekly winner based on their time on the track.


The update to the Referral Program also includes a change to the company’s Supercharging policy. Model S and Model X buyers that purchase a vehicle before April 30 with an existing owner’s referral code will be granted free and unlimited use of Tesla’s global Supercharging network. Also, a $500 credit for service or accessories will be given to to the first person referred via the owner’s code.

A VIP experience is also part of the update. Five qualified referrals earn a trip to the next unveiling event, likely the Model Y compact SUV.

Prizes are also offered for referring Tesla solar installations, including a $400 cash or $750 credit for each installed referral, as well as a Founders Series Powerwall 2 home battery unit.

See Tesla’s descriptions for the full list of awards below:

Might update -- It's not the person with the most newsletter referrals that wins - but rather each referral link used to subscribe to the newsletter will result in an entry to a weekly drawing for both the subscriber and the person associated with the link. The more referrals, the more entries to the weekly drawing. The first drawing will be Feb. 8th.

This is separate from referral codes used to purchase a new Model X or Model S. Once you hit 25 referrals, you unlock the 'Race the Semi' reward for Level 4. No drawing, it's a reward for that number of referrals.

(Level 1 - Roadster Discount, Level 2 - Drive Boring Machine, Level 3 - Falcon Heavy Launch).
