What electric cars are better than petrol? They do a lot of advantages, among which are almost zero pollution, quiet and work on electricity which is much cheaper than gasoline. Owners of electric cars Tesla Model S and Model X do not need to pay for the charging stations Supercharger worked for them for free. That all changed in 2016, when the company wanted more money and began to demand from the owners of the above vehicles a fee for charging.
Charging Tesla was paid due to the fact that the company started to lose too much money. Basically, the funds went into technical support of the charging stations — the introduction of fees for charging the Tesla Model S and Model X was supposed to cover the costs. Owners of vehicles purchased before January 2017, may continue to charge for free. But buyers of new vehicles have lost their privileges in the year they received free-of-charge, which is enough for 1600 kilometers. Further exercises had to pay.
Free charging Tesla
Now charging the Tesla Model S and Model X again became free. This is quite a surprise, but this turn of events is quite a good reason. Recently, the company Tesla published a report on the number of cars sold and the amount of the profits. For the first half of 2019, the manufacturer sold in the USA 7550 instances of the Tesla Model S, although in the same period of time last year 10 sold 820 cars. Overall, sales of expensive models decreased by 30.2% and the company lost 408 million dollars.
It would be cool if the cars were charged on the go. This is already possible
In the US, the Tesla is still somehow available, but in Europe the Affairs of the company are going from bad to worse. It is reported that car sales Tesla Model S has been reduced to two, and Tesla Model X four times. But what are the reasons for reduction of people’s interest in expensive cars? Perhaps this was due to the release of a relatively cheap car Tesla Model 3. What? It looks very nice, and the inside has everything you need for a comfortable ride and hanging out — you can even run the game.
How to increase sales of Tesla?
But whether the company to interested buyers alone free charging anyone is not clear. How long the campaign will last is still unknown, so current owners of cars should hurry up and take advantage of the free stations. It is noteworthy that if the person bought the car from the owner, the action is not covered, because free of charge is available only to the original owner.
As you have seen, how is charging the Tesla?
Ways of charging the Tesla quite a lot and each of them has its disadvantages. For example, the electric car can be charged at home, but for a full recharge of the battery requires more than 29 hours. Charge rate at the Supercharger stations depends on their version — the first and the second version charges the car in about an hour and a half, and the third dealing with it for 50 minutes. Generally, by staying on the station, the owners are bored and sitting inside their cars.
