Tesla introduces new 50% Supercharging discount at night in California

Tesla is introducing a new 50% discount for Supercharging during the night at Supercharger stations in metro areas in California.

It’s the automaker’s latest move to help with network capacity.

Last year, Tesla started testing temporary Supercharger discounts in California.

In that case, it looked like Tesla was trying to incentivize people to charge at night in order to offset expensive peak demand charges and reduce traffic at busy Supercharger stations.

During off-peak hours, Tesla was charging $0.09/kWh – a significant discount of less than a third of the regular price per kWh at most Supercharger stations in California.

Earlier this year, Tesla expanded those tests to other markets, including Norway and Sweden.

Now the automaker is introducing another type of Supercharger discount again in California, one of Tesla’s most important markets.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Lucky to have lifetime free supercharging for the Tesla here. This car will not last a lifetime, and the free supercharging isn't transferable to a newer Tesla - though the supercharging is transferable if this car is ever sold.

At least that's the way it works for now.

Tesla keeps going back and forth on this, but they haven't supported the free, unlimited, supercharging notion since fall of 2018. Seems like whenever they need to boost sales of Model S or X they come up with some kind of "deal" that doesn't involve cutting the actual price. But now the perks are extra optional features rather than the free supercharger time.
