Manuel Carrillo III/Roadshow Have you been kicking yourself for waiting too long to buy a Tesla and missing out on the whole Free Unlimited Supercharging thing? Well, according to a report Tuesday by Electrek, you’re getting another chance at it.What’s the catch? Well, Tesla is bringing back its free unlimited Supercharging promotion, but only for new Model S and Model X vehicles in inventory that are pre-hardware-update. What does that mean? Mostly it means no Model S with 370 miles of range or Model X with 325 miles of range. It also means you’re missing out on other smaller hardware changes like 200-kW Supercharging and the new adaptive suspension — oh, and the tidy power increase from the new motors.Also, unlike other incarnations of the promotion, this version of Free Unlimited Supercharging isn’t transferrable, meaning that you can’t use it as a selling feature when you go to send your Model S or X down the road.Tesla has also priced these new older-spec models a good chunk lower than the updated ones, with a preupdate 2019 Model S 100D going for $77,900 before incentives and a post-update model in the same trim starting at $85,000. Neither includes the company’s so-called Full Self-Driving hardware.So, is it worth it to buy the older model for free Supercharging?Well, that all depends on how you use your car. If you — like most people — charge your car at home overnight with a Level 2 system, then no, it’s not. If you are regularly using Supercharger stations to keep topped up because you don’t have reliable access to overnight Level 2 charging, then it just might be.Tesla didn’t immediately respond to Roadshow’s request for comment.last_img
