Tesla has stopped offering lifetime Supercharging at signing, but nearly every other EV manufacturer is tempting customers with free charging deals. Here are all the incentives available now.

To clear out inventory and boost sales, Tesla is once again offering unlimited free Supercharging with new model EVs. But time is running out to get in on the deals.

The Elon Musk-owned company stopped offering free Supercharging for the life of your vehicle in 2018. It's touted various shorter-term iterations since then, often around the end of a quarter or at holiday time.

Now customers who buy a new Model 3 before June 30, 2023, receive three months of free Supercharging. If you buy a pricier Model S or Model X, the offer gets bumped up to three years.

Though Tesla has stopped including no-cost charging as a standard incentive, most other EV manufacturers still offer it. The exact details can change, so be sure to check with the manufacturer and dealership for current information.
