Tesla has built itself a reputation for doing right by its owners in disaster situations, and with ready to ruin the weekend for the Carolinas, the big T is stepping in to offer free Supercharger access and temporary battery capacity unlocks on base-model cars.
Hurricane Florence is expected to impact as many as 25 million people, so the benefit of added range on an electric car is extremely helpful. Customers with Model S and Model X 60 will get bumped to their batteries' physical max capacity of 75 kWh from now until mid-October before being set back to the original configuration.
This isn't the first time that Tesla has done this for its customers. It used the samein 2017. Tesla also continues to work on to help get Puerto Rico back on a power grid after its series of devastating hurricanes last year.
Ashave become in the last year, it's still really good to see a company going the extra mile to help its customers in difficult situations like the ones that the residents of are facing currently.
Tesla representatives did not respond immediately to requests for comment.
