AutoComplete: Tesla's Supercharger will now cost money for new car ownersBMW owners may lose internet access, and Audi may have more Dieselgate problems on its hands.
[MUSIC] Today is Monday, November seventh, and here is what's making news on Road Show. Starting next year new Teslas won't come with free access to the supercharger network. Each new car ordered in 2017 will come with about a thousand miles of free charging, with frees to be charged for any supercharge access thereafter. All vehicles already purchased are grandfathered into the existing free charging system as well as any cars before the end of this year and no, model S pre-orders don't count. Nearly every connected BMW on the road might soon run out of internet. BMW is closing down it's 2G mobile internet services at the end of the year. [MUSIC] 2G gives most pre 2014 and also some current vehicles access to safety and convenience services, like SOS emergency calls, and BMW's concierge. Owners will be able to receive a hardware retrofit to stay connected. Or they can opt for a couple hundreds bucks on a Visa gift card instead. Audi's Dieselgate problems appear far from over. A German newspaper claims that US regulators have found a new defeat device hidden inside the transmissions of new diesel and gas Audi vehicles. This alleged new device can figure out if the car is being emissions tested, and tunks it into a special mode that curtails carbon dioxide emissions and improves fuel economy. Pollution then rises and fuel economy falls when the car is on an actual road. Find more on these stories over at the RoadShow.com and we'll talk to you tomorrow.
