How does Tesla’s free supercharging miles referral program work?

While Tesla’s referral program has changed numerous times over the years, we are here to help you understand the current program and make sure you are maximizing your potential to earn free Supercharging miles because who doesn’t love free miles!

Tesla wants owners to be able to share their excitement for electric vehicles with others and get rewarded for doing so, while also helping the company build the best clean energy products as possible.

As an owner, you will be given a referral link that you can provide to family or friends who are interested in buying a Tesla. You’ll earn awards every time your referral link is used and someone makes the awesome decision to transition to sustainable energy.

The person you are referring must access the Design Studio through your unique referral link for you both to earn referral awards. Referrals can’t be added after an order is placed or at time of delivery and is not a code that is entered at time of purchase. It is very important to make sure your friend or family member has your referral link to begin the purchasing process, or else you will both miss out on receiving any awards.


Now that we have discussed how to refer someone, what exactly are the awards you can receive for referring someone? You and anyone using your referral link can each earn 1,000 miles of free Supercharging with the purchase of a new Tesla car. Free Supercharging miles will apply to any vehicles on the same account. Each car referral also gives you a chance to win a Model Y monthly or Roadster supercar quarterly.

It is important to know that these free Supercharging miles do not last forever. Under typical conditions, they will expire six months after they are added. Currently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla will go ahead and extend the timeline so that owners can properly use the free miles. No specific details have been announced yet on how long free miles will be extended for, but Tesla does not want people to worry about losing the miles they have earned during this tough time.

So if you love free Supercharging miles, make sure you pass your referral link along to anyone in your life who is considering making the switch to driving green!
