Free Tesla Powerwall For Tesla Owners Who Refer 5 People

Originally published on EV Obsession.

You’re probably already familiar with Tesla’s current owner referral program — which offers $1000 credit towards purchases from the company for every referral made (the referred party gets $1000 off the purchase of their Model S as well). But have you heard that Tesla is also currently offering free Powerwalls to those who make 5 referrals?

The offer — ongoing until October 31st, possibly longer — is apparently in addition to the earlier offer to give owners responsible for 5 referrals an invitation to the opening party for the Gigafactory, set to take place next spring.

Given the company’s recent legal trouble concerning the referral program in California, it remains to be seen if this current trial phase will be continued, or simply scrapped owing to the efforts by the car dealership associations. So those interested should probably hurry…

Electrek provides more information:

Those who make 10 referrals will have the chance to purchase a fully-loaded Founder Series Model X, which is not available through regular purchase, for the price of a base-level Model X— which represent about $25,000 in savings. The first person to make 10 referrals, in each region Tesla operates, gets a fully loaded Model X for free.

Finally, the owner with the most referrals by the end of the month, again per region, will be able to exchange their current Model S for a brand new fully loaded Ludicrous P90D Model S. Here’s where things get crazy, the top referrer currently has 88 confirmed referrals. At the average sale price of the Model S, that’s about $8 million in revenue generation in 3 months from a single Tesla owner.

Well that certainly explains why the referral program is as generous as it is then, doesn’t it?

It should be noted that Bjorn Nyland has seemingly won the sole free Founder Edition Model X.
