Hi, I’m Max Goldberg and this is Drive Wire for Monday November 21st, 2016.

Today on Drive Wire we see what Elon Musk has to say regarding free charging of the Telsa Model 3. The Model 3 does not qualify for free charging for life, however the Model 3 will receive several other benefits.

According to Musk, the Model 3 will be given 400 kilowatts of charging for free each year, but they will be restricted from free local charging.

This is where things get a little confusing, Musk then goes on to say that Model 3 owners will get free long distance charging. Now to be honest, I have no idea what the difference between long distance charging and local charging but according to Musk there is one. Once we get a better understanding on the situation, we will be sure to fill you in.

That’s it for Drive Wire on November 21st, 2016. I’m Max Goldberg; thanks for watching, and please check out The Drive for more on the big stories from the transportation world.
