Tesla updated details for its latest Referral Program, the eighth since the company first launched the incentive program nearly two years ago. The program, designed to reduce Tesla’s cost of selling cars while passing savings on to customers, has been widely successful because of the $1,000 instant discount to buyers, but also the generous prize list made available to referring Tesla owners. Tesla has previously given away a free Founders Edition Tesla Model X to YouTuber Bjørn Nyland for having the most referrals through the program.
Prizes being offered in the latest Tesla Referral Program largely stayed the same as the most recent program it replaced, with the exception being a new drawing for a private SpaceX tour. According to details outlined in the program, which we’ve provided below, all qualifying referrals will be entered into a drawing for a Ludicrous P100D Model S or Model X, but also a SpaceX Tour. One winner will receive a Tesla vehicle and a private tour for four to see developments taking place behind closed doors at the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California. This is the same site where Elon Musk recently hopped into a full-scale Hyperloop concept pod during the competition held outside of SpaceX. And the site where a Model 3 Prototype was spotted testing in the backlot of the rocket company.
Tesla’s newest Referral Program will award existing Model S and Model X owners that make 7+ qualifying referrals with an invitation to the highly anticipated Model 3 delivery event. There’s been no official announcement on when this event will take place but fine print outlined in Tesla’s latest “Loveday Project” rules puts the final “Part 3” Model 3 event at or around June 2, 2017.
Full details of Tesla’s eighth referral program, good between March 16 to June 15, 2017, is outlined in its entirety below.
If you’ve enjoyed visiting our site and seeing our live behind the scenes coverage of events, please consider using our referral code for $1,000 off the purchase of your Model S and Model X. Your support helps us with content production. We’re particularly interested in bringing your the first photos of the Elon Musk-signed Red Powerwall 2.0.
