No unlimited free Supercharging for Teslas ordered after January 1, 2017

Since 2012, Tesla has invited its customers to plug in to chargers that add 200 to 300 miles of range per hour. The feature known as Supercharger Network-the world’s fastest charging solution.

According to the Teslas Blog post:-

But as of January 1, 2017 anyone who orders a Tesla will get just 400kwh of free supercharging credits per year, good for about 1,000 miles of driving. After that, using the fast chargers will incur a small fee, which has not yet specified. But it is mentioned that the prices may fluctuate over time and vary regionally based on the cost of electricity.

The new income will be used to build new Supercharger network. It’s likely that this fee will go toward expanding the network for the forthcoming Model 3.
The move means that those who buy Tesla’s mass-market $35,000 Model 3, which is due to go on sale in the second half of next year, won’t get unlimited free charging. Tesla has more than 300,000 reservations for the cars, and if all those owners started using supercharger stations for free, that could get expensive for Tesla

Nissan’s autonomous chairs commence a public trial in Japan 2017

Tired of standing in the queues. So Nissan’s self-driving Chair is just perfect for you. For the tired legs of Britain and elsewhere, however, queuing could soon be a thing of the past.

Nissan unveiled the chair on Tuesday which is named after the company’s flagship autonomous driving technology, the ProPilot. It uses the same technology in the Nissan Serena minivan, a semi-autonomous vehicle that zhelps the car stay in the middle of a lane and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front

“The ProPilot chair appeals to anyone who has ever spent hours standing in line. It automatically queues on behalf of the occupant, sparing them the hassle of standing in line.” Said Nissan

The company hasn’t yet announced plans to launch the chairs elsewhere, so for now London restaurant-goers will have to put up with standing in hour-long queues. Self-Driving technology has also been applied to robots for food delivery.

Nissan will commence a public trial of its robochair in Japan in 2017, installing sets of them at select restaurants where queuing is the norm. Restaurants in Japan that would like a fleet of the chairs for their customers to apply to Nissan before December 27.
