All current Tesla owners and those who order a Model S, Model X, or Model 3 before July 1st will never have to pay to maintain the current level of internet connectivity in their cars.
For vehicles ordered after July 1st, Tesla will start offering two different packages: ‘Premium Connectivity package’ and ‘Standard Connectivity package.’
As the name entails, the ‘Standard Connectivity package’ will come at no additional charge.
At least those who have or order before July 1st get Lifetime Premium Connectivity. Read more over at electrek for the details in the Standard Connectivity vs. Premium Connectivity which is rumored to be ~$100 or so a year, which really isn’t bad considering all the traffic updates, streaming Slacker Radio and podcasting. And as always, be sure to use my referral code for FREE Supercharging before July 14.
