Most Teslas do not charge free however some do. I believe any made prior to June 2016 has unlimited lifetime supercharging, with some exceptions (e.g. if a 2015 Model S was traded back into Tesla and you bought it as a certified pre-owned from Tesla, I believe they take away the free supercharging). There are also various ways to get free charging credits.

As for the total cost to charge, it depends on local power rates and of course how much you're charging. Average looks to be about $0.25 per kW, so if you were charging from 10%-90% on a long range model 3, it'd be about $16.40.

I own a 2021 Model Y and only charge at home most of the time. My cost is .08 per kW. After 10 months of owning it and 10,642 miles I have spent a total of $227.32 in electricity. There is an App called Optiwatt that tracks all of this automatically for me. According to the app, I've saved $1,496 compared to a comparable vehicle using gas. There is also absolutely no maintenance other than filling up the wiper fluid when it runs low.

There is so much hate for Tesla its kind of funny. I have a M3-SR and its the most practical car i own out of 3. (other two are gas guzzlers -1 of them is a track car 6 speed manual) . By Far the Tesla is the cheaper option for me to drive and the most convenient. I charge at home and every morning its always ready to go the 190 miles i have my charging limit set at. I rarely go longer. I live in SoCal and have Solar so electric bill is not a problem, On long drives (say Bay area) i would hit most of the charging stations that are on the free list and this promo would be use full for thousands of tesla owners traveling the same route that weekend. Lots of people asked the question how long and how much does it cost if it was not free. Below you will find a road trip i did to Central Cal. I charged 4 times in between as we took a bit of a scenic route at times. Depending on the amount of charge i took each time- none were over 20 minutes in length. (most spent in restrooms or restaurants grabbing a bite)

Overall Supercharger is meant to be used for trips and is still cheaper than GAS but this argument of having to wait 20 minutes to charge is not really a case for 99% of days as my car never drivers more than 100 miles on any regular days and comes home at night to charge back up. I feel like fueling up and waiting for the tank to fill up is a longer wait than charging my tesla at home. Also waiting in line as a Costco Gas station would be way more than the 20 minutes. Its also not for everyone, Same trip in a modern SUV would cost me about $150 for gas with current Gas prices at $6.29 a gallon.(91-Oct)

Also- People bitching here are mostly the ones not owning one and this post is of no relevance to people who dont even drive a tesla but are here just for the troll :p. The below info is for the people who have showed an honest interest in learning something new or considering a TSLA

12/28/2021 Tejon Ranch, CA Supercharging $4.08
17 kWh @ $0.24/kWh$4.08

12/28/2021 Buttonwillow, CA Supercharging $12.16
32 kWh @ $0.38/kWh$12.16

12/26/2021 San Luis Obispo, CA - Higuera St. Supercharging $6.84
18 kWh @ $0.38/kWh$6.84

12/26/2021 Santa Barbara, CA Supercharging $13.30
35 kWh @ $0.38/kWh$13.30
That's not it. It's like asking someone on the internet how much insurance they pay, it varies based on location and situation.

Tesla M3LR has 82kwh battery in Virginia at 12c/kWh it could cost $9.84 for full battery, in California at 26 c/kwh could be $21. Others charge free at work (me), free at apartment complex, have membership plans, supercharge only, etc. etc.

Usually the average person saves a lot on gas and leaves house with full charge. IMO after getting used to charging, it's so simple and routine.
Define 'normal charge'.

If you mean from <20% to 80%, about 15-20 minutes if car is preconditioned. It's a walk to restroom, get a cup of coffee, and a few minutes to scroll-length of time.

With the current heatwave, this is likely done to reduce strain on the electric grid

Teslas generally have about 250-350 miles of range. Surperchargers are mostly meant for those travelling (it's best to charge at home if you can) and they recommend you go no lower than about 20% charge and top up to about 80%. You do do that in about 15 minutes with a supercharger.

Interestingly, it's faster than phones take.

Ohio not on the list but who cares in my case. Charging at home is quite cheap and I'm not paying 4.50/gal.
