Tesla releases the details of its new referral program: custom wheels, Model X and more in prizes


Yesterday we reported on Tesla reactivating the referral links of Model S and X owners for another round of its referral program. Today, the automaker released the details and the prizes for referrers. Tesla confirmed that the program begins today May 30 and will run until July 15, 2016.

As we discussed, Tesla is still tuning this program and this round is again different. Now the automaker is combining both prizes based on the number of referrals you get and on luck with each referral counting as an entry into a drawing.

It wasn’t clear yesterday, but the $1,000 in credit can be applied toward the new vehicle purchase as per the new details released today.

You can read about all the prizes below:

5 Qualifying Referrals
Owners who make 5 qualifying referrals will receive a set of 21” custom Arachnid wheels in black, silver or grey, including summer performance tires and installation. These exclusive forged aluminum wheels offer improved performance and are not available for purchase.

4+ Qualifying Referrals
Each owner who makes 4 or more qualifying referrals will receive an invitation for two to attend the Gigafactory opening event at the end of July, including transportation to the Gigafactory from Reno, Nevada.

3+ Qualifying Referrals
Owners who make 3 or more referrals will receive an exclusive Tesla Owners Jacket.

Note: I’m not sure which Jacket it will be exactly. Since they are talking about an “exclusive” jacket, it could be something not available elsewhere, unlike the Tesla Corp jacket or the Modena Leather Jacket seen below, or maybe something else:

2+ Qualifying Referrals
Owners who makes 2 or more qualifying referrals will receive a Tesla Moab Weekender Bag that matches their car’s interior.

Ludicrous P90D Model X
Each qualified referral you make gives you an additional entry into a drawing to win a Ludicrous P90D Model X.

You can use our referral code to get $1,000 in credit toward the purchase of a new Model S or X ordered before July 15, 2016.
