A Tesla launch event is always a big deal ... and none will be bigger than the Model 3

A Tesla launch event is always a big deal ... and none will be bigger than the Model 3

Just as one referral program has closed at Tesla, another has replaced it.  Actually two.

As well as a new referral rewards program, the company has announced an "Annual Award" for Tesla customers who refer model Tesla Model S and Model X sales throughout the year, and top prizes for the fastest referrers.

Tesla Referral program rewards 7 leads with a trip to the Model 3 delivery party!

Most interesting in the traditional "Current Phase" of the program, is the offering to current owners the chance to attend the Tesla Model 3 delivery event!

7+ Qualifying Referrals

Owners who make 7 qualifying referrals will receive an invitation for themselves and a guest to attend our Model 3 delivery event.

Unfortunately, there is no actual date for the Tesla Model 3's delivery event, but we do know it is on the horizon for the company after this incentive phase ends on March 15th.

Tesla has mentioned July as a 'best case' for the start of retail production for the Model 3.

As for the "Annual Awards", the first person in each of Tesla's 3 regions to net to 20 referrals will receive a free Model S P100D, or Model X P100D - their choice:

First to 20 Per Region - Ludicrous P100D Model S or Model X

The first person to refer 20 friends starting from January 16 in each sales region— North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific — will receive a P100D Model S or Model X. They will be invited to configure their award once all 20 friends have taken delivery of their new Tesla vehicles.

While all persons who reach 20 referrals in a year get a "weekend getaway at a destination charging resort, as well as the ability to swap their car with the latest Tesla of their choice for a week."

Of course there are lots more prizes (and slightly more attainable) as part of the two-part Tesla Referral Program, which one can check out below:

Good Faith

We introduce programs such as these in good faith and expect the same good faith in return. Please note that we may withhold awards where we believe customers are acting in bad faith or otherwise acting contrary to the intent of this program.
