The new Tesla PowerWall is in such high demand that the high-output home battery system is already sold out through 2016. Which means that, if you weren’t one of the initial thirty-eight thousand reservation holders, you may be waiting a long time for your PowerWall … unless, that is, you happen to convince a few of your friends to buy Tesla cars in the meantime.
That’s right, kids! If you happen to convince five of your friends to buy a new Tesla Model S or Model X you can get your very own PowerWall and an invitation to the Gigafactory’s opening bash. Our sister site, EV Obsession, has more on the story, below.
Tesla Offering Powerwalls To Owners Who Make 5 Referrals
You’re probably already familiar with Tesla’s current owner referral program — which offers $1000 credit towards purchases from the company for every referral made (the referred party gets $1000 off the purchase of their Model S as well). But have you heard that Tesla is also currently offering free Powerwalls to those that make 5 referrals?
The offer — ongoing until October 31st, possibly longer — is apparently in addition to the earlier offer to give owners responsible for 5 referrals an invitation to the opening party for the Gigafactory, set to take place next spring.
Given Tesla Motors’ recent legal trouble concerning the referral program in California, it remains to be seen if this current trial phase will be continued, or simply scrapped owing to the efforts by the car dealership associations. So those interested should probably hurry!
