This may be old news to some of you, but I searched the site and couldn't find it, so thought I'd share for others who were wondering the same thing.
It was always unclear to me what the "TBD" meant on the options page for the 60kWh Supercharger Access. Did they mean that it was "TBD" whether or not the 60kWh model would support the Superchargers? Or that the option price was "TBD"?
Today at the test drive event an associate confirmed that it was the latter, and that the 60kWh model WOULD support supercharging. It had just not been determined how much that option will cost.
I have to say that if it is a pricey option (i.e. more than $1500), I am seriously considering downgrading my purchase to the 40kWh. Not much point in extending the range for $10,000 if you won't be able to take road trips with it and use the superchargers. Frankly, I may consider that if they charge anything for it rather than just include it.
Any other 60kWh reservation holders out there with similar thoughts?
