I have a 2016 Model S that has lifetime free Supercharger charging. I usually charge my Model S at home. I have been giving some thought to purchasing a new 2020 Model S this year, but I am hesitant to do so because I know it will not come with the free Supercharger charging, but the purchaser of my Model S will "inherit" the free charging.
I would like to see Tesla give current, faithful owners like myself (I have placed an order for a Y to replace my Lexus SUV) the opportunity to retain the free charging on a new Model S, and simultaneously discontinue the free charging on my 2016 Model S.
Doing so would be a double win for Tesla - it would encourage present owners like me to trade up, and keep other owners who rarely use their Model S at a Supercharger from selling the older Model S to a purchaser who may be buying it because they do a lot of long-distance driving and want the advantage of free Supercharging, which costs Tesla.
