What does reducing the free yearly Super Charger allowance mean in the long run? Does it mean slower or the end of super charger expansion? After all, why do we need more super chargers if we'll be driving less? Loss of the millennial market share? No more 30 somethings buying S60s. Will Elon introduce a lifetime Super Charger fee? Will it cost 5K, 10K, 15K? What is a lifetime of eGas estimated to be? Will Tesla stock plummet like Netflix and rise again? But Netflix rebounded because there was no cheaper comparable market alternative. Can the same be said of Tesla?
I'm sure that the bean counters at Tesla thought long and hard about the repercussions of such a move. And they are convinced that this gamble will somehow put Tesla in a stronger market position.
