Tesla users will need to check their Tesla App under “Specs and Warranty” to find out how much free supercharging they qualify for, after which they will be charged at a standard rate which fluctuates but can be around 69p/kWh. Regular Supercharging users can choose to pay a monthly subscription which will allow them to pay a reduced price of 50p/kWh.

Yes. When the Tesla model S starts, you may hear the sound of the compressor as the air suspension system’s reservoir fills with air. Although the Smart Air Suspension was an optional extra for the model S in 2014, it became standard in all models released after 2017.

The purpose of Adaptive Air Suspension offers the driver the choice between a softer or firmer ride based on their preferences as well as offering a more level height between the front and rear when carrying loads.
