Tesla to begin scaling back its free charging system

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Tesla is putting the brakes on its free charging system for electric cars.

The company says after Jan. 15 it will no longer offer free access to the company's super charger network. Instead, the free charging network will be rationed to 1,000 miles.

Drivers will pay a fee after that.

The fee varies by state with some states charging by the minute.

Tesla says the reason it's charging for the service is to expand the network when its newest car hits the market.
