Tesla Motors Inc will be giving consumers a chance to purchase a car with a lifetime unlimited access to its Supercharger network.

In November 2016, Tesla has announced that by January 1, 2017 all purchases of cars will come with 400 kilowatt hours of free supercharging or roughly 1000 miles.

The owners will have to pay a small fee beyond the 400 kilowatt limit to supercharge.

However, in a bid to boost market demand for the electric vehicle company, Tesla has announced that they will be extending the deadline from January 1 to January 15 for free lifetime supercharging.

All purchases of Model S and Model X and those who are able to finalize purchase with in the time period will still be able to avail the free lifetime Supercharging experience.

In a blog post by the company, they will be charging a fee beyond 1,000 miles a year. This will enable the company to reinvest in accelerating the growth of the network.

Customers current and future will be able to have the best supercharging experience as more and more stations throughout the country will be available for public use as reported in an article by the Fortune.

Other news from Tesla Motors Inc. comes with the announcement that the company will be postponing the proposed 5% increase in purchases by UK customers.

The company is raising prices in UK after the British pound's value plunged with the country's exit from the European Union. Tesla only gave customers a week's notice on the price hike.

Tesla later on announced that they will be delaying the price increase by two weeks and the increase will take effect by January 15.

The Palo Alto, California based company estimates that British customers will be able to save up to 6,500 pounds on gasoline and taxes over a five year period according to a report by Bloomberg.
