The Electric Cars That Get Free Electrify America Fast Charging In The US

Automakers typically offer free charging as an additional incentive for purchasing a new electric car. Early Tesla models like the Model S and Model X came with unlimited free charging via the brand's proprietary Supercharger network. However, Tesla revoked unlimited free supercharging in 2016 and capped the free charging amount to 400 kWh per year. It also utilizes a referral program that offers free Supercharging miles on select Tesla EVs. But what about other EVs?

New and legacy automakers have teamed up with fast-charging networks like Electrify America, ChargePoint, EVgo, and SemaConnect to offer free charging to some new long-range EVs. But with the number of new EVs released to the market, an average consumer may find it confusing to discern which electric car comes with free charging from a particular charging network.

We compiled a short list of new electric cars in the U.S. to come with free fast charging from Electrify America. Electrify America is a VW Group of America subsidiary with more than 780 charging locations and more than 2,600 charging units across the continental United States (via Electrify America). VW established the charging network in 2016.
