      Even with free charging, there are quite a few problems to overcome.  Such as initial cost around $70,000, definitely not a car for the masses.  Also, planning your trip in 50 to 100 mile increments and then maybe waiting in line for your charge at one of the not yet existing stations.
       
      Plus, this company has had a lot of startup delays.  They got a government loan which they have had to delay payback. Currently plannning to sell more stock to pay for the car and this vast network they are planning.

      Read the article - they are promising to do it for free at the moment. Later they will probably not.

      Solar power is very not free. To power a Tesla, driving to work and back every day, takes most of an acre of solar panels, and some way to store roughly a months energy over winter (in most places anyway, more if you live in Alaska). This is very expensive in several different ways.

      Tesla promises free solar-powered travel with new ‘Supercharger’ tech

      Electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors announced Monday that it will roll out a network of solar-powered charging stations across the United States over the next two years, enabling owners of the company’s all-electric “Model S” vehicles to “travel for free, forever, on pure sunlight.”

      Well they stopped Tesla giving free energy last time; presumably they will do the same again?
