Tesla Class Suit Claims That The Automaker Misrepresented Its 3-Year Free Supercharging Offer.

Overview of the class action case for Tesla supercharging:

Who: Sean Cohen sued Tesla Inc. in a collective action.

Why? According to Cohen, Tesla misrepresented to customers who bought a Model S or Model X vehicle between April and June 2023 that they would receive three years of limitless free supercharging.

Where: A federal court in California has been assigned to hear the class action complaint.

A new class action complaint claims that Tesla misrepresented its three-year supercharging guarantee to customers who bought Model S and Model X vehicles between April and June 2023.

Sean Cohen, the plaintiff, alleges that Tesla misled consumers into believing it would offer free supercharging to Tesla Model S and Model X buyers despite falsely advertising as though it would and deceiving them into overpaying for the vehicles as a result.

According to Cohen, Tesla successfully operated an internet marketing ploy that included falsely promoting limitless free supercharging for customers who bought Model S and Model X automobiles between April 20 and June 30.

“Plaintiff would not have purchased a unit of the products, or would have paid a substantially lower price, if he had known that the advertising as described herein was false, misleading, and deceptive,” the Tesla class action claims.

Cohen wants to represent a class of Californian customers who bought a Tesla Model S or Model X for their own use after May 17, 2019.

When buying an electric vehicle, Tesla is aware that supercharging prices are important to consumers, according to a class action lawsuit.

Since the firm allegedly understood the price to supercharge an electric vehicle is “unquestionably material” to car customers, Cohen claims Tesla made the decision to advertise three years of free unlimited supercharging for Model S and Model X consumers.

“That is clearly why defendant Tesla chose to prominently highlight the ‘3 Years of Free Supercharging’ and savings features,” the Tesla class action claims.

Cohen alleges that Tesla has violated the California Unfair Competition Law, the False Advertising Law, and the Consumers Legal Remedies Act, as well as committed fraud, unjust enrichment, and careless misrepresentation.

For himself and all members of the class, the plaintiff is asking for a jury trial, declaratory and injunctive relief, as well as an award of compensatory, statutory, and punitive damages.

Three customers claim Tesla drastically exaggerates the range of its electric vehicles in its ads and launched a separate class action complaint against the firm earlier this month.
