Russia has recently waged war against Ukraine. The whole world has condemned this step. However, Ukrainians mostly remain at the mercy of the Russian army that is now stepping into the Ukrainian capital.
Under the war, Tesla, the world’s leader in terms of EV technology has taken a great step.
EV users located in close by region are being offered free of cost charging facilities through Tesla superchargers.
The company is offering a free charging facility not just for Tesla users but also to owners of other EV brands.
This was reported by a Twitter user who shared a snapshot of the email received from the tech giant.
Why Is It Being Done By Tesla?
This raises the question that why would Tesla undertake this step?
The answer is simply that Tesla wants all EV owners in the region to be safe. For this reason, the company feel that nothing including the cost of charging EVs should get in their way.
While Tesla has offered its help on a humanitarian basis, it can also be considered as the company’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).
In its email, Tesla stated, “We hope this gives you peace of mind to a safe location.”
This warm gesture means a lot to those located in the war zone. Every step that is taken in this regard sends a message of solidarity to the Ukrainian people.
Where Is The Facility Presently Available?
For now, the facility is offered only in selected regions of three countries located in Europe. They include:
At first, the superchargers in Poland & Slovakia can be used free of cost. However, the superchargers in the selected region of Hungary will soon also be added to this list.
Why Is Ukraine Not On The List?
It seems surprising that out of the regions mentioned by Tesla, none is in Ukraine. However, the reason behind this is the fact that there is no Tesla charging station in Ukraine at present.
This has hampered the provision of this great facility to the Ukrainian people in their own country.
For How Long Is The Service Available?
For now, the company has not provided any information about how long the service will remain available.
However, as the war doesn’t seem to be shaping up well, the service might remain available for a long time.
Will Tesla Expand This Free Service?
However, there’s another question that is buzzing the minds of EV owners in the region.
The question is whether or not Tesla will expand the facility to other areas located in the vicinity of Ukraine.
Elon Musk In Action
Elon Musk, who is a highly revered global personality, has taken another radical measure for the Ukrainian people, last week as well.
Starlink internet company confirmed that Ukrainians will be able to get access to its internet soon.
Besides this, the company also dispatched several Starlink terminals to customers for free.
This step was taken so that despite the aggravating situation, dwellers of Ukraine can get access to high-speed internet.
The Russia-Ukraine war has taken a dangerous turn. As Russian forces are invading the country, citizens feel unsafe.
This is why this warm gesture from Tesla means a lot to the people of this county at the moment.
