From part of the article:
'The company also announced that all Model S' will include the Supercharger hardware. It uses a different plug than other EV chargers. But the car can also be charged with other EV chargers, which can’t charge as quickly. The company also offers free charging to its Supercharger customers. “Tesla is taking a slight cost risk that ultimately all customers will want to buy the Supercharger upgrade and receive unlimited, free long distance travel for life,” it said.

Tesla Motors is one of a few new automotive manufacturers committed to building entirely electric-powered vehicles. One other US-based high-end EV manufacturer is Fiskar, but that company is still struggling to gain traction. Tesla started with the Roadster, a sports car that used some Lotus technologies, but was designed by Tesla. Now it’s focussed on its new Model S and the forthcoming Model X, a crossover SUV. It seems that the car manufacturer may now be really on to something. '
