Tesla Model S Owners Now Get Free In-Car Spotify

By Chris Mills on at

Looking for some way to justify that £50,000 Tesla Model S? Well, how about this: starting today, Model S owners in some countries will have free in-car access to Spotify Premium. At £10 saved per month, that’s only 416 years until you break even!

The move to Spotify isn’t random: Tesla previously offered in-car streaming through Rdio, who went abruptly bankrupt last month. But in all honesty, a Spotify tie-in is more than just a stopgap: it’s a serious upgrade for Model S owners.

The feature is initially coming to Teslas in Europe, Australia and Hong Kong. This isn’t quite a free Premium account, though: Sptofy access will be limited to the car, and drivers will need an account like the rest of us mortals to listen outside. [Telegraph]
