Whoa, Don’t Get Amped About Your Free Model X Just Yet

Yesterday, we reported that in a sales call, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk announced a referral program that could, possibly, maybe net one free Model X for someone who referred 10 new buyers.
The qualifications for getting the free car: Refer 10 buyers by Oct. 31 and be the first in your “region” to do so.
Turns out “region” doesn’t mean what we think it does.

According to a Tesla spokesman, “region” in this case means “country.” As in, apparently, one (1) Model X will be awarded to a single (1) person in the U.S. for referring 10 new Model S buyers.
In case you’re wondering, the U.S. is a larger market for Tesla than the next nine countries combined.
So if you live in Switzerland, it may be a good deal to get your friends to buy a Tesla and score your own for free. If you live in Dallas, however, you should probably line up your friends at the “dealership” today.
Lesson: Elon Musk is really, really good at marketing.
