Another increase in the cost of charging is observed not only in the United States but throughout the world. The American manufacturer of electric cars, Tesla, has dramatically increased the cost of charging at Supercharger branded stations.
Now the owners of electric vehicles are forced to pay for consumed kWh or during the use of the Supercharger in those markets where direct sales of electricity are prohibited.Last year, Tesla has already increased the cost of charging at Supercharger stations in the United States. In some places, the price has almost doubled, although in most regions the increase was 20-40%.
At this time, the next increase in the cost of charging is observed not only in the United States but throughout the world. If before prices were set for each state or region, now for each Supercharger station. For example, in California, charging a Tesla car will cost $ 0.32-0.36 per kWh (previously $ 0.26). In Europe, the situation is similar.
In addition, from February 1, Tesla will stop the referral program, in which the owners of Tesla electric cars received the opportunity to charge their cars for free from the network of Supercharger stations for six months.
Tesla claims that she never considered Supercharger charging stations to be a source of profit, and all of their income goes to expanding the charging network.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that Tesla shares fell by more than 12% after Mask's posts on staff reductions.
