Tesla Superchargers Are Getting More Expensive In Europe

Tesla has increased the prices for supercharger use in Europe. In addition, there is a completely new price model, the group is now starting dynamic prices that are time-based. It is, therefore, expensive from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Tesla has surprised with the start of the new price model. If you charge at night, you will save money with the Tesla Superchargers in the future. This has already been tried out in the USA and Norway since last year and Tesla seems to have come to the conclusion that the introduction of the new pricing model is worthwhile.

Unfortunately, the company does not give any details. However, the new dynamic price model has a big catch: It is quite opaque because according to the first reports, the prices are very different nationwide. It is also not clear whether all stations in Germany are now working with a dynamic price. But one thing is certain: on average, Tesla has raised prices by around 6 cents after the last increase in September.

6 a.m. to 10 p.m. expensive peak time

The online magazine Electrive reports that the supercharger in Kamen will in future cost 74 cents per kWh between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. In the remaining hours, you pay 56 cents per kWh – so that has become cheaper at many locations. However, even higher prices were discovered, up to 86 cents per kWh during the day. However, these should be the prices for non-Tesla vehicles.

But it’s still cheaper. At the Supercharger site in Eching in Bavaria, Tesla calculates 51 cents per kWh during the day and 46 cents per kWh at night with the new dynamic pricing. So users will always have to keep an eye on the price of the next Supercharger in advance. With the changes, Tesla wants to divert the rush to the charging stations as far as possible and get users to come outside of peak times.
