Since yesterday, the use of Supercharger chargers has stopped being free. Every owner of Tesla will therefore have to bear the additional charges. The manufacturer has just revealed their height.
Over the years, Tesla Motors’ American car users have been able to use the supercharger for free. These are devices that allow battery power to be added in a very short time, greatly enhancing the functionality of these vehicles.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer announced a few months ago that the Supercharger is no longer free and yesterday changed into a change that obliges Tesla owners to pay for the use of these chargers. Each of them will receive only 400 kWh of energy for free, which according to the manufacturer is enough to cover a distance of about 1600 km. It will have to use it within 12 months of delivery, but after reaching this limit, it will have to reach for the wallet.
You already know how much you will have to pay for using chargers. Prices will vary according to location and eg in California will be 20 cents per 1 kWh. In Washington, the price will be 12 cents per kWh, while in Virginia it will be 22 cents per kWh.
This is just one form of Supercharger fee, as in some states a slightly different rule will apply. In the case of cars with a battery capacity of up to 60 kWh the owner will pay 8 cents per minute of charge. If you load a model with a larger battery, then the rate is increased to 16 cents per minute. Energy charges can be made electronically.
