Tesla Chargers are no longer free
Although Tesla has provided free services at the charging stations called as “Superchargers” for vehicles sold by them, the new announcement now shows that Tesla will follow a different strategy on cost. New Tesla owners have to pay a small fee in their Supercharger operations to charge their vehicles.
Thanks to the Supercharger stations built by Tesla in different regions, the drivers could charge their cars to reach 170 km in just 30 minutes. The ability to offer high-speed charging in strategic locations ensures that journeys are uninterrupted and without electricity problems. The use of Supercharger will be charged even though the use of these charging stations is free, especially for those who have owned the new Tesla so far.
Supercharger Fee Will Be Paid After January 15
They announced that after the January 15th, new car recipients will be charged for Supercharger use. However, Tesla, who wants to improve the conditions, will give a free supercharger loan of 1000 miles, which they can use for one year to every car owner. In case of exceeding 1000 miles during the year, the loan will be purchased with a fee and the vehicles will be charged with this credit.
Although they did not disclose details of the new pricing in detail, it showed that prices would be appropriate with the example given. After this work to reduce costs, those who will charge the vehicle for a fee will have $ 120 in electricity consumption on the journey between Los Angeles and New York.
No Target Profit for the Superchargers
In the written statement from Tesla’s official blog address on the subject, it was emphasized that the current regulation is only aimed at reducing costs and introducing new vehicle owners. Thus, before January 15th, owners of vehicles will continue to benefit from the system free of charge. In addition, Tesla explicitly stressed that Supercharger stations will never carry profit.
