Tesla dramatically lowers the price of its Superchargers

The American firm has just lowered the price of Tesla Superchargers in Europe: prices now start from €0.33/kWh in France.

The ultra-fast chargers for electric cars are becoming more democratic. Previously, Tesla was one of the pioneers in this field, but times have changed and many players have landed on the market: Ionity, TotalEnergies, Electra, Fastned, Allego, or even Lidl…

To remain competitive, the Tesla Superchargers must adapt their tariff, which very often follows the evolution of the price of electricity. After proving its prices a few days ago, by introducing off-peak pricing, Tesla is changing them again on November 23, 2022, and this time in a radical way.

Tesla Superchargers: from €0.33/kWh

On average, the price is now displayed from €0.33/kWh for charging during off-peak hours, and from €0.37/kWh at peak consumption (between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.).

For customers who keep recharging an electric vehicle from a manufacturer other than Tesla, it will then be necessary to count from €0.49/kWh in off-peak hours, and from €0.55/kWh in peak hours. Note that the prices of Tesla Superchargers now vary by a few cents, depending on the location of the superchargers, in order to adapt to the local cost of the energy market.

Tesla Superchargers: a competitive price

By way of comparison, the prices of Tesla Superchargers were previously displayed at €0.59/kWh during off-peak hours, and €0.66/kWh during peak hours, which represents a price reduction of approximately 45%!

Previously, vehicles of other brands supplied paid €0.70/kWh during off-peak hours, and €0.78/kWh during peak hours.

Tesla superchargers: cheaper than the competition

By way of comparison, Electra charges €0.44/kWh on its 300 kW ultra-fast terminals, while Ionity charges €0.69/kWh on its 250 kW ultra-fast terminals, excluding subscription or offer set up with partner builders.

At Lidl, which is currently deploying its “e-stations” in France, it costs €0.40/kWh for an ultra-fast charge of up to 360 kW.
