Tesla Is Hiking Supercharger Prices "Significantly" Across Europe

SCHANDEFREUDE Edition :lol:

Prices are going up at the pump...err, we mean the Tesla Superchargers.

According to a new report from electrek, Tesla is increasing prices at its Supercharger stations "significantly" across Europe as the continent continues to deal with a sprawling energy crisis that shows no signs of slowing.

The additional price hikes come after Tesla has already increased prices throughout 2022.

"Due to an increase in energy prices, we are adjusting Supercharging pricing across Europe," Tesla wrote in a letter to its owners in Europe this week. The rising prices not only are a burden for EV owners, but they are starting to challenge the narrative that EVs are cheaper to own and operate on a day to day basis.

"One of the biggest advantages of electric vehicles remains that their cost of operations is much lower than vehicles with internal combustion engines," electrek wrote. But with rising prices at Supercharging stations, who knows how much longer that perceived "benefit" will continue to help buoy demand for electric vehicles.

As we noted earlier this month, energy bills in Europe are expected to rise by €2 Trillion. The trigger for this exponential surge in costs: since January 2020, 1-year forward gas and power prices – usually the reference when signing new energy supply contracts for families or industrial customers – have each increased by more than 13x. The following exhibit shows this evolution, rebased to 100.

The blog lamented that it used to cost no more than $5 or $10 for a full charge at a Supercharger. Now, prices are approaching $30.

One Zero Hedge contributor in Europe experienced the rise in prices firsthand this week when an Uber driver, sporting an EV other than a Tesla, remarked that electricity prices had soared over the past week, and that it now costs about $30 to charge fully at a Supercharging station.

A couple dollars more and it'll almost cost the same as filling up with a tank of gas. Oh, the irony...

The price of most everything is going up in Europe, and not just in Europe. Sure we have inflation, but it's worse in most countries, a lot worse.

So singling out one part of the economy is pretty much lying.

For example, gas costs over $5/gal in the wealthier countries. Which means the price differential between gas powered cars and EVs is still there. In fact, it's roughly twice as much.

Ahhh, irony lives!

It's not twice as much.

Electricity has risen by 300-500% in the UK, gas .ie petrol at the fuel pumps by 10-20%.

Electric cars are potentially more expensive to fill up than a standard petrol car.

For example according to this site the average fill-up costs £15 when the average kWh off-peak was 4.5p, today the average kWh is 75p.

Notice how the site uses average kWh of 28p to fool you but then below it clarifies that it based its estimate on 4.5p per kWh off-peak times to reach the £15 fill-up figure.

With 75p current electricity prices the cost to fill up your electric car is more than £200.

Link wrote:Charging an electric car at home costs about £15.10 for a full charge* and is the most convenient and cost-effective way to keep your car fully charged. Most drivers will charge their electric car overnight, waking up to a full battery every morning.

Average domestic electricity rate in the whole of the UK is about 28p per kWh**.
Fully charging a 60kWh electric car will cost around £15 (depending on where you live) and give you about 200 miles of range.
By switching to an electricity tariff designed specifically for EV drivers, like EDF's GoElectric Exclusive 35 you could reduce this to just 4.5p per kWh and charge up for under £5 while you sleep***.

*Costs calculated at 28p/kWh based on usable battery is ~54kWh (90%).

**Please note, energy prices vary and can go up and down. To find your current cost per kWh, please check your electricity bill or contact your provider.

***EV charging based on using a 7kW home charger and EDF’s GoElectric Exclusive 35 tariff at 4.5p/Kwh off-peak.
