Tesla’s famous Superchargers have received some modifications. In particular at the level of the tariffs applied by the 100% electric manufacturer and that will not please some.
In some areas of the United States, Superchargers bill by the minute rather than by kWh. We will therefore be interested in those which take into account the duration of the recharge. These were divided into two categories. A first for those whose power is equal to or less than 60 kW and a second for terminals capable of developing 61 kW or more.
Now things have changed a bit and the categories went from 2 to 4. The first category does not change but the second is now between 61 kW and 100 kW. Then, from 101 to 180, we go to category 3. And for higher recharges, we therefore go to category 4. Needless to say that the more powerful the terminal, the faster the recharging will be.
Advantageous? Yes and no
Owners of the latest models can already look forward to this change. And for good reason, they are the only ones who can use the new Superchargers V3 terminals capable of charging to 250 kW. What to recover 120 km of autonomy in just 5 minutes.
But why is it more advantageous for them? Because before, it was the same price whether the recharge is fast or slow. From now on, the slowest will also see their prices increase even if they will still pay less.
For the moment, these tests of the new price list are reserved for the United States.
