Recharging your electric car costs three times less than a full tank of gasoline at these Tesla terminals

Tesla has just dropped the price of charging electric cars (including competing brands) with its Superchargers. Enough to make recharging even cheaper than at home. And radically cheaper than refueling a thermal car.

Tesla likes to play yo-yo with the price of charging electric cars connected to its Superchargers. This is normal, since the American manufacturer tries to offer the fairest price in relation to the wholesale electricity market. The good news for customers is that when electricity is cheaper, Tesla passes this price on to its terminals.

The other good news is that these new ultra-attractive prices are available to all electric car drivers, whether they drive Tesla vehicles or those from other competing manufacturers.

A cheaper price than at home

In detail, it is possible to benefit from a rate which can drop to 18 cents per kWh at certain stations, such as that of Evry in the Paris suburbs at certain times of the day, as Felix Hamer points out on X (ex-Twitter). Which gives around 3.2 euros to travel 100 km.

Be careful, however, this price rises to 39 cents at this same station during the most popular times (between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m.). Above all, these prices are valid for owners of a Tesla.

For others, you will either have to pay more per kWh (respectively 27 to 53 cents), or take the Tesla subscription at 12.99 euros per month which allows you to pay the same rates as the American manufacturer's customers.

Remember, however, that prices vary from one charging station to another on Superchargers. In Mérignac, for example, it costs between 30 and 33 cents per kWh depending on the time of day for Tesla customers (and subscribers), compared to 39 to 43 cents for others.

Much more attractive prices than the competition

These prices remain very attractive, since Ionity and Fastned are at 59 cents per kWh when Total Energies announces 62 cents for ultra-fast terminals. At home, the base price is 25 cents, although it is possible to go down to around 13 cents with special offers like EDF Tempo or ZenFlex.

For a thermal car, remember that the cost per 100 km is around 10 to 12 euros. Compare with the 2 to 12 euros for an electric car, depending on the charging location (home or public terminal) and the network used.
