tesla superchargerLike we told you before, anyone who orders a Model S or X  from her open out will have to pay at the electric pump.  Late last week, Tesla announced the pricing details on what they're gonna charge for supercharger fees.  

The details mentioned on their site are as follows:

  • 400 kWh (~1,000 miles) of Supercharger credits are awarded annually.
  • For usage above the complimentary annual credits provided, a small fee applies.
  • In North America, pricing is fixed within each state or province. Internationally, pricing is fixed within each country. All prices include taxes and fees.
  • Where possible, owners are billed per kWh (kilowatt-hour), which is the most fair and simple method. In other areas, we bill for the service per minute.
  • When billing per minute, there are two tiers to account for changes in charging speeds, called “tier 1” and “tier 2”.
    • Tier 1 applies while cars are charging at or below 60 kW and tier 2 applies while cars are charging above 60 kW. Tier 1 is half the cost of tier 2.
    • Tier 1 also applies anytime your vehicle is sharing Supercharger power with another car.
  • Supercharger pricing information may be viewed on the 17” touchscreen and is summarized below.

If you want to know exactly how much based on your state, your answer lies below.  

$0.20 per minute above 60 kW
$0.10 per minute at or below 60 kW

So there you go.  On average it will be around $12-$15 on average depending on where you live.
