Tesla announces the rates of recharge in Spain: 0,24 €/kWh


Network supercargadores Tesla today

we Already knew that this would happen, it was announced at the end of 2016, what didn’t know was what that was going to cost. In the case of the Spanish market, tarificará recharge in supercargadores Tesla to reason 24 cents per kWh. That means that in the worst case, a Model S P100D has arrived, towed with flat batteries cost you to recharge 24 euros, half of what it costs to fill a compact diesel!

The first thousands of customers of Tesla, which have supported the company with their money -starting with the reservations months before manufacturing the car – will continue to enjoy the recharging network of the company without any problem. Yes, abuse and stop the cars occupying a charging point unnecessarily after the reload, will pay a higher rate of occupancy.

In practice, the recharge payment will be made to all owners who ordered a Tesla in Spain through the official network that is riding right now. Those who already own a Tesla enrolled, thanks to an importer of european will not have to pay. Anyway, you only pay after a certain amount, the first 400 kWh per year are free of charge. Initially it was said that would affect the orders since the 1 January, there are 15 days of grace to a fortunate few.


Tesla has sought a fair solution to their customers. According to the company, the prices that are charged to customers will be below what they will actually pay Tesla for these refills, so that part of the cost is subsidized even when customers pay 24 cents per kWh. Recall that for this service are paid more than the electricity itself.

The annual credit of 400 kWh free is not cumulative

If we compare this rate with the price of the kilowatt hour in the Spanish electrical system, does not come twice, are almost 10 cents more. Obviously the difference increases considerably if we compare the quick recharge rate supervalle the load early in the morning, quietly, in a household outlet linked to our electrical contract.

it appeared to be very naive one who thought that Tesla was going to pay from its own funds the refills that make all the owners for years. Is a lot of money. With these measures, aims to rationalise the use of the supercargadores: are to enable long distance travel with a minimum stop time, not to recharge the car for free, as usual. This phenomenon has occurred several times and in countries widely separated from each other.


All owners of a Model 3 will have to pay for the recharge once you exceed your annual quota of 400 kWh free

The recharging network ultra-fast Tesla has eight locations in Spain today. When the Model S, Model X and Model 3 will be sold officially in our country, the network will have increased a little. The goal of Tesla is that they can go through the main routes, without large pauses, or which can be always a supercharger to the range in a reasonable distance.

Some charging points are located in hotels for maximum comfort of the travellers

In some countries, instead of tarificarse recharge per kilowatt-hour make per minute, there are two rates depending on the occupation, or the speed at which it is charging the vehicle. This is not the case of Spain, yes for example the one in Germany. The company does not distinguish a stretch schedule of lower cost, so doing it at night makes no economic advantage.

¿how much are equivalent to 400 kWh? In terms of Tesla, something more than 1,600 kilometres free per year. It is a very reasonable even for a couple of long trips of vacation within the Spanish geography. Face to leave the country, you need to look at the price of the refills out. For example, in France would be us $ 0.20/kWh, in Germany 0,17 or 0,34 €/minute in function of what is mentioned above (in the worst case, for 40.8 euros/hour).

For more information, see the rates for Tesla in its official website.


In the countries with tariff-per-minute recharge costs a lot less if it is a charger where there is already another Tesla plugged in the first cable

Is it economical to pay the electricity to 24 cents per kilowatt hour?

Yes and no. With respect to recharge at home, yes, it is more expensive, but the recharge is much faster, which compensates fully. It is impossible to recharge 80% of battery just as large (60 kWh onwards) in just half an hour with a take home, the installation would be burning from not having measures of limitation of power. If we compare it with a car of conventional engine, does not.

as economical as a diesel 4-cylinder

A Tesla Model S can consume quietly 20 kWh of electricity per 100 kilometers, or what is the same, less than 5 euros per 100 kilometers. No model in the segment And is able to offer a cost competitive, unless it is the best diesel in its class in efficient driving, and with prices of oil pulling to low. In other words, in the worst case, comes out as cheap as travelling with a diesel good going soft.

drivers Tesla will not have to think about the change, as if it were a toll road. The cost of the recharge will be recorded automatically in the credit card registered in the system, a process painless and colorless. For those who purchase cars of this price level (the Model S and Model X exceed 60,000 euros) to pay for recharges at the rate of 5 euros per 100 km is the chocolate of the parrot. Even for a Spanish middle-class is a cost perfectly bearable, few models allow you to travel for so little money (with LPG/CNG, smaller models, less powerful…)
