It just got more expensive to charge your electric car using Evie public stations.
From July 10, 2023 the company will charge $0.50 per kWh for 50kW DC chargers (up $0.05) and $0.65 per kWh (up $0.05) for 350kW DC chargers.
“The adjustment to our pricing is a direct result of the rising cost of energy and the costs of providing electricity to these chargers,” Evie said in an email to customers.
“This adjustment will enable us to continue to invest in operating and growing our network.”
The new prices mean the best-selling Tesla Model Y RWD with its 60kWh battery pack will cost $30 to fully charge using a 50kW Evie charger, and $39 to charge at a 350kW Evie station.
The price hikes make Evie chargers more expensive than those of its rival, Chargefox.
Chargefox charges $0.45 per kWh at some 50kW stations, and $0.60 per kWh at its 350kW stations.
A recent jump in energy prices means it’s also now more expensive for electric car owners to charge their vehicles at home.
