It’s getting more expensive to charge your electric car using Evie public station.
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.
“Our price adjustments are a direct result of increased energy costs and the cost of providing electricity to these chargers,” Evie said in an email to customers.
“This adjustment will allow us to continue to invest in operating and expanding our network.”
The new prices mean the best-selling Tesla Model Y RWD with a 60kWh battery pack will cost $30 to fully charge using the 50kW Evie charger, and $39 to charge at the 350kW Evie station.
The price hike makes the Evie charger more expensive than its competitor, Chargefox.
Chargefox charges $0.45 per kWh at its 50kW station and $0.60 per kWh at its 350kW station.
The recent surge in energy prices means it is also now more expensive for electric car owners to charge their vehicles at home.
