Tesla reverses charging prices hike

Electric-car maker Tesla has reversed a decision to drastically increase prices for its charging stations, following a backlash from customers.

Owners had complained the price rise – estimated to be around 30% – would mean electric cars risked becoming far less competitive than petrol ones.

The planned price rises will now be reduced by an average of 10% globally.

Tesla said it had listened to drivers and taken their feedback seriously.

Initially Tesla users were allowed to use its network of charging stations – called Superchargers – for free. That changed to a model that offered some free credits but since November 2018, all new Tesla vehicles have had to pay per use, unless they were bought with a referral code which came with six months of free use of Supercharging stations.
