The network of public charging stations continues to grow. It is now imperative to have a charging point at home or at work to make the most of your electric vehicle. We explain how much it can cost you to recharge at home.
How much does it cost to charge a Tesla Model Y?
At home, or on the go, here’s how to more accurately determine the cost of a charge.
The consumption of a Tesla Model Y varies depending on its model. It is on average 15kWh/100km and may fluctuate depending on the type of journey made or weather conditions. Overall, the price per kilometer of a Tesla Model Y charged at home is approx. three to four times lower than that of a thermal vehicledepending on the load moments.
Do you have a specific charging station installation project?
Call on the experts to install your charging station. You will benefit from the financial aid and tax credits offered by the government. Whether it’s for your electric or hybrid vehicle, now is definitely the time to set up your charging solution.
Thus, the cost of charging a Tesla Model Y with a battery capacity of 50 kWh is between 8 and 11 €. However, this amount may change depending on the type of vehicle, its batteries and the rates charged by your electricity supplier.
With a home charging station, a simple multiplication is enough to estimate the charging price of a Tesla Model Y, even if in our calculation we do not take into account the cost of purchasing your charging station and its installation. .
Cost of charging at home: practical case
To calculate correctly, you will need to take the total battery capacity of your Tesla Model Y (depending on your version) and multiply it by the price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) billed as part of your electricity subscription. The cost of fully recharging an electric vehicle depends on the capacity of its battery, ie the amount of energy it can store. Once on the road, at the same distance travelled, the cost of electricity remains much lower than that of petrol or diesel for combustion engines.
The cost of charging depending on the distance
Thus, a Tesla Model Y which consumes an average of 15 kWh per 100 kilometers will require, in France, €2.25 to achieve this distance, with a recharge made at home. In England, where the cost of electricity is slightly higher, it will cost you just over 3 euros.
Comparison with the price of gasoline
Whereas with a gasoline city car homologated at 6 liters per 100 kilometers, this distance costs more than 12 euros… The difference is not negligible!
Obviously, the best is to opt for a recharge during off-peak hours (if your subscription allows it) in order to further reduce the bill by recharging the vehicle at night. Moreover, charging while the other electrical devices are off is ideal in order to avoid overloading the network.
As an indication, the regulated electricity tariff in France is still one of the lowest in Europe. It is set at 0.145 euro per kilowatt hour in 2019. In England, the kilowatt hour costs 0.21 euro, while in Italy it is 0.23 euro. In Germany, the electricity tariff is much higher in 2020, with 0.30 euro/kWh.
