When talking about electric vehicles, the question of purchase price, often important, is often mentioned. We talk a little less often about the cost of reloading. It has to be said that it is much cheaper than for combustion engine cars. There are, however, many differences depending on where you are in the world.
The British website Compare The Market conducted a study that provides an overview of the electricity and reloading costs of a Tesla country country by country. This comparison is based on a S model equipped with a 100 kWh battery. These prices depend mainly on the organization of electrical systems and are not related to the general welfare of the countries.
France is in the middle of the ranking
Thus, Chile is the country to recharge the cost of Tesla the cheapest, it will cost $ 2.70 to travel 100 miles (160 kilometers). Instead, it will pay $ 13.13 to travel the same distance to Denmark, the country where the study is the most expensive reloading. This is due to the fact that renewable energy sources are particularly developed, especially in wind power, but their production costs are now higher than other energy sources.
With an amount of $ 7.34 per 100 miles, France is in the middle of the table. This figure is relatively reliable as the French electricity system is concentrated, which is not the case for example in the United States where it is peripheral. As a result, in the American case, data that is quite questionable according to the site CleanTechnica.
The question of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles remains, in any case, a major issue in France. Beyond the big announcements, electric car users face many difficulties on a daily basis, who do not remember the problems faced by Internet pioneers.
