Another new increase for the price of charging stations… which will undoubtedly fuel the debates between the pros and the anti-electrics. This time, it is the operator Allego which is reviewing its prices upwards.
At the beginning of 2022, Allego made its debut on French territory through a first fast charging station with 5 terminals, including three fast chargers oscillating from 150 to 300 kW. This network joins TotalEnergies, Fastned, Ionity, Tesla… This Dutch company founded in 2013 now has more than 30,000 charging points across Europe, both dedicated to electric cars, electric motorcycles, but also buses and trucks. . In France, Allego can also be found in the car parks of Géant Casino, and also Carrefour.
A sharp increase in prices
For its debut in France, Allego charged €0.40/kWh for 50 kW pitches, compared to €0.55/kWh for the most powerful terminals. From 1ᵉʳ September, the rates change: charging stations with alternating current go up to 22 kW, the rate here is €0.50/kWh instead of 40. If you opt for direct current, up to 50 kW , the price is €0.69/kWh instead of 55. For very fast charges, above 50 kW, the rate will be 79 cents per kWh. With this tariff per kilowatt hour, the cost per 100 km is 13 to 20 euros on the motorway, depending on your electric vehicle. For a Model 3 SR+ (Propulsion), for example, which consumes around 18 kW on the highway, you will have to pay a little more than 14 euros.
Electricity price increases continue to drive rate increases among major operators. Tesla regularly increases its prices, but so does everyone else. All this comes at a time when access to raw materials is becoming more expensive and more complicated, and when the shortage of components is not over. This pushes players in the sector to drive up prices, from electricity to the final vehicle.
