Tesla Launches Supercharger Membership for Non-Tesla Vehicles at $0.99/month [Update]
Tesla has launched Supercharger memberships, priced from $0.99 per month in the United States, according to @SawyerMerritt.
A screenshot of the Tesla app shows two plans available:
- Pay Per Use: Pay as you go, access to Supercharger network
- Membership: $0.99/month (USD), access to Supercharger network, lower price per kWh
Tesla says a separate membership is required for each Tesla account, with a limit of 5 Supercharger charging sessions per day for each membership.
Merritt was able to sign up for the non-Tesla vehicle Supercharging membership, despite not owning a non-Tesla EV in his account–and it worked.
The pricing at $0.99 USD per month seems low, when compared to other charging networks such as Electrify America at $4 USD per month, points out Merritt.
You can access the Membership section in the Tesla app, by tapping your profile photo, then selecting ‘Account’ and then ‘Charging’. This screen is not showing in Canada.
The non-Tesla Supercharger pilot launched back in November and currently is available in France, the Netherlands, Norway, UK, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. There is no mention of the United States yet on the FAQ website.
Back in July, the White House mentioned Tesla planned to open up its Supercharger network to non-Tesla vehicles in the U.S., beginning in 2022. Non-Tesla EVs will require an adapter to charge their vehicles and this will likely be included at Superchargers.
Update August 16, 9:56pm PT: the Membership option has disappeared from the Tesla mobile app. Looks like it was launched by accident.
