Superchargers could pay off big for Tesla

Present since 2012, Tesla Superchargers could become a particularly profitable activity for the manufacturer.

It has already been more than ten years since the Supercharger network was first developed in the United States. For the record, these are very fast charging stations, originally reserved for the brand’s cars but now open to all electric models. These are now present all over the world, and especially in Europe. In fact, we count no less than 10,000 just here, allowing owners of the brand’s cars to drive without worrying about recharging. Especially since the power is high, displayed at 250 kW.

A profitable business

Initially, the use of these terminals was completely free for the first customers. A way for the manufacturer to attract them and encourage them to go electric with a Tesla. But while the Model 3 was the best-selling car in the world at the beginning of the year, this promotional offer is no longer really relevant. And now, the charge is paid, and not really given. Especially for drivers of zero-emission cars from other brands, who have to pay a little more and who don’t have a monthly subscription. But in any case, it pays big for Tesla.

High income

According to specialist Dan Ives, financial analyst at Wedbush Securities, Tesla’s Supercharger business could then be even more profitable in the coming years for the brand. The latter considers that this could represent up to 6% of its total income. The rest would logically come from the sale of cars, which remains its primary activity at present. The firm also wants to get into the marketing of electricity, which could bring in big profits.
