If this is the true cost of using the Electrify America system, non-Tesla EVs will never reach mainstream users except for commuters who can home charge.
When I bought my first electric car back in 2017 I enjoyed low charging costs at home, great acceleration and long range capability, I still enjoy all of these things but upon purchase of my Hyundai Kona EV and a couple long range trips I feel that I have to speak up about the elephant in the room. EV fast charging stations are NOT cheap... At all. I charged my Kona EV at an electrify America charger yesterday and was billed over $47 for a charge that started at 50%. Just to put that into perspective that is approximately 0.47 cents a mile, which is confusing at best. My old Jeep Wrangler was less per mile then that.
The breakdown after I finally got the one station of the 4 stalls I used to work is as follows:
Session fee: $1 Charging: $47.04 Idling: $12.80
Total energy delivered: 25.32 kWh. Charging cost: 0.69 cents a minute. Max power: 150kW.
