Tesla to stop offering home chargers with its cars

The Level 2 home charger from Tesla is now available for US$ 400, while the basic Level 1 charging unit is offered at US$ 275.

Tesla will stop offering charging equipment as standard with its vehicles. Going forward, customers of Tesla will either have to purchase the home-charging equipment separately or make use of the brand's supercharging network.

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce the same, while blaming "low usage statistics" as the reason for its discontinuation.

Every electric vehicle produced until 2022 has been offered with a home-charging set as part of its standard equipment. Until recently, Tesla cars came with dual-voltage portable (mobile) chargers. However, the American EV maker has now discontinued the practice, forcing customers to make use of its public charging network or pay extra for a home charger.

Tesla has now reduced the prices of its home-charging station by US$75. The Level 2 home charger from Tesla is now available for US$ 400, while the basic Level 1 charging unit is offered at US$ 275.
