Free electric car charging: the good world ends at Lidl’s Czech and Slovak stores

In Slovakia, Lidl’s communications manager announced that from August 15, it will be necessary to pay for the use of chargers in store parking lots, writes the Electric cars portal. The possibility of charging electric cars for free will therefore cease, but the prices have not yet been published. All we know is that different pricing is planned for AC and DC charging.

Lidl decided to take a similar step in the Czech Republic. The date of the introduction of the payment system there is not yet known, but it is already known from official sources that at the start the charge for AC charging will be 5.9 CZK/kWh (approx. 95 HUF), while for DC charging it will be 6.9 crowns (approx. 110 HUF). will have to pay. 2,000 crowns will be blocked on the customer’s bank card when charging is started.

In addition to the rise in energy prices, the Czech move was justified by the fact that the increase in prices began to attract many motorists to the free charging points, which, in turn, caused Lidl customers to drop out of the free charging option.
