How is Total Cost calculated?

toddklindt 3 years ago updated by l8bloomer 3 months ago 4

I'm looking at my monthly report and I'm not understanding how the Total Cost is calculated. How does it come to $61.66?

Since my supercharging is free shouldn't the Total Cost be $52.54?

Total cost is simply the kWh used while driving multiplied by your home charging rate.  It doesn't factor in kWh inputed from each source.  It's something that may be added in the future but would be very complicated to get right since energy used during idling and sleeping would also have to be factored in.

Would be nice to have this fixed, at least for defined/saved "road trips". I'm looking at a 10 day trip with almost exclusively supercharging, and it shows the total cost based on my home charging (???). Sort of makes that data point irrelevant (to the point it would be better not to show it than show something known to be wrong). 

This would be great to see actual cost including free charges along the way etc.

So since I do not charge at home that would make the total cost figure inaccurate.  Should the Total cost be calculated by adding only the charging sessions where you actually paid for charging be it a Supercharger, ChargPoint or home charging?
