Do you have a source for this? EA claims that their stations cost $1M or more to build.
EA uses 'station' to mean location; I use the word to mean a plug.
So that is 4x - 8x of the difference. Even so, the EA build-out is quite a bit more expensive.
There are a few, somewhat sub-optimal references to the Supercharger cost. The one I like the most (and which also is ballpark with the other estimates) is from Elon Musk who reported that 170M had been spent on the Supercharger deployment as of 2016.
