How Fast Can You Charge A New Tesla Model S At Home?
New Tesla Model S
The chart shown below shows estimates for charging a standard range Plus 60kWh battery pack for a Tesla Model 3 either at home (on the home charging fee) or using a fast charging station. Based on an estimate of actual range, Tesla Model 3s charging costs are 4-6 PS/mile depending on actual power use, with costs depending on charging type. Since those numbers are different than we saw in-vehicle, we would expect to see more variance in total charging costs, along with cost per mile.
Using the same information on average per-kWh charges for home usage, we can work out what the Model Ss battery would cost to charge between 0% and 100%.
If we multiply the Model X batterys capacity by the average electricity costs, it will end up being around $14 in total (100 x $0.14 = $14) to charge a Model X battery from 0 % to 100%. The cost to fully charge varies depending on model and battery capacity, but using an average US price of $0.14/kWh, Electrek calculated most models will cost $4-$5 to charge up to 100 miles, as long as you are charging at home. For American drivers, who on average drive around 37 miles a day, chargers providing 20-30 miles of range for an hour of charging are ideal (6.6-10kW power delivery).
Depending on the EVs energy source and battery capacity, drivers may charge the vehicle in just 30 minutes. Average daily miles are charged within 2 hours, and even an almost-empty 100-kWh battery pack can fully recharge over the course of a night. For instance, the Tesla Model 3 Performance has a 11.5kW charger and 80.5kWh battery that will take about 7 hours to charge completely.
Depending on the Model and version of the Tesla you own, fully charging the cars empty battery could take anywhere from nine to 22 hours. Depending on the Tesla model and version, charging an empty Tesla battery to 100% could take between four and eight days. How long a Tesla takes to charge depends on what model you have, which charger you are using, and how much charge is left in the battery when it starts charging.
We are going to look at how long it takes a Tesla to charge, depending on which model you have and which charger you are using. To summarize, there are many factors that come into play when trying to determine exactly how long your shiny Tesla can charge. To really get an idea of what time your Tesla might take, or might not, we wanted to begin by taking a short course in different charging levels and how they differ.
This is an enormous factor that has to do with the amount of time that your electric vehicle takes to charge, whether or not you are actually charging your Tesla. EVs can be charged using your homes conventional electric outlets, but this method takes considerable time. Tesla owners, in fact, can recharge using a regular 120V domestic plug using a trickle-charge adapter.
NEMA 14-50 Charger For Tesla The Teslas NEMA 14-50 Charger connects to a 240-volt wall socket, like the kind used for your clothes dryer or other appliances. Specifically, since the 240-volt outlets utilize more high-power outlets, the Tesla NEMA 14-50 adapter will charge the Tesla considerably quicker than a NEMA 5-15 charger. No matter which Model and version of Tesla you own, charging an empty vehicle battery may take between nine to 22 hours. The slowest charging you will encounter is simply plugging the Tesla into the NEMA 5-15 plug and a wall outlet.
The Tesla Supercharger is your fastest charging option when you are out of the house, and allows you to recharge your vehicle for up to 200 miles in 15 minutes. At maximum speeds, a supercharger typically can add 162 to 200 miles in 15 minutes, depending on your Tesla car. Currently, most Tesla Superchargers can now add up to 200 miles of range in only 15 minutes, depending on charging speed.
Tesla says they will be charging at speeds up to 3 miles an hour, giving them just shy of the typical workweek time for zero-to-full charging of the Model Y. This is Teslas slowest, and generally least efficient charging option, generally providing 3-5 miles of range for each charge hour.
Interestingly, Teslas wall plug charges as fast as the Destination Charger as much as 44 miles of added range per hour. Interestingly, Model 3 in Long Range form can recharge up to 353 miles an hour quicker than a standard range Plus at 263 with a wall connector. Overall, Long Range narrowly edges the Plaid in terms of per-mile costs, particularly if you are using Level 1 and Level 2 charging options.
Teslas website does not specify exactly how quickly a Tesla Model Y can charge using either NEMA 5-15 or NEMA 14-50 chargers, so we are going to use the charging rates for your Tesla Model X, just to have a rough idea on how long a Model Y charge with the plug-in connector takes.
If you are feeling particularly Techie Musk-y and opt to buy a Tesla wall plug, it should take you just under eight hours to get Model Y charging at home. Just as different models of clothes dryers require varying amounts of time to dry clothes, so too do different electric chargers require different amounts of time to charge the vehicle. The max charge speed for your vehicle is fixed, so you do not lose time charging the battery with a higher-power charger.
According to EnergySage, the average charge for fully charging your Tesla is $13.96, although the cost could be expected to vary between $9.62 and $18.30, depending on model.
