Tesla Model S Charging
With ludicrous acceleration, revolutionary battery life and fully functioning auto pilot, the Tesla Model S is the car that is challenging the way we think about cars.
Electric range: 340 km (Model S 60 - EPA) to 507 km (Model S P100D - EPA)
Plug Standard: Type 2 - IEC 62196 (see plug types for more info)
Maximum AC charge rate: 24 A 3-Phase (High Power Charger Upgrade)
Time to fully recharge (at 16 A 3-Phase): 6.5 hours (Model S 60) to 9.5 hours (Model S P100D)
Charging Station Options
Every Tesla Model S comes standard with a Tesla Wall Connector so you do not need to worry about finding a charging station. The Tesla unit will be capable of up to 24 A 3-Phase, so even if the car is upgraded you can still use the same charger. The Tesla Wall Connector is sleek and one of the best looking units on the market. However, that this unit is only capable of charging cars produced by Tesla and is not compatible with and other electric vehicles.
Additionally the car also comes with a Universal Mobile Connector (UMC) which allows the car to charge from different ports while you're on the go. For example it allows charging from a 10 A power point all the way up to 3-Phase sockets which can provide 16 A 3-phase charging (requires additional equipment, refer to the where to charge page for additional information on 3-Phase socket charging).
The cost of charging a Tesla Model S will be cheaper than a internal combustion engine car. You can roughly estimate your weekly cost at out cost of charging page.
