Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Tesla Model 3. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Tesla has not released details about the on-board charger of the Model 3. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Car Uses||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||26h45m||8 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||16h45m||12 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||8h30m||25 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||230V / 3x16A||11 kW||5h45m||37 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 3x16A||11 kW †||5h45m||37 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Fastcharging is only possible at public charging points. Fastchargers enable longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. As fastcharges will only charge a battery up to 80% of its capacity at full speed, the optimal fastcharge is between 10% and 80% SoC. The fastcharge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for fastcharging the Tesla Model 3.
NOTE: Tesla has not released details about fast charging the Model 3. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely fast charging capabilities.

All about the Tesla Model 3
The Tesla Model 3 has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £32,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Tesla Model 3 is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Tesla Model 3 is £28,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Tesla Model 3 is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Tesla Model 3 is 150 kW (201 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 258 lb-ft. The Tesla Model 3 is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.9 seconds. The top speed is 130 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Tesla Model 3 has an estimated total capacity of 56 kWh. The usable capacity is 52 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 205 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 145 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 300 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours 45 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 8 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 25 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 26 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a Supercharger connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 70 kW, which charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 35 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 140 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Tesla Model 3 is about 250 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 160 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 355 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 170 Wh per mile.
The Tesla Model 3 emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
