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 Long Range. 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||37 hours||8 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||23 hours||12 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||11h30m||24 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||230V / 3x16A||11 kW||7h45m||36 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 3x16A||11 kW †||7h45m||36 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 Long Range.
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 Long Range
The Tesla Model 3 Long Range has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £40,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Tesla Model 3 Long Range 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 Long Range is £36,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Tesla Model 3 Long Range is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range is 192 kW (257 hp). The maximum torque is 303 lb-ft. The Tesla Model 3 Long Range is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.4 seconds. The top speed is 140 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range has an estimated total capacity of 76 kWh. The usable capacity is 72 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 280 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 200 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 410 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 7 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 11 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 37 hours.
Rapid charging is possible through a Supercharger connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 90 kW, which charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 40 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 195 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range is about 255 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 157 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 360 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 175 Wh per mile.
The Tesla Model 3 Long Range 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.
