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 Performance. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||38 hours||8 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||23h45m||12 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||11h45m||24 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||8 hours||36 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW †||8 hours||36 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge 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 rapid charging the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance.
- Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
- Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
- Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Avg. Power||Time||Rate|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||50 kW||45 kW||1h15m||170 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||100 kW||90 kW †||35 min||340 mph|
|CCS Supercharger (145 kW DC)||120 kW †||90 kW †||35 min||340 mph|
|CCS (175 kW DC)||120 kW †||90 kW †||35 min||340 mph|
† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle
NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
All about the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance
The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £63,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. 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 Performance is £60,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance is 340 kW (456 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 471 lb-ft. The Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds. The top speed is 155 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance has an estimated total capacity of 80 kWh. The usable capacity is 74 kWh (estimate). A range of about 285 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 205 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 415 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 8 hours. 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 45 minutes and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 38 hours.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS Supercharger connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 120 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 90 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 35 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 195 miles of range.
The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range Performance is about 255 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 156 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 Performance 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.
