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 S Standard Range. 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||38h30m||6 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||24 hours||10 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||12 hours||21 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||8h15m||31 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x24A||16.5 kW †||5h30m||46 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 S Standard Range.
- 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%

All about the Tesla Model S Standard Range
The Tesla Model S Standard Range has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £75,500 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £76,350. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Tesla Model S Standard Range 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 S Standard Range is £72,850.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Tesla Model S Standard Range is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Tesla Model S Standard Range is 245 kW (329 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 387 lb-ft. The Tesla Model S Standard Range is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. The top speed is 140 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Tesla Model S Standard Range has a total capacity of 100 kWh. The usable capacity is 75 kWh (estimate). A range of about 245 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 180 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 350 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 16.5 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours 30 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 12 hours and a charge rate of 21 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 38 hours 30 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a 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 100 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 35 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 170 miles of range.
The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Tesla Model S Standard Range is about 305.0 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 132 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 415.0 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 210.0 Wh per mile.
The Tesla Model S Standard 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.
