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 Y 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 Y. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||38 hours||7 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||23h45m||11 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||11h45m||23 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||8 hours||34 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW †||8 hours||34 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 Y Long Range.
Tesla has not released details about rapid charging the Model Y. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.
- Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
- Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point 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 †||73 min||150 mph|
|Supercharger v2 Shared (75 kW DC)||75 kW||65 kW †||50 min||220 mph|
|Supercharger v2 (150 kW DC)||145 kW †||110 kW †||30 min||370 mph|

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.
All about the Tesla Model Y Long Range
The Tesla Model Y Long Range has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £50,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Tesla Model Y Long Range is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Tesla Model Y Long Range is £47,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Tesla Model Y Long Range is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Tesla Model Y Long Range is 211 kW (283 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 307 lb-ft. The Tesla Model Y Long Range is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.8 seconds. The top speed is 130 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Tesla Model Y Long Range has an estimated total capacity of 75 kWh. The usable capacity is 74 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 270 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.
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 23 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 38 hours.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS Supercharger connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 145 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 110 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 185 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Tesla Model Y Long Range is about 270 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 148 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.
The Tesla Model Y 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.
