Charging at home.
Because residential charging is convenient and inexpensive, most electric vehicle drivers do more than 80% of their charging at home. Charging in a single-family home, usually in a garage, allows you to take advantage of low, stable residential electricity rates. The cost to run your car over the course of a year can be less than running an air conditioner.
For the best home charging experience, Tesla recommends installing a Wall Connector. To charge at home, you simply plug in your car overnight using the Wall Connector, and wake up ready to go with a fully charged battery.
Alternatively, adapters for 110 and 240 volt outlets are included as standard equipment with all new Tesla cars. This provides approximately 2 to 4 miles and up to 31 miles of range per hour of charge respectively, depending on the car. Home charging allows you to save time and money, giving you a convenience you can’t get with gas powered vehicles and the best part is you never have to visit a gas station again.
Charging on the road.
With access to tens of thousands of Superchargers around the world, you are never too far away from convenient, cheap, fast charging. Just enter a destination in your navigation screen, and your Tesla will automatically route you to Superchargers along the way.
At Superchargers, you can enjoy nearby amenities or just sit back and relax in your Tesla. You can also view and control your charge from the Tesla app. You will then get notified when ready to continue your trip.
Tesla owners can enjoy the freedom of local and long-distance travel at an affordable price with the largest charging network in the world. To put the affordability of Supercharging into perspective, customers will pay about $15 for a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and about $120 from Los Angeles to New York.
