Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Did you know that there are two ways to charge your Tesla Model 3? You can use a standard wall outlet or a dedicated charging station. However, when travelling, using a public station is necessary as a wall outlet will not provide enough power. The charging speed of your electric vehicle (EV) varies depending on the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) used, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. To help you, we have provided a table below that summarizes the available charging options for the Tesla Model 3, along with estimated times required to fully charge the battery from zero.


The manner in which electric vehicles (EVs) are charged in Europe differs from one country to another, as some countries depend largely on 1-phase grid connections while others use 3-phase connections. The table provided below shows all the charging options accessible for a Tesla Model 3. Nonetheless, the availability of certain charging modes may differ based on location. It is recommended to check with local electric vehicle charging networks to guarantee which charging options are accessible in your region.

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Quick charging is essential for allowing you to cover longer distances by providing the greatest possible range in the least amount of time. However, once the battery reaches 80% capacity, the charging speed decreases significantly, making it difficult to charge beyond this point with typical fast charging. The charging speed for an electric vehicle depends on the charging station used and the maximum charging power supported by the EV. To assist you, we have included a comprehensive outline of fast charging for the Tesla Model 3 in the chart below.

  • 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%
