Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Are you aware that there are two ways to charge your Tesla Model S Dual Motor? You can either utilize a regular wall socket or a charging station. However, when driving on the road, you can only access public charging through a charging station, as a conventional wall socket won't suffice. The charging speed of your Electric Vehicle (EV) relies on the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) used, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. The following table exhibits all the charging alternatives accessible for your Tesla Model S Dual Motor, as well as the approximate time it would take to charge the battery from empty to full.


In Europe, the method for charging an electric vehicle (EV) can vary from country to country. The type of connection to the grid utilized by each country also plays a crucial role. For instance, some countries use 1-phase connections predominantly, while others use 3-phase connections predominantly. Below is a table that lists all the possible modes of charging for a Tesla Model S Dual Motor. Please note that not all charging modes may be available in all countries. It is recommended to check with your local electric vehicle charging networks to confirm which charging options are accessible to you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Rapid charging plays a vital role in boosting the range of your electric vehicle by quickly adding the maximum distance possible. However, the charging power dwindles when the electric vehicle hits 80% state-of-charge. Therefore, conventional rapid charging methods do not exceed an 80% SOC. The charging rate you can achieve depends on the charging station you use and your electric vehicle's maximum charging power. A detailed table is available below, offering an all-inclusive guide to fast charge your Tesla Model S Dual Motor.

  • 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%
