Did you know that you have two options when it comes to charging your Tesla Model S Plaid? You can either use a standard wall outlet or a specialized charging station. While a wall outlet may suffice for daily use, public charging while on the move can only be done through a charging station. Nevertheless, the rate of EV charging depends on the type of charging station or EVSE utilized, as well as the EV's maximum charging capacity. To assist you, we have prepared a table below that details all of the charging options available for your Tesla Model S Plaid, as well as an estimated time to fully charge the battery from empty.
Charging electric vehicles (EVs) differs in Europe from country to country based on their available connections. Some countries use a 1-phase connection, while others depend on a 3-phase connection. Below is a table that demonstrates all the feasible methods to charge a Tesla Model S Plaid. However, it is essential to keep in mind that some of these charging modes may not be available in certain countries. Therefore, we advise consulting your nearby EV charging networks to verify which options are accessible to you.
Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Wall Plug (2.3 kW)
230V / 1x10A
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)
230V / 1x16A
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)
230V / 1x32A
3-phase 16A (11 kW)
400V / 3x16A
3-phase 32A (22 kW)
400V / 3x16A
11 kW †
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Fast Charging (10 → 80%)
Rapid charging is crucial for extending the distance of your trip by adding a substantial amount of range in the shortest time possible. However, as the state-of-charge reaches 80%, the charging rate significantly decreases. Consequently, a typical rapid charge seldom exceeds 80% SoC. The speed of charging an electric vehicle depends on both the charging station utilized and the maximum charging power that the EV can handle. The following table gives a detailed summary of rapid charging the Tesla Model S Plaid.
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%
