In this video, I show you the 10-80% charging speed and time at home for my Tesla Model 3 with an 82kWh LG battery.
For many people, some of the biggest doubts or downsides for EVs are related to the charging time and also the range anxiety (worrying about not having enough battery to get to the destination).
It’s true that electric cars take longer to charge than it takes a conventional car to refuel. And if you charge at home, it takes even longer (several hours).
On the other hand, electricity is a lot less expensive than gasoline or diesel and the car will charge at home without you’re intervention, while parked in your garage or driveway. Instead of taking it to a charging station, you’ll be having dinner, exercising, or sleeping. A great option to charge is during the night.
European drivers cover an average of around 30 km a day. That means that for a big part of the population if they can charge a car at home, it will be easy to keep their car with more than enough charge for their daily errands.
These were my charging conditions:
– Around 3kW (230V * 13A);
– Sentry Mode was on all the time.
Bear in mind that this Model 3 has a usable battery capacity of 76 kWh. That means it’s an above-average capacity and that results in a longer than average charging time.
