Whether you are researching which electric car model to purchase or looking to decide the best way to power your electric vehicle, knowing the facts about an electric car model can help you make the best decision for saving time, money, and energy. Here we answer a few common questions about EV charging a Tesla S model.

How far can I drive on a single charge?

The exact driving range of a Tesla S depends on a few different factors including area conditions, model year, and the type of car battery used. The 2012 EPA range for a Tesla S using a 60 kilowatt battery was 208 miles per charge while an 85 kilowatt battery provided a 265 mile driving range. According to Tesla, the latest Model S car have a driving range of anywhere from 265 to 337 miles when fully charged.

What is the best way to charge a Tesla S?

Most electric vehicles come with a standard Level 1 charger. While these portable chargers are easy to connect, they can take anywhere from 18 to 48 hours to fully recharge your car. Unless you are okay with having your car sit in the garage for a few days while it powers up, you may wish to consider upgrading to a Level 2 EV charger.

With Level 2 charging, you can power your electric car at home overnight while taking advantage of low utility costs using off-peak hours. Level 2 chargers use a 240-volt system that is professionally installed at your home. This system can recharge your car in as little as 6 hours. Simply plug in your car each night and it will be fully charged and ready to drive the next morning.
