Tesla Model 3 Performance Home Charging Guide

Smaller and more affordable than its siblings, the Model S and Model X, Tesla’s Model 3 wants to take the electric car revolution to the masses. Don’t let the minimalist car interior fool you – the Model 3 includes one of the best in-car entertainment systems around with its 15-inch touchscreen taking centre-stage. The Model 3 Performance is the quickest in the range with a 0-60mph time of just 3.2 seconds. Safety is almost unrivalled too, with the Model 3 achieving a perfect 5-star rating from Euro NCAP.

Charging the Tesla Model 3 Performance is pretty painless, taking about 11 hours and 45 minutes to charge from empty to full, although a full charge is rarely needed. A dedicated 7.5kW charge point (like those below) will add about 30 miles of range per hour, so a simple overnight top-up using the Tesla Wall Connector or another charger will usually be enough. Rapid charging is quick using the CCS connection, with a 10-80% charge possible within 30 minutes, and getting around the UK is super easy with Tesla's supercharger network.
