Here's how long it takes to recharge each electric vehicle ...

It's beneficial for the environment to use electric automobiles instead of internal combustion engines.

People should consider buying an electric automobile due to the lack of charging stations and charging times.

Scientists and businesses collaborate to create faster charging times and more common charging stations, such as roads that can charge electric vehicles, batteries that provide 250 miles (400 km) of range in ten minutes of charging time, or regulations that mandate charging stations for new construction in the United Kingdom.

Let's take a look at how long it takes to charge different Tesla models fully.

The level of charging is increasing.

Tesla offers the possibility to connect a charging unit to your home at three different charging levels. Levels 1 and 2 of AC charging, which provides 120V and 240V, are called NEMA 5-15 chargers, respectively.

The Tesla Supercharger network is a collection of Tesla proprietary charging stations that have been designed and implemented to provide the best charging time.

Level 1 AC (120V outlet at home) takes 20 to 40 hours, AC Level 2 (Third-party chargers/Tesla chargers/Tesla home charger) takes 8 to 12 hours, and Level 3 DCFC (Tesla Supercharger) takes 15 to 25 minutes to charge a Tesla fully. However, due to their huge direct current, Superchargers are not recommended for daily charging.

It's now time to list the charging times for each Tesla model, as well as all the charging options.

Tesla Model 3

Model 3 Performance, Model 3 Long Range, and Model 3 Standard Range Plus have a battery range of 263 miles, while Model 3 Performance and Model 3 Long Range both have a battery range of 322 miles. Model 3 can be fully charged in 7 to 12 hours using NEMA 14-50 chargers, and 7 to 8 hours by a wall connector.

Tesla Model X

Tesla's first SUV, the Model X, is available in two versions; the Performance version has a range of 341 miles (548 km), while the Long Range has a total of 371 miles (597 km). Model X can be fully charged in 18 hours using NEMA 14-50 chargers, and 8 to 8 and a half hours by a wall connector.

Tesla Model Y

Teslas latest and most compact SUV, Model Y, is available in three different versions: Standard Range, Long Range, and Performance. The Model Y is capable of charging up to 3 miles per hour with NEMA 5-15 chargers, while the Supercharger can be fully charged in 11 to 12 hours with a wall connector.

Tesla Model S

Tesla's Model S has the most extended range of any Tesla, and it comes in three different versions: Model S Performance, Model S Long Range, and Model S Plaid.

Each Model S version has a range of over 300 miles (480 km) with Model S Performance coming in at 387 miles (622 km) and Model S Long Range at 402 miles (646 km). However, drivers must pay attention to their speedometers as the vehicle should not go above 70 mph (112 kph) and use low resistance tires. Model S can be fully charged in 17 to 18 hours with NEMA 14-50 chargers and 9 hours by a wall connector.
