    Charging at home

    The easiest way to charge your Tesla is at home. Simply plug it in overnight and you’re good to go in the morning.

    Each Tesla comes with a standard adapter for a regular wall outlet.

    However, charging your battery this way is very slow. So you’re better off investing in a Tesla Wall Connector. This charger can reach speeds up to 44 mph.

    Charging on the road

    Even long distance travel is possible, thanks to charging stations on the road. Tesla has more than 1.600 Supercharger stations that charge your empty battery to 80% in less than half an hour.

    Furthermore, there are several independent fast chargers. For example the Ionity network in Europe.

    Regenerative braking

    There’s even a third way to charge you Tesla: regenerative braking. Whenever you move your foot off the accelerator, the car will start slowing down (almost as if you’re braking lightly) because the motor turns the torque into energy for the battery. So if you’re driving down a hill, you might end up with more range than at the top of the hill.
