    Cost of using Tesla Supercharger stations

    One of the fastest ways of charging your Tesla is via a Supercharger. Currently, there are more than 1,600 Supercharger stations in North America, Europa, Asia and the Middle East.

    At most Tesla Supercharging stations in the US, the rate is $0.28 per kWh. Charging costs in other locations may vary.

    So if you have a Model S with a 100 kWh battery, you pay $28 for a full charge.

    Note: some Tesla’s come with free supercharging. 

    Cost of charging at home

    You can also install a Tesla charging station at home.

    The charging cost depends on the cost of electricity where you live, and can vary from $0.08 per kWh up to $0.18.

    Let’s say that you pay $0.13 kWh for electricity in your home. In that case, you can fully charge a 100 kWh battery for $13. That’s half what you pay at a Supercharger.

    And when you have solar panels, this price will decrease even further. You could even drive for free.
