How much does it cost to charge Tesla at the charging station?

The charging cost depends on the charging type if you are using the free charge offered by the Tesla charging station or another charging station for this model. Also the capacity of the battery of the car you choose.

Suppose you have the model 3 equipped with 100 kWh battery. And you pay 13 cents per kWh, which is the national average cost of electricity in the United States. The price will be $13 to charge fully. Since the vehicle has a range of 295 miles, the cost per mile is calculated at 4.4 cents or 4.40 cents per 100 miles by car. The cost will depend on the prices of the utility plan.

What if you charge the Tesla Model 3 using a home solar charging station?

You can reduce the charging cost if you install a home solar system because of the current cost of houses with solar panels Only 7 cents per kilowatt-hour.

However, the costs of installing your home solar charging station may be higher or lower than the average.

How much does it cost when using a Level 2 charging to charge Tesla Model 3?

The charging of electric vehicles at that kind of charging will depend on current electricity prices in the location and whether the charging station is a community service or a profit-making company.

As expected, the cost of electricity varies from place to another. Fuel costs change the same across the country. However, the price of charging electric cars also reflects the difference between charging at your home and charging outside it.

A recent study by the Michigan Institute of Transportation took all these factors into account and found that the average cost of electric vehicles nationwide was $485 per year.

In areas where investment in renewable energy prevails, it may be lower. However, if your daily lifestyle will force you to charge away from home, you can pay a premium to third-party charging services.

 

How much is the cheapest Tesla?

According to Tesla’s website, Model 3 now starts at 38,990 dollars. Arndt Ellinghorst, an analyst at Evercore ISI, in early July US tax credits were halved to $1,875, which led the company to lower prices to support demand.

While the initial price of Model 3 has fallen, Tesla’s initiative to simplify its alignment includes a drop in the standard version of its larger S model. The cheapest version is now $79,990, according to the company’s website.

A representative of Tesla said that Tesla also reduced the price of all vehicles shipped to China, from around $55,000 to about $52,000. The cost of model S and model x fell to approximately $113,000 and $115,000, respectively.

The representative said that these changes would not affect the price of models 3 that will occur near Shanghai. Tesla is expected to start production at a plant in Shanghai later this year.
