How can I charge my Tesla?
Tesla Superchargers provide 170 miles of range in as little as 30 minutes, which is more than twice as fast as the leading public charging station. Charging Tesla by one of the Superchargers is Free!
You can use Public Direct Current Stations (CHAdeMO). They called Rapid Chargers.
To use Rapid charging stations, you will need a CHAdeMO adapter (optional) and Supercharging enabled on your Model S. The adapter is available as aftermarket accessory via Tesla service centres.
RAPID chargers can charge with 50 kW (85 miles range per half hour charging).
SLOW public chargers
The majority of public charging stations have a Type 2 socket. A Type 2 cable can be ordered as an aftermarket accessory via a delivery specialist or Tesla service centre. Some charging stations will also offer a domestic socket. A 3 pin domestic adapter for the Mobile Connector comes as standard.
Typically you will need a RFID card or app to unlock the charging stations. You will receive a card for access from POD Point with your delivery. According to Tesla official website " Most charging stations in the UK will provide 7 kW which adds 20 miles of range per hour. However, the charging rate can be as low as 8 miles up to 68 miles per hour (with dual chargers), depending on the available power of the station".
Tesla car can collect you from your door step. You do not need a chauffeur anymore. TESLA new software Version 7.0 allows Tesla automatically to steer down the motorway, change lane and adjust speed to the traffic. It is possible as TESLA Model S is equipped with ultrasonic sensor, cameras and radar. Tesla will be able to change lane for you once its speed accedes 65 mph.
