The Model 3 is the most accessible electric vehicle Tesla, available from US$46,990, but how much does it actually cost to charge the car? Tesla, meanwhile, offers several Model 3 finishes or the average charge price of a Tesla Model 3, depending on the battery effort and estimated capacity of the model. Also, the location of the residential carrier can also affect the actual cost.
Tesla offers the Model 3 in three versions. Currently, the Pattern 3 trail running model costs US$46,990, offers a maximum speed of 140mph and can accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.8 seconds. Next we see the Long Range Model 3, which is available for $55,990. It offers a maximum speed of just under 145 mph but takes on driving range leadership. The Performance Model 3 starts at $62,990 and has the best acceleration of the three.
Some factors determine the cost of charging a Tesla Model 3 or other EV. First you need to know the size of the battery and its estimated capacity. After that, there should be an idea about the average cost of electrical energy in your place. According to the EIA, the average cost of residential electricity in the United States is 13.72 cents per quilowatt hour. Taking into account charging a Tesla at home or on a Supercharger, the charging costs of a Model 3 vary. For reference, residential carriers are not as efficient as thought, it can take hours or days depending on the carrier’s carrying capacity.
The Standard Rear-Wheel Drive Model 3 comes with a 50 kWh battery and an estimated speed of 472 miles. If the vehicle is to be covered in a residential area, the average cost will be about US$7. Based on this calculation, the average cost per mile is approximately US$0.025. The numbers quoted here represent a full charge from 0 to 100 percent and increase battery efficiency between 80 and 90 percent. The Performance Model 3 comes with a maximum battery of 82 kWh and offers an estimated battery life of 315 miles. Taking the same factors into account, Performance Model 3 charging could cost about US$11 on average, which translates to US$0.036 per thousand. Last but not least, the Long Range Model 3 also has an 82 kWh battery and will run approximately 558 miles on a full charge. Transporting an electric vehicle with a residential configuration can also cost about US$11, which works out to about US$0.035 per thousand.
It is important to note that these numbers are not an exact representation of what a specific Tesla Model 3 can handle charging. If anything, the owners will end up spending more. However, there are good indications of what the speed would be to drive a Tesla Model 3. It is undoubtedly the average prices to charge a Model 3 at home. It is loaded with a Supercharger, the exact cost will vary depending on the location. Since the quilowatt hour cost is normally higher, the cost of a Tesla Model 3 will also be higher.
