Tesla, Inc. manufactures and sells the Tesla Model 3, an all-electric four-door car. It is now the most cheapest automobile in the Tesla model lineup. Model 3 manufacturing began in mid-2017, and Tesla is currently scaling it up. The Tesla Model 3 is the company’s first vehicle to be constructed on its third-generation architecture. It attempts to lower the starting price of electric vehicles while maintaining range and performance.
Safety is the most important part of the overall Model 3 design. For optimum strength in every location, the metal construction is a blend of aluminum and steel. Even with an all-glass roof, the Model 3 resisted roof crush four times its own mass: that’s the same weight as two full-grown African elephants.
Home Charging (0 -> 100%)
Regular wall plugs and charging stations can both be used for charging. A charging station is always used for public charging. When it comes to charging times, it always depends on how fast the charging station. Below is a complete list of Tesla Model 3 charging possibilities. This chart show option of charging from zero level to full charge.
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Avg. Power||Time|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||38h30m|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||12 hours|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||12 hours|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||8h15m|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW †||8h15m|
Rapid charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging provides longer trips by quickly adding as much range as possible. After reaching an 80 percent state of charge, charging power will dramatically drop. As a result, a normal quick charge rarely exceeds 80% state of charge. The rapid charge rate of an electric vehicle is determined by the charger utilized and the maximum charging power that the vehicle is capable of handling.
Table shows all details for rapid charging possibilities of Tesla Model 3 Long Range.
|Charging Point||Avg. Power||Charging Time|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||50 kW||74 min|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||95 kW †||51 min|
|CCS (150 kW DC)||135 kW †||33 min|
|CCS (175 kW DC)||155 kW †||30 min|
|CCS (350 kW DC)||220 kW †||27 min|
Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%.
Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%.
Tesla Model 3 doesn’t emits CO2 while driving. The energy required to charge the battery may have been created (in part) from the combustion of fossil fuels. Internal combustion engine vehicles will always emit CO2. Furthermore, CO2 is emitted during the manufacture and transportation of fossil fuels.
