April is done and I’m looking at how much electric our Tesla Model 3 uses. I know others are thinking how much electricity does a Tesla Model 3 use? Since this is our first full month, I’m anxious to dig into the data.
Our electric bill for April is $19.85, I have to add we have the benefit of rooftop solar installed in 2012. We drove our Blue Tesla Model 3 1157 miles in April. We charged 260 kWh’s at home and 107 kWh’s at Tesla Superchargers. The Supercharger visits were free due to using a Tesla Referral code for our purchase. If we look at it as all charged from home and no solar, we used 367 kWh’s for 1157 miles, or $29.36 cents at our current electric rate.
If you look at our electric use at home and charging our Tesla for April, we used less than 100 kWh’s net as seen in the graphic below.
I’m very happy with this outcome, extremely affordable when looking at cost/mile of driving our Tesla. If we remove the Tesla charging from our April usage and calculate our electric bill, our April electric bill would be ~$4.50.
Now that we know much electricity our Tesla Model 3 uses, we can plan for our future electric needs.
Our previous car would have been able to be driven less than 300 miles on the total cost of electric we used to charge our Tesla Model 3 in April. What an improvement!
