This is the standard 3 Pin Connector Charger offered by any motor electric company to charge their vehicles. This sadly also takes a lot of time to charge as it’s the traditional form of charging when it comes to Tesla to fully charge the car.
  • Destination Charger: Tesla offers chargers to its customers for the cost of AED 1,990. Tesla has also set up various charging ports around destinations such as shopping malls and other complexes where clients can stop and recharge their vehicles.
  • Supercharger: The fastest way of charging your Tesla is via the Supercharger that can fully charge the car in just mere 72 mins making it an ideal choice to go for as in this fast-paced world everyone requires competent systems to back their schedules.

Cost of Charging and Maintaining a Tesla?

Standard Wall Charger is affordable and easy. However, it still contributes to your electricity. On the contrary, Destination Chargers are free to use as these are usually set up by the office and shopping malls infrastructure, making it free to use for the larger public. Superchargers set up by Tesla work on points per miles system. Each year you get 400 KWh of free charge credit which accounts for almost 1,550 + Km. Any usage of the Supercharger would be charged at a general rate.
