Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Tesla Model S Dual Motor (2021-…) achieves a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 3.1 seconds (placing it at №44 among 693 electric vehicles) and attains a maximum speed of 130 mph.

Its powertrain provides a power output of up to 504 kW (676 hp) and a torque of N/A lb-ft.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Real-world range of the Tesla Model S Dual Motor (2021-…) is 330–404 miles (ranked №34 out of 693 electric vehicles) — depending on several factors, including:

  • Speed: Higher speeds deplete the battery faster.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and hot weather impacts range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain reduces range.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Use of features: Features like climate control and media system also affect range.

It's important to remember that these are just estimates, and your actual range may vary. It's always best to factor in these various factors when planning your trip and be prepared for potential charging stops.

Plan your trips using the EV Navigation interactive map.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Tesla Model S Dual Motor (2021-…) in the USA comes with a Tesla (NACS) charging port. It can be charged at home using a standard domestic socket or at any public AC charging station with the compatible cable. It's important to note that the car's on-board charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging rate to 11.5 kW, resulting in approximately 40 miles of range added per hour of charging.

For significantly faster charging, public DC fast-charging stations are available. Although the car can achieve a maximum DC charging rate of 250 kW, factors such as battery temperature and charge level may affect the actual charging speed.
