We don’t know the exact charge times for the
TeslaCybertruck, yet. Considering the Cybertruck will be outfitted with the charging technology necessary to utilize the upcoming Supercharger V4, though, we know it’s going to be fast!
Announcements have slowly been trickling in about the long-awaited release of the Tesla Cybertruck. Elon Musk has confirmed that he still believes production will begin in 2023.
We’ll know more when this electric truck concept finally hits the road, but until then, here’s everything we know about the Tesla Cybertruck battery charge times.

How long does a Tesla Cybertruck take to charge?
There is still plenty of speculation surrounding what type of battery the Tesla Cybertruck will use, especially as it relates to Tesla’s ability to mass produce the Cybertruck. So until we get further confirmation—hopefully, in 2023—we can only estimate charge times.
However, one exciting thing we do know about the Tesla Cybertruck is that it will be compatible with the V4 Supercharger, which enables one megawatt (1,000 kW) of charging. That’s a dramatic increase from the 250 to 324 kW output of the V3 Supercharger.
This new charging innovation redesigns the liquid-cooling technology by having its high-voltage conductors immersed in coolant return tubes (V4), rather than having coolant tubes inside the charger (V3). As a result, this allows Tesla to pump a lot more current through the same-diameter cable.
The Cybertruck will share the V4 Supercharger compatibility with Tesla’s Semi, which makes sense, considering both vehicles are expected to require much more power than the sedans and SUVs.
But knowing the charging capacity of the V4 Supercharger is three to four times faster than the V3, the charge times should still be exponentially quicker—even with more power needed per recharge.

At-home charging speeds for a Tesla Cybertruck
The Tesla Cybertruck is expected to require more power to reach a full charge. In a perfect (futuristic) world, you’d have a V4 supercharger right in your garage—but that will not be the case. There are various ways to charge your EV at home, but they don’t come close to the capacity of public charging stations.
We’ll know more once the battery size officially gets announced, but it’s fair to assume that charging your Tesla Cybertruck at home will be slower, considering the amount of power it will require. For reference, here’s a look at current at-home charge times for other Tesla models:
Home charging method
120-volt outlet (Level 1)
3.6 to 4.4 days
5.4 to 7.0 days
3.4 to 4.6 days
240-volt outlet w/NEMA adapter (Level 2)
10 to 11.5 hours
16.8 to 21.8 hours
8.1 to 11 hours
Wall connector (Level 2)
5.6 to 9.6 hours
11.4 to 14.8 hours
6.0 to 7.5 hours
Public charging speeds for a Tesla Cybertruck
While at-home charging is convenient, the only way to achieve fast charging is at a public charging point—especially at a
Tesla Supercharger station.
And since the Tesla Cybertruck will be compatible with the one megawatt V4 Supercharger, the possibilities are undoubtedly exciting.
The V3 Supercharger can already generate up to 200 miles of energy in just 15 minutes for other Tesla models. So to think of anything faster feels a little mind-bending!
But until Tesla releases more information about the Cybertruck’s battery and it hits mass production, we can only make assumptions about its public charging speeds.
