How do you open a Tesla charger port?

What’s the best way for me to open a Tesla charger port? I just got a new Model S, and I can’t figure it out. I feel so silly.

No need to feel silly—Teslas are confusing cars! You can open a Tesla charger port in one of four ways:
  • Use the app: Just click the Charging app, then tap Open Charge Port.
  • Use your touchscreen: Tap the lightning bolt icon on the car status area.
  • Use the key fob: Press and hold the Trunk button on your key until the door springs open.
  • Open it manually: If you unlock the doors or carry the key remote nearby while pressing the charge port door inward, it should spring open.
