Tesla roadsters are fun, fast rides for any car enthusiast! And, like any
, the charging times are fairly reasonable! Depending on the charger you use, you can fully charge a Roadster in 1-30 hours.
Here are the standard charge times for each of Tesla’s chargers:
  • Level-1 chargers take approximately 30 hours fully charge the Roadster.
  • Level-2 chargers usually take between six to 10 hours to get a full charge.
  • Fast charging stations like the Tesla Supercharger can fully charge a Roadster in 45 to 55 minutes.
Roadsters boast an enormous 600-mile range per charge, so it’s unlikely that you’ll need to charge your car too often.
