How much electricity does a Tesla use?
I’ve been researching different electric cars to buy, but I keep coming back to the Tesla. I love the technology and countless safety features. And I’m not going to lie, it just looks plain cool. I know they have a great range, but I’m wondering how much electricity a Tesla uses?

- As you can imagine, the amount of energy a Tesla consumes can depend on a variety of factors and conditions, including battery size.
- The standard Tesla Model 3 has a battery size of about 50 KW and the Model S has a **100 KW **capacity. It’s important to remember that Tesla batteries need not be charged to their full capacity, and these numbers pertain to the estimated amount of power needed.
- The average Tesla will use about** 34 kWh of electricity **for every 100 miles driven. For 100,000 miles, you’re looking at about 34,000 kWh at this rate, and 102,000 kWh to 170,000 kWh for the entire life of the car.
