- 2020 Tesla Model 3 AWD LR
The current Teslas comes with a 110-volt charge cable. That gives 2 to 3 mph of charge. No 240 volt charging cable or adapter is standard. A $520 240v, 14-50 plug mobile charging cable is available as an aftermarket item.
You're encouraged to purchase the Tesla wall charger for charging at home. Good advice.
As long as it can handle the 240 volts, you could. And honestly, I’d be rather shocked if it couldn’t. But this was as much research on a car than I’m never going to buy that I was willing to do.
Just to clear up the confusion, the Charger that comes with the Tesla's will work for 120 or 240v. It only comes with the 120v plug, but it's easily interchangeable (it's designed to change the plugs easily) Tesla sells 5 or 6 different plug types for it for 35 dollars each.Did they change this recently? The charging cable that came with my wife's model 3 had a changeable adaptor for either a 120 or 240v outlet.
This is a recent change as the early gens came with the 120v and the 240v in the car.
