Any idea how long it takes to charge a car like a Tesla when fully discharged to full charge from 240 volt supply?The Model S with the 300 mile range should take about 13 hours if you are using a 30-amp circuit. (85kwh/6.5kw)Half that that time if you have a 60Amp circuit (and EVSE)The Model S with the 230 mile range would be about 9.2 hours (60kwh/6.5kw)Personally, I'm never going to have 230 miles in a day and be back home at night, much less 300. If I'm driving that far, I'm going on a trip. So empty-to-full charge time is not something I would be looking at. I would be looking at charge time for my typical commute/errands - and for a busy day running around to many places (shopping or running lots of errands)I live in New Jersey, so I would have no use for a Tesla.I don't think living in NJ is a reason not to use a Tesla. They don't turn off when you drive from Pennsylvania into NJ.
