Understanding Charge Stats

Charge Stats in the Tesla app helps you understand your vehicle’s charging behavior and how it relates to your total spending and savings from charging a Tesla vehicle.

Note: To access this feature, the primary vehicle owner must have Tesla app version 4.5.1 or higher and the vehicle must have software version 2021.44.25 or higher.

Charging History

From the Tesla app, select ‘Charge Stats.’ View your vehicle’s charging history which includes the energy charged (in kWh) and estimated spending of your vehicle’s charging cost from the previous 31 days. To view the total energy charged and spending for a specific day, tap and hold on the day in the graph. You can also view the percentage of your vehicle’s total charge based on type of charging location. The type of charging location currently consists of:

home icon

Home Charging

Home charging costs are calculated using your utility rate plan you set in the app for all charging that happens at your Home location.

supercharger icon

Supercharger

Supercharging costs are displayed using your Tesla vehicle’s billing data over the time period.

other icon

Other

Other refers to the cost of all charging that occurs at locations except your Home or Tesla Superchargers. By default, Other is calculated using the average estimated cost of electricity for your region. You can simply update the price with your own estimate for charging at other locations.

Gas Savings

The Gas Savings are derived from the cost of charging your Tesla vehicle and the estimated cost of gas while driving a comparable gasoline vehicle* within the last 31-day period. The total spent on charging is determined by:

Total Spent on Charging = Cost at Home + Cost at Superchargers + Cost at Other Locations

Gas Savings is an estimate of how much money you save by driving a Tesla as opposed to a comparable gasoline vehicle. Gas savings is determined by:

Gas Savings = Gas Equivalent Cost in a Gasoline Vehicle – Total Spent on Charging

*Tesla has assumed a fuel economy of 28 miles per gallon for Model 3 and Model Y and 21 miles per gallon for Model S and Model X for a comparable gasoline vehicles.

Average Cost

You can view the average cost per kWh for each type of charging location for your vehicle.

Often, charging your Tesla vehicle at home is the cheapest option, and your savings may increase by switching to a time-of-use rate plan designed for EV charging, if available.

Setting Charging Costs

For accurate insights of your savings and costs, set charging costs for the two charging locations: Home and Other.

For Home Charging

For Other Locations
By default, other locations use a default price based on the average estimated cost of electricity in the relevant region. You can personalize this to more accurately reflect your experience with a price per kWh estimate of your charging at your most frequent charging locations by modifying the custom rate.

Time-of-Use at Home

You can view the total Home charging energy in % or kWh that was used for your vehicle in each of your time-of-use rate plan’s off-peak, mid-peak and peak periods. Tap on the bars to toggle between % or kWh view.

To optimize your total spending, prioritize charging during the off-peak period.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why don’t I see the Charge Stats feature in the Tesla app?
There are a few reasons why you may not have access to Charge Stats

Why don’t I see all of my charging sessions?
The Charge Stats feature adds up all charging that occurred for each type of charging location by day.
Note: Charging data can take up to 24 hours to update depending on vehicle connectivity at the location of the charging session.

Why does a single charging session show up over two days in the charging history graph?
For charging sessions that span multiple days, the graph will display the total energy charged for each day. If your vehicle is charged overnight, the graph will display one bar for the total energy charged for day one and another bar for the total energy charged for day two.

Why do I see zero savings?
In the Gas Savings section, if the Gas Equivalent is equal to or lower than your Total Spent, you will see no savings. Review how much your vehicle is charging during the peak period and consider scheduling your vehicle charging at off-peak or mid-peak periods.
