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 vehicle must have software version 2021.44.25 or higher and you must have Tesla app version 4.5.1 or higher and be using the owner account for the vehicle.
From the Tesla app, select ‘Charge Stats.’ View your vehicle’s monthly or yearly charging history which includes the energy charged (in kWh) and estimated spending of your vehicle’s charging cost. 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:
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. The total spent on charging is determined by:
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:
You can view the total or 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.
For accurate insights of your savings and costs, set charging costs for each of the charging locations: Home, Work and Other.
For Home Charging
To set your Home charging rate, you can either select a rate from our list or manually enter custom rates to match your needs.
To select a rate from our list, follow these steps:
- Tap ‘State.’
- Tap ‘Utility.’

- Tap ‘Save.’
To manually set your rate, follow these steps:

- Enter your Utility Provider name and Rate Plan name.
- Select either ‘Time of Use’ or ‘Seasons’ depending on your rate pricing structure.
- If your rate uses ‘Time of Use,’ tap ‘rate periods’ and drag the slider to edit time periods. Tap ‘Add Time Period’ to add a new period. Multiple peak periods are supported. Repeat this step for weekends.
- If your rate uses seasons, set your season using the handles. Use ‘+’ or ‘–’ to add or remove Seasons. Up to three seasons are currently supported. Enter the rate pricing for this season. You can set a unique buy and sell price for each time period, depending on your rate plan.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6 to account for all time periods and seasons.
- Review the summary screen, and then tap ‘Save.’
For Work Charging
By default, the Work price is based on the average estimated cost of electricity in the relevant region. You can personalize this to accurately reflect your experience with a price per kWh estimate. If your work offers free EV charging, set your custom rate as zero.
For Other Locations
By default, charging at other locations uses a 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.
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.
To optimize your total spending, prioritize charging during the off-peak period.
