## Calculating Charging Costs

### Charging a Tesla Battery

1. Step 1: Enter your battery capacity (C) in kilowatt-hours (kWh).
2. Step 2: Input the cost per kilowatt-hour ($R). 3. Step 3: Let the Tesla charging cost calculator do the math for you and reveal the total cost to fully charge your battery. ### Electricity Cost for a Trip 1. Step 1: Enter your driven distance (X) in miles. 2. Step 2: Input the cost per kilowatt-hour ($R).
3. Step 3: Fill in your vehicle’s efficiency (E) — energy consumed in kWh per 100 miles.
4. Step 4: The calculator will provide the cost of your trip.

## Example Calculation

### Trip Cost

1. Step 1: Driven distance (X) = 100 miles.
2. Step 2: Cost per kWh ($R) =$0.15.
3. Step 3: Vehicle efficiency (E) = 160 kWh/100 miles.

## FAQ

### How to Calculate Charging Cost for a Trip?

Multiply driven distance by vehicle efficiency (kWh/100 miles), then multiply the product by electricity unit cost and divide by 100.

### How to Calculate EV Charging Cost?

Multiply battery capacity by electricity unit cost.

### How Much Does it Cost to Charge a Tesla?

To calculate the electricity cost for a trip in a Tesla: Multiply trip distance by vehicle efficiency, then multiply by the charging cost per kWh and divide by 100 (E_C = X * E * R / 100).

### What is Electric Vehicle Efficiency?

It is the power consumed to travel 100 miles or 100 km. For a 2016 Tesla model S, efficiency is 21.75 kWh/100 miles.

### Are Tesla Charging Stations Free?
