Slow (Home and some Public Chargers)
Each EV has an inbuilt charger capable of receiving AC power. The charging port could have different fittings depending on where you are in the world. Even the same vehicle model sold in different countries could have different implementations.
|Type 1 (SAE J1772 or "J Plug")
This plug is common in Australasia, Asia, the US and Canada.
|Type 2 (IEC 62196 or "Mennekes")
This plug is common in Europe.
Only available in some public chargers, this uses DC power to charge the battery directly. Each EV has a maximum speed at which it can be charged, and batteries are only fastcharged up to 80% capacity to ensure battery health. There are a number of different port configurations.
Many fast chargers will have multiple connectors, and power capacity (which is increasing as the technology improves).
CCS (Combined Charging System)
CCS ports are a combination of the slow charging port and an extra 2-pin socket. Therefore they can be either Type 1 or Type 2.
Developed in Japan, the CHAdeMO is common in vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf.
Tesla developed their own fastcharge connector, although in some countries without proprietary Tesla chargers, the vehicle has a cable to adapt to CHAdeMO or Type 2 CCS.
How Fast Can An EV Charge?
Slow charging (home and public)
Slow charging is limited by the lower of: the EV's onboard charging speed, or the output of the wall-mounted charger you are plugged into. Charging speed is measured in kilowatts(kW). For example: your wall-mounted charger can output 32 Amps at 240 volts = 7.68 kW of power, however your EV's onboard charger is 6.6 kW - then that is the maximum speed. The higher the battery capacity, the more time it takes to charge.
DC fast chargers are being built with higher capacities, however this is still limited by the hardware limitations the EV manufacturer has placed on the battery. Most DC fast chargers start at 40kW (many have a much higher capacity).

Tesla Model X Pros & Cons
The Tesla Model X is, arguably, the most versatile electric vehicle on sale today. It has a good range, it's fast, and it has plenty of space.
The Model X comes with five seats as standard but this can be upgraded to as many as seven. When the rear seats aren't in use, the second and third rows can be folded down flat. This feature means the Model X has a total cargo capacity of 88.1 cubic feet - more than any of its competitors.
Like the Model S, a 17-inch touchscreen is the centerpiece of the cabin in the Model X. Bluetooth, collision avoidance, automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, power and heated side mirrors, and proximity key entry are all standard features.
Optional extras include Enhanced Autopilot, a 17-speaker sound system, a high amperage charger, and satellite radio.
Rear falcon wing doors are a key stylistic feature of the Model X. The doors have sensors to ensure they don't hit obstacles when they open. Not only are the falcon wing doors stylish but they also offer excellent access to the second and optional third-row seats.
There's great visibility in the front, thanks to the Model X's panoramic windshield. This also means that all passengers can expect good headroom.
Tesla Model X Performance Specifics
The Model X Performance edition replaces the P100D which was available from January 2017 until February 2019.
A 100 kWh battery powers the Model X Performances’s 568 kW electric motor, which produces a mammoth 792 lb-ft of torque.
The end result of all this power is a 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. Incredible, especially when you consider the Model X weighs 5441 lbs.
The Model X Performance is good for 289 miles between charges. Charge times are good too, a Tesla Supercharger can provide up to 167 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
An optional upgrade to the Performance model is Ludicrous Mode – this enables 20% faster acceleration.
