The charge curve shows the charging behaviour of this car when the battery is in optimal conditions (around. 30 °C). A colder (or warmer) battery can result is a significantly lower charge speed. More information about what influences the charge speed can be found on this page.


Charging without CCS adapter

With a Tesla Model S or Model X (without the CCS-adapter) the quickest way to charge at Fastned is to use the CHAdeMO-adapter.
With this adapter, you can charge up to 50 kW with the CHAdeMO connector. You can add 100 km of range in 25-30 minutes (depending on the exact model).
Please note that we no longer offer CHAdeMO adapters at our stations. You can check if it is possible to get a CHAdeMO adapter yourself, but we recommend ensuring your Tesla is compatible with the CCS adapter.

Navigation & preheating

You can preheat your Tesla's battery by navigating to a Fastned station, which allows your Tesla to charge faster. You can easily find Fastned stations via the Tesla's navigation system.

    Unlock the connector

In some cases, the car may not release the connector.

  • Use your Tesla app (menu 'Charging') or the screen in the vehicle (choose the lightning symbol for the 'Charging' menu and press the lock symbol).
  • Manual release: For that, please open the boot and pull the emergency release ring, adjacent to the charge port. This allows the connector to be removed from the charge port.
