At the recent 2023 Investor Day, Tesla disclosed some data related to electric vehicle charging.
Tesla has previously announced that it has produced 4 million electric vehicles. According to Tesla’s presentation on March 1, 2023, the cumulative total mileage of all models is close to 80 billion miles (129 billion kilometers), which means that the average mileage per vehicle is about 20,000 miles (approx. the scrapped vehicles were not removed at the time).
All Tesla vehicles drive approximately 123 million miles per day, charge 1.9 million times per day (on average) , and drive approximately 30-plus miles (48 km) per vehicle per day.
Additionally, Tesla vehicles average 65 miles (105 kilometers) between charges (AC or DC) . It appears that many owners don’t charge their cars every day, as the average daily mileage seems to be about half of the distance traveled between charges.
By the end of 2022, Tesla already has 4,678 charging stations with 42,419 individual connectors, an average of 9.1 connectors per charging station.

On the next slide, Tesla notes that with 1.5 million Supercharges per week (about 214,000 per day), the charging network will provide about 9 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity in 2022. This means that, on average, a Supercharger is used about 320 times per week, while a charging connector is used 35 times. All of these figures are very rough estimates only.
In terms of supercharge time, the company says the average charge time is gradually decreasing and currently stands at about 27.5 minutes.
IT Home noticed that the chart provided below shows that Tesla has managed to reduce charging time through various measures, including increasing charging power, battery preheating, and other measures to encourage users to only charge to the level needed to reach the next charging station. If this trend continues, the average supercharge time could be less than 25 minutes in the future.
