Fast Charging vs Slow Charging: Which is Better for Your Electric Car Battery Life?

    As electric vehicles (EVs) gain traction, concerns about the impact of fast charging on battery longevity have lingered. A recent study by Recurring Auto, analyzing data from 12,500 Tesla EVs in the US, brings some reassuring news for EV owners.

    The study divided Tesla EVs into two groups: those that engaged in frequent fast charging (90% of the time) and those that opted for slower charging (less than 10% of the time). Contrary to common belief, the study found that battery life showed no significant difference between the two groups. In fact, detailed graphs depicting battery range over time for Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles underscored this point.
