Will Tesla's Frequent Fast Charging Damage The Car? US Research Report Debunks Myths
Recently, Recurrent Auto, a company in the United States that specializes in selling used electric vehicle driving reports, published a research report indicating that Tesla owners need not have any doubts about fast charging.
Recurrent Auto conducted a study on more than 12,500 Tesla electric vehicles in the United States. They compared the two extremes of cars with a fast charging rate of more than 90% and cars with a fast charging rate of less than 10%. The results showed that the two are different.
For Tesla electric vehicles with charging habits, there is no statistically significant difference in the decline in battery range. In other words, fast charging has no obvious impact on battery degradation.
In fact, Tesla mentions in the user manual that after multiple fast charges, the peak charging power may decrease slightly, but it emphasizes that this is a normal change in physics, so fast charging is not completely unaffected.
At least from the research report of Recurrent Auto, it can be seen that the BMS battery management system has the effect of protecting the battery. Tesla electric vehicles have not significantly reduced the battery life due to frequent use of fast charging.
