Supercharging in Cold Weather

Included in 2024.2.6

If you’re heading to a charger in colder conditions, use the vehicle Navigation to route there. In addition to preparing the battery, this now automatically starts warming the charge port inlet.

Other Tips for Charging in Cold Weather

When You Plug In — Clear away ice and other debris from your charging cable connector and charge port, and check that they’re fully connected.

When You Unplug — After charging in frozen conditions, if you can’t unplug, try warming the charge port inlet:

In the Tesla app, you can turn on Defrost Truck, or in the vehicle, turn on Side Mirror Defrost.

Alternatively you can prepare ahead of time: In the Tesla app, go to Schedule > Departure, or in your vehicle settings, go to Charging > Schedule > Settings > Preconditioning.

If warming alone is unsuccessful, you can pull the manual release (in the trunk) to disengage the charge port latch.

See your Owner’s Manual sections on Cold Weather Best Practices and Charging.
