So the Tesla website says to get a Nema 14-50

It goes on to say that the model 3 will charge at 44mph at 90, and 44 mph at 60. So I don't need more then 60?


The Nema 14-50 then says under it that it will be 240 volt / 50 amp and charge at 30mph

So its recommending I use the nema 14-50, which will charge my car slower?? Is there not a nema 60 so I can get 44mph?

No the mobile connector is limited to 32 amps. While on the slow side it should fully charge you overnight. If you want faster you need a HPWC Wired into a 60 amp breaker not a plug. Then you can charge at the maximum 48 amps.
