The phrase is a software concept. The user should never have to enter anything which the computer can figure out for itself.
Maybe a supercharger extension cable could be offered in the tesla store.I think it would be nice if Tesla gave us a charge port on the front, passenger side of the CT. This would allow those of us with trailers more options for charging without unhooking.
I wonder how much trouble it would be to add a second charge port if Elon doesn't give us one in the front.
never thought about that.....I'd be pissed tooHaving all the charge ports in the same place makes it easier to design stations. There are usually one or two charge stalls suitable for people towing at each station.
Opening up the Superchargers to non-Tesla’s is going to shoot that effort in the foot.
Going to be infuriating rolling into an empty stall at the Supercharger station and realizing the guy in the stall next door is using the charger for your space because their charge port in on the off—side and it’s the only way it’ll reach.
I've always wanted to ride a unicorn. I guess I can settle for driving one.For the next year, Cybertrucks will be unicorns. Rare, often talked about, hardly ever seen in person.
Musk said they would have adaptors at the charge stations. To participate in the $7.5B government subsidies on building out the EV charger network, they have to be able to charge any brand vehicle. Requiring people buy an adaptor seems like it's at least against the spirit of that.It is also possible that EVs from other manufacturers will have to by an adapter (that may or may not include some cable length, depending on the EV). I assume only two adapters, one with cable and one without. Maybe 4, with the CCS1 w/cable, CCS1 w/o cable, J1772 w/cable, J1772 w/o cable.
I fully expect participating in the above mentioned government funding Tesla would need to charge the same rate to everyone (presumably Supercharger for life folks are exempt). Otherwise a company could support everyone in theory and just price non-Tesla owners out of the market.I also assume that non-Tesla EVs will pay a higher rate than Tesla owners... unless that manufacturer 'joins' the supercharger network.
