    Model S REST API

    In that case it makes sense the two values are the same in the API.

    Model S REST API

    Does the model 3 (in-car display) allow you to switch between "rated range" (EPA) and "ideal range"? (also known as "typical range" (EPA) and "rated range" (NEDC) in Europe/Australia etc) like the Model S and X do? They use different efficiency values (200Wh/km and 160Wh/km on my model S) so...

    Superchargers in Australia

    The seasons on the official Tesla map are US centric Eg Singleton which says "Fall 2018" @Chuq helpfully transcribed those to Aussie seasons in this post above.

    It's the number of milliseconds since January 1 1970 00:00:00 UTC Like a Unix Timestamp but with 3 more digits. Here's a converter 1526441782 Is equivalent to: 2018-05-16T03:36:22+00:00 in ISO 8601

    Codes for Tesla colours

    There's no such colour. Steel Grey got renamed to Midnight Silver And from Meloccom's first link "The New Metallic Grey - Steel Grey now called Midnight Silver paint code is PMNG"

    another Tesla S under $85K...

    That car definitely doesn't have Autopilot hardware. You can also tell by the instrument cluster still showing the old analog speedo/power meter but with a representation of the car in the centre. And if the "first P85+ in Australia" is correct it was this demo one that arrived in mid...

    TuneIn Radio/digital radio in Australia

    Just bear in mind that the Frunk (Froot!) could be difficult or impossible to open after a crash - which is when you're most likely to need that med kit! I keep my emergency supplies (sat phone, etc) in the sub-boot - even if the hatch can't be opened it can always be accessed by folding down...

    Tesla Destination Connector Problem

    No I'm talking about a type2-type2 adapter, wired like the EVnomics type1-type2 adapter. You'd need something like the EVNomics type1-type2 adapter, except using a type2 "vehicle inlet" You can't use the type2-type2 cable I linked earlier because the type2 standard specifically forbids the...

    NRMA fast charging network

    Angle parking is also a problem, especially if combined with a narrow one-way street so there's no room to turn the car around and reverse in, leading to desperation parking like this (in Dunsborough) Somehow people make the assumption that all EVs have charge-ports in the same place...

    Tesla Destination Connector Problem

    It's really unfortunate Tesla are installing three-phase HPWC at single phase sites (as opposed to their surplus single-phase HPWCs) as this causes the problem as described for the original single-charger Model S Don't wire it up that way. The adapter only needs to connect to L1 on the...

    Queensland Electric Highway

    Australia is the only country with a mix of CCS1 and CCS2, it wouldn't be worth the effort for PlugShare to split them into two categories. And their icon for Tesla Superchargers/HPWCs are wrong outside of North America/Japan too. When they get around to fixing that perhaps they'll have...

    The stickers don't match the plugs in Adelaide or the latest Tritium about to go live in WA either. Fortunately it looks like the Qld government is getting ready to push for Type 2 & CCS2 to become a national standard. The scale and imminent roll out of the Queensland Electric Super Highway...

    I didn't think there were any CCS2 cars in Australia yet (other than the Ioniq demonstrator) Or did you mean CHAdeMO? (the other cable) CCS1: CCS2: CHAdeMO: Edit: knew I had a better photo somewhere but couldn't find it.. Then realised I'd posted it to the first page of this thread...

    I'd need to see photos of the CCS plugs (like the one I posted for Adelaide) to be 100% sure, but I'm fairly certain both of those are CCS1.

    There's two stations, and yes they do. Anyway, I'm curious how many of the 18 BMW i3s sold in SA had the $1000 fast charging option fitted. I know many dealers outside of WA were advising against it because there's "nowhere to fast charge"

    Yes that's the "AC charging, Mennekes socket" @meloccom was talking about. It's the standard for AC charging stations in Europe - provide a Mennekes (type 2) socket and then drivers BYO the appropriate lead. No klutzing around with adapters, and less chance of someone cutting the cable from...

    What was your car's battery percent at the time? 45kW sounds about right for ~75% SoC.

    According to Auto Classic BMW in WA all future i3s will have type2 or type2 CCS. I don't know, but this news from BMW might help stir things up

    Supercharger-Adelaide (SA)

    The Schneider EVLinks are type2 sockets, yes (22kW 3phase AC) - BYO type2-type2 cable (or type2-type1 for Leaf, Volt, etc) But there are also a couple of Tritium Veefil DC fast chargers, which typically have CHAdeMO and CCS. The Veefil in WA has type 1 CCS, the Veefil in Cairns has type 2. NZ...

    Can someone in Adelaide please satisfy my curiosity and take photos of the Veefil plugs? I assume they have CHAdeMO and CCS, but am curious if they went CCS-1 or CCS-2

    NEMA 14-50 & 6-50 are single phase, 208V or 220V, 50A (but limited to 40A for "continuous draw") There aren't any three-phase sockets in the U.S., and no Model 3s outside the U.S. at this time. We'll have to wait for them to start deliveries in Europe to find out what three-phase adapters they...

    Not enough Superchargers

    Yalata was closed down & abandoned when I passed through there last year. I was advised by someone @ Tesla that they aim for gaps of 160km-250km between superchargers. With that in mind I would put the Nullarbor superchargers at: Balladonia 191km from Norseman Caiguna 181km from...

    A suggestion (for when you get back!) is to add "unread" to the end of each link, ie Supercharger -Eaton (WA) previously Bunbury (WA) instead of Supercharger -Eaton (WA) previously Bunbury (WA) P.S. I like having the individual build threads in the sticky section, but having a wiki'd index is...

    Queensland Electric Highway

    Also, for anyone that already owns a Juice Booster 2, EVnomics can source a type-2 input tail - meaning one less (long) cable to carry around plus the ability to use JB2 extension leads - while adding the risk that a dead JB2 prevents you from charging on type2 as well.

    Spotted in Australia and New Zealand

    There are only two kinds. The original "proprietary" Tesla socket is used on USA/Canada/Japan cars. These countries use 110V/120V domestically and three-phase sockets aren't really a thing, so they only have 5 pins (Active, Neutral, Earth, Control pin and PIlot pin - the same pins as...

    Supercharger - Clare SA

    I had a play with numbers a while ago, to see where I would put superchargers between Perth and Adelaide (using 160km-250km spacing) I had Clare as my last stop before Adelaide, specifically because it was a good compromise between the two main highways leading North. Also, good wine...

    I'm told that it's coming in Q4 this year, at the carpark near the marker on Tesla's map (East of Arthur St) I've been past there twice in the last couple of weeks. ~11am on a Monday and ~1pm on a Thursday and in both cases the carpark was bursting at the seams with cars, despite being...

    Confused Model X owner re charging

    EVnomics has just received a shipment of them, which several of us were awaiting. I suspect @timpoo has been busy installing Aussie plugs, testing and shipping them and hasn't had the chance to update the website yet. There's a few places in Europe that sell them but you'd have to find a...
